10 Reasons To Trust God
You may have been told that you should trust God, but maybe you want to know why? I’m going to give you 10 reasons to trust God. This will help you so that you can trust God in all circumstances I could not imagine my life without having Jesus to depend on.
Where would I be? What would my life look like now? I don’t want to know.
You can learn how to develop trust in God. It’s something that we have to make a conscious decision to do daily. I know it seems hard and you wonder how can I trust God when bad things happen? But you can.
You need to realize that God is not the one that causes bad things to happen. In 1 Corinthians 14:33 KJV, it says that God is not the author of confusion, but peace.
We live in a fallen world, and we have an enemy that has a goal to steal, kill, and destroy us. God is a wonderful, loving, and faithful Father that wants nothing but the best for His children.

Why Is It Important To Trust God?
It’s important to trust God because the Bible says that it is impossible to please God without faith. Faith and trust in God, are they the same thing?
According to my NLT Study Bible, Faith is reliance, loyalty, or complete trust in God.
Trust is assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of God.
We can see that trust a part of faith, so to have faith in God you need to trust God.
You should start trusting God with your future and learning how to trust God in difficult times. It’s easy to trust God when everything is going well, but what do you do when it's hard to trust God? When everything around is falling apart. That’s when you know that you really do trust and have faith in God.
10 Reason To Trust God
I’m sure there are more than 10 reasons to have faith in God but I will give you 10 reasons to believe in God based on my experiences that I have had with the Lord.
God Keeps His Word Because He Is Faithful
For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does.
Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands.
God cannot lie, the Bible says that He honors His Word above His very name. That means that He will do what He said in His Word. You have the promises that He put in the Bible and they all belong to you, that is one of the benefits of trusting God.
God Can Do Anything
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”
If you are not putting your trust in God…then who are you putting your trust in? People will fail you; the governments of this world will fail you. God never fails. When you put your trust in God, you always win.
God Has A Plan For Your Life
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.
Whose plan would you prefer to follow? God already has a plan for your life, and you can find it in His Word and through the Holy Spirit, that is the power of faith in God, you just have to trust Him.
I prefer to walk in God’s plan for my life over any plan that I may make for myself because He knows the beginning and He knows the end.
God Knows Your Future
You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
He knows how things are going to turn out if I make a certain move. Sometimes the plans that we have for our lives seem like a good idea to us, but God knows how that plan will turn out.
Sometimes He may step in and not allow it to happen. We may feel upset and ask why should I trust God? But He could have saved your life, there are just some things that we may not know.
I can honestly say that I’ve had some of those situations happen to me. I thought I wanted something and when it didn’t happen, I was upset, but you know what, later down the line I realized that God gave me something better.
God Loves You
See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.
For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
God’s love for us is like no one else could ever love us. He sent Jesus to die for us when we were still sinners. Who would send their only son to die knowing that all would not accept him? That is truly the amazing love of God.
Now once we accept Jesus to be our Lord and savior our sins are forgiven, and we now have eternal life! But that’s not it, God calls us His child, He also calls us very own possession. The NIV translation of 1 Peter 2:9 says that we are God’s special possession.
How wonderful to know that we are special to God. How would you treat someone special to you? Well, imagine how God treats someone special to Him.
God Will Work Things Out For You
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!
Did you know that even when we make mistakes, God still works on our behalf?
I have had situations that I got myself into from making bad decisions and I can truly say that Romans 8:28 is true, because God still worked out my situation for my benefit and that’s the benefit of having faith in God.
God Takes Care Of Your Needs
“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.
I will be your God throughout your lifetime until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.
Just trust Him, can’t you feel the love and compassion in those verses. God wants to take care of us, He wants to provide for us, but we need to let Him, we need to receive from Him what He has said in His word. We need to understand the importance of believing in God.
Worrying is not trusting Him, He said we are more valuable to Him than the birds that He feeds. Look at what He says in Isaiah, He made you, He will take care of you, He will be with you throughout your lifetime, He will carry you along and save you. Wow-what a promise.
Without Faith, You Can Not Please God
And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
So, faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.
Faith is complete trust in God. So, for you to please God you must trust Him. You must believe that He exists and that He will do what He said He would do. I included Romans 10:17 to show you how to build your faith, or how you can trust God more.
It comes through hearing the word of God and that could be through preaching, teaching, studying, meditating. This year we should all make it a point to get into the Word of God.
That is one thing that I will be focusing on studying and understanding the Bible and meditating on scriptures and asking the Holy Spirit to give me revelation and understanding into God’s word as that will help me to continually build my faith.
You Will Be Blessed
So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith.
Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”
When you trust God, you will be blessed. The same blessing that Abraham received, that alone is an amazing promise, that is one of the benefits of trusting God. If you don’t know about Abraham I advise you to do a character Bible study on him.
It will open your eyes and help you to understand the blessing that is in store for you when you put your faith in God.
God Is Compassionate
It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.
Thank God for His compassion towards us. He feels what we are going through and what we deal with. He wants to help us. Why wouldn’t you trust Him? If I was going to put my trust in anyone it would have to be someone that feels what I feel and understands what I am going through and sympathizes with it.
It is because of His compassion that we are protected and provided for. His love never fails, His compassion and mercies are new every morning, they will never run out.
These are my 10 reasons to trust God based on what I have gone through, and I can tell you that no matter the situation you are going through never stop trusting the Lord.
