11 Bible Verses For Trusting God
The Word of God is so powerful, and the Bible is just that, the Word of God. We must realize that we need to believe what God says to us in His Word. Using the Word of God to overcome circumstances is so important, like using Bible verses for trusting God in hard times.
God magnifies His Word over His name, We have no reason to doubt or fear because He will do what He said He would do if we focus on God, not the circumstances.
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
God tells us right here, there is no need for us to be afraid because He is always with us. He also describes Himself as our God. That shows that we have a relationship with Him.
He will be there for us in our times of need, and He will give us strength when we feel that we don’t have any left, and He will hold us up with His victorious hand. If God is holding us up and He is victorious, then we can’t lose. Those are some of the benefits of having faith in God.
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.
We must trust God completely, not just sometimes or when it makes sense to us because trusting God in difficult times doesn’t always make sense. We can’t just depend on our understanding because God knows more than we could ever imagine.
We should seek Him, bring any decisions to Him and ask for His leading and guidance through the Holy Spirit and His word. Sometimes we end up in bad situations because we didn’t ask God to show us which way to go, but I am so thankful for His grace and mercy.
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.
We may have made a few mistakes today maybe you wavered and didn’t have faith in God…but guess what? According to God’s Word, His mercies are new every morning. Perhaps you missed the mark today, tomorrow is a new day, get up and start over again.
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. 5 Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you.
To delight in someone means that you experience joy and pleasure in their presence and in order to do that, you need to know them. Just like the Lord we need to know Him better.
Committing yourself to the Lord means to give your all over to Him and trust that He will take care of it all better than you could if you did it yourself. You need to be patient as He works everything out for you and He will because God is bigger than your problem.
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! 4 Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.
Do you want peace in the midst of turmoil? Focus on God, not the circumstances. Even when things don’t look like you want them to or it seems like you have been praying forever for something that still hasn’t happened.
Just continue to keep your thoughts focused on God and His word and trust Him that’s how you can show faith in daily life. You will see the victory! Just keep repeating this to yourself “My God is bigger than any problems I face.”
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
As this verse says, very clearly if you know Him then you will trust Him. We should all strive to develop a deeper and intimate relationship with God. As you begin to know who He is, that will build your trust in Him.
God will not leave you, now remember it doesn’t mean that life will always be a bed of roses and you won’t have any problems; it just means that no matter what you are going through He will be there with you. Keep having faith in God during hard times.
But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. 4 I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?
David turns his fear into faith. He said that when he is afraid, he trusts God, David was trusting God in tough times. That’s what we should, if we ever feel afraid, turn it over to God and trust that he will take care of it by putting your faith in him.
I love that part of the verse that David says I trust in God so why should I be afraid. And sometimes we need to talk to ourselves and say don’t you trust God…then stop being afraid. There is no need to fear when you put your complete trust in God.
We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. 21 In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. 22 Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone.
Put your trust in the Lord; He is the one that can help and protect you. As you put your trust in him your heart will be glad and your mind will be at peace because you know that your heavenly father will come through for you that’s the importance of having faith in God.
“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. 8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
What an amazing verse to give you hope as you continue trusting God in tough times. I love the comparison of us to a tree that is continuously being nourished. As we trust in God we are blessed, what happens around us will not affect us, in times of trouble God will take care of us.
We are given strength for our needs, and we also produce fruit, so as we receive strength, we have more than we need to help others. Now if this verse should give you encouragement to continue trusting God in all circumstances.
This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Trusting God is a choice, this verse says, be strong, do not be afraid. These are all conscious decisions we have to make when we choose to trust the Lord. We can be confident in that decision because God is always with us, He will never leave us, He is with us wherever you go.
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.
This is one of my favorite verses, it is so encouraging to know that God has a plan for my life, and it is for me to succeed. God knows the future and He created the plan so if we are willing to partner with him to fulfill the plan that he has for our lives unending hope and an amazing future.
I pray that each of these verses help to build up your faith and remind you that you can trust God in all circumstances. Read, study, and meditate on these verses they will strengthen your faith and help you to understand how much God really loves you.
