Scripture is filled with reminders on how we need to trust God and why we should do so. Undoubtedly because of our sin, we still fall short of this daily with how we live our lives. For believers, we need to be reminded with the Word that God is good….indeed all the time, and that we can trust Him in every circumstance. For the nonbeliever, it’s important to seek out what the Bible has to say about God and why you can trust Him.
We often find ourselves going through difficult times when we are questioning God and our trust of Him the most. These are the times I believe we need to anchor on to Scripture. It’s always easier to remind someone else to trust God through difficult times then it is to tell ourselves that. We have a hard time seeing beyond what we are currently going through ourselves.
If we believe Jesus has died on the Cross and rose again, defeating death and sin in victory, we can surely believe that God will provide our every need, in any circumstance we are going through.
Let’s look and see what the Bible has to say with Scripture on Trusting God:
Psalm 118:8 – It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
John 14:1 – Jesus said, “Trust in God; trust also in me.”
