Are you going through a difficult time?
Trusting God can be hard, especially when you feel like He’s not listening.
Maybe you’ve been praying for healing from an illness, for a job, or for a way out of a difficult situation, but it seems like nothing is happening.
You might even feel like God has abandoned you.
It’s normal to feel this way sometimes.
Even the great Bible hero, Job, went through a time when he felt abandoned by God.
But in the end, Job learned that God is always with us, even in our darkest hours.
What does the Bible say about trusting God in difficult times?
The Bible has a lot to say about trust.
In difficult times, we are often tempted to lose faith and give up on God.
However, the Bible tells us time and again that He is faithful and will never leave us or forsake us.
Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. (Jeremiah 17:7)
Why is trusting God so important?
God wants us to trust Him with all our hearts because He knows what is best for us.
When we try to figure things out on our own, we will always make mistakes.
But when we trust in God, no matter what happens, we know that everything will work out for our good in the end.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” – Proverbs 3:5-6
