Trusting God

Bible verses about trusting God

You can trust God. Many of you are going through the biggest storm of your life, but I want you to know that you can really trust God. I’m not a motivational speaker. I’m not trying to be cliche with things that all Christians may say. I’m not telling you something that I haven’t experienced. There have been many times where I had to trust God.

25 Encouraging Bible Verses About Trusting God

I’ve been through the fire. I know how it is. You can trust Him. He is faithful. If you are going through a job loss I want you to know that I’ve been laid off before.

If you are going through financial troubles I want you to know that there was a time in my walk with Christ where I literally had nothing, but Christ. If you lost a loved one I want you to know that I have lost a loved one.

If you have ever been disappointed I want you to know that I’ve failed, I’ve made mistakes, and I’ve been disappointed many times. If you have a broken heart I want you to know that I know how it feels to have a broken heart. If you are going through situations where your name is being slandered I’ve been through that pain. I’ve been through the fire, but God has been faithful one situation after another.

There has never been a time when God didn’t provide for me. Never! I’ve seen God move even though for some situations it took a while. He was building in me a faith unlike any other. He’s been working in me through the many hard times. Why do we cast so much doubt on the power of the living God? Why?

Christian quotes about trusting God

“Sometimes God’s blessing are not in what He gives; but in what He takes away. He knows best, trust Him.”

“To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust him in the dark—that is faith.” Charles Spurgeon

“Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place.”

“God has perfect timing trust Him.”

“The more you trust God the more He amazes you.”

“Whatever is worrying you right now, forget about it. Take a deep breath and trust in God.”

“Faith is trusting God even when you don’t understand His plan.”

“If God wants a thing to succeed – you can’t mess it up. If He wants a thing to fail – you can’t save it. Rest and just be faithful.”

This website was built on trusting God.

Some websites are watered down, they add no commentary, and there is a lot of false things being preached online. God led me to make a website for His glory. I was working on the first website for a few months. I was doing everything in the flesh. I would rarely pray. I was doing everything on my own strength. The website was slowly growing, but then it totally flopped. I was working on it for a few more months, but it never recovered. I had to trash it.

I was so disappointed. “God I thought this was your will.” In my tears I would cry out and pray. Then, the next day I would cry out and pray. Then, one day God gave me a word. I was wrestling with God by my bedside and I said, “please Lord let me not be put to shame.” I remember it like it was yesterday. When I was done praying I saw the answer to my prayers in front of me on the computer screen.

I never looked up any verses about shame. I don’t know how it got there, but when I looked at my computer screen I saw Isaiah 54 “do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame.” I just prayed for it and the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes was a comforting message from the Lord. This was no coincidence. Don’t feel shame for something that glorifies God. Hold on to God’s promises even if it is not going as planned at the moment.

1. Isaiah 54:4 “Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.”

2. 2 Timothy 1:12 “For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.”

3. Psalm 25:3 “No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause.”

If God has told you to do something in prayer, then do it. You can trust Him.

When God rejected my first website what He was doing was working. He was building experience, He was building me, He was building my prayer life, He was teaching me, He was showing me that without Him I am nothing and I can do nothing. 

Faith Is Trusting In God Even When You Don't Understand

He wanted me to wrestle in prayer. Through this time I endured some big trials and some small trials that would test my faith.

Months later God would lead me to start a new site and He led me to the name Bible Reasons. This time I felt transformed in my prayer life and in my theology. This time I knew God intimately. I wasn’t just writing about something I haven’t been through. I’ve actually been through it so I can write about it.

One of my first articles was reasons why God allows trials. At the time I was going through a small trial. God has been faithful through it. I literally watched God make a way and lead me into different directions to reach my destination.

4. Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

5. Isaiah 43:19 “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

Through my trials I would get weary. Then, Satan comes and says, “it was just a coincidence.”

“You’re not growing. You have been in the same position for months. You’re not holy enough. You’re a hypocrite God doesn’t care about you. You messed up God’s plan.” God knew I was under heavy spiritual attack and He would encourage me daily. One day He made me focus on Job 42:2 “no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Then, God set my heart on Luke 1:37 in the NIV “For no word from God will ever fail.”

By faith I believed these words were for me. God was telling me there is no plan B you’re still in plan A. There is nothing that you can do to hinder God’s plan.

If God Wants A Thing To Succeed You Can't Mess It Up

No plan of God can be stopped. I would constantly keep on seeing 1:37 or 137 everywhere I went or everywhere I turned as a reminder that God is going to be faithful. Hold on! You can trust God. I won’t boast in self or in a ministry because I am nothing and anything I do is nothing without God.

I will say that God’s name is being gloried. God has been faithful. God made a way. God gets all the glory. It took a while in my impatient standards, but God never broke His promise to me. Sometimes when I look back at the journey throughout the years all I can say is, “wow! My God is glorious!” Don’t listen to Satan.

6. Luke 1:37 “For no word from God will ever fail.”

7. Job 42:2 “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”

8. Genesis 28:15 “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

Whatever is bothering you or whatever you have lost God is able to restore.

I got fired from a job that I hated, but God ended up giving me a job that I love. I lost one thing, but through that loss I was restored an even greater blessing. God is able to give you double of what you have lost. I’m not preaching the false prosperity gospel.

I’m not saying that God wants to make you rich, give you a big house, or give you good health. However, many times God does bless people with more than their needs and He does restore. Praise God for these things. God does bless people financially.

God does heal people physically. God does fix marriages. Many times God gives more than what is expected. God is able! We must never forget though it is by His mercy and His grace. We deserve nothing and everything is for His glory.

9. Joel 2:25 “I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you.”

10. 2 Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

11. Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.”

12. Deuteronomy 30:3-4 “and when you and your children return to the LORD your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you. Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the LORD your God will gather you and bring you back.”

What does the Bible say about trusting God?

Don’t lean on your own understanding. Satan will try to send you confusion and temptation in tough times. Stop trying to figure out why and trust in the Lord. Don’t listen to all those voices in your head, but instead trust in the Lord.

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart

Look at Proverbs 3:5-7. This verse says to trust in the Lord with all your heart. It doesn’t say to trust in yourself. It doesn’t say try to figure everything out.

Acknowledge God in everything you do. Acknowledge Him in your prayers and in every direction of your life and God will be faithful to lead you on the right path. Verse 7 is a great verse. Fear God and turn from evil. When you stop trusting in God and you start leaning onto your own understanding you start making bad decisions. For example, you’re in a financial crises so instead of trusting in God you lie on your taxes.

God hasn’t provided you with a spouse yet so you take matters into your own hands and seek an unbeliever. This is a time to just trust. The victory doesn’t come by doing things in this flesh. It comes by trusting in the Lord.

13. Proverbs 3:5-7 “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 your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”

14. Psalm 62:8 “Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”

Some people wonder why are they in difficult situations.

“Where is God?” God is here, but you need experience. If I have a problem I’m not going to want to go to someone who has never been through what I’ve been through. I’m going to someone who has actually lived it. I’m going to someone with experience. You can trust God. Nothing that you go through is meaningless. It is doing something.

15. 2 Corinthians 1:4-5 “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ.”

Many people have said that, “God has abandoned me.”

He never abandoned you. No, you have given up! Just because you are going through hard times does not mean that He has abandoned you. That doesn’t mean that He doesn’t hear you. Sometimes you have to wrestle with God for 5 years.

There are some prayers that I had to wrestle with God for 3 years before He answered. You have to fight in prayer. It is not God who quits. It is us who quit and give up. Sometimes God answers in 2 days. Sometimes God answers in 2 years.

Some of you have been praying for that one unsaved family member for 10 years. Continue to wrestle! He is faithful. Nothing is impossible for Him. “I will not let you go until you answer me!” We need to be like Jacob and wrestle with God until we die. Blessed are those who wait on the Lord.

16. Genesis 32:26-29 “Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” The man asked him, “What is your name?” “Jacob,” he answered. Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.” Jacob said, “Please tell me your name.” But he replied, “Why do you ask my name?” Then he blessed him there.”

17. Psalm 9:10 “And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.”

18. Psalm 27:13-14 “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

19. Lamentations 3:24-25 “I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.”

20. Job 13:15 “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.”

The sin that grieves God’s heart the most is doubt.

Some of you believe that God will answer, but because of Satan and sin there is a little unbelief and that is OK. Sometimes I have to pray, “Lord I believe, but help my unbelief.”

21. Mark 9:23-24 “And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”

Just recently my prayers got answered to something I have been coming to God about for a long time.

I thought to myself what a victory, but then I stumbled upon a roadblock. It was no coincidence. Why would this happen when my prayers just got answered? God told me to trust Him and He brought me to John 13:7, “you don’t realize now, but you will understand later.”

God brought me to a verse that had the numbers 137 just like in Luke 1:37. A few weeks later God gave me an even greater blessing within my trial. I realized I was going in the wrong direction. God put the roadblock so I would take a different route. If He didn’t put the roadblock I would have remained on the same path and I wouldn’t have made the necessary turns.

Once again this recently happened and this is one of the greatest victories in my life. Sometimes things you go through now are leading you to a future blessing. My trial was a true blessing in disguise. Glory to God! Allow God to work out your situation. One of the greatest blessings is to see firsthand how God works everything together. Enjoy your trial. Don’t waste it.

22. John 13:7 “Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

23. Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Hold on to the righteousness of Christ. Don’t seek to make your own.

Don’t think God has not made a way because you are not godly enough. We all have done that. It’s because I’m struggling in this area, it’s because I am struggling with these desires. No. Be still and trust in the Lord. Allow Him to calm the storm in your heart and just trust. God is in control. Stop doubting God’s great love for you.

24. Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”

This is important. God says, “you can trust Me I promise to provide, but you must seek Me first above all.”

This is a promise for those who have a passion for the Lord and His Kingdom. This is a promise for those who seek to glorify God above all. This is a promise for those who struggle with such a thing. This is a promise for those who are going to wrestle with God no matter what it takes.

This is not a promise for those who want to glorify self, who want to seek riches, who want to be well known, who want to have a big ministry. This promise is for the Lord and His glory and if your heart is for that, then you can trust that God will fulfill this promise.

25. Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

If you’re struggling with trusting God you have to get to know the Lord in prayer. Be alone with Him and get to know Him intimately. Set your heart on knowing Him. Also, you have to get to know Him in His Word daily. You will notice that many godly men in Scripture were put in tougher situations than us, but God delivered them. God can fix anything. Readjust your spiritual life today! Write down your prayers in a prayer journal and write down every time God has answered a prayer as a reminder of His faithfulness.

    Thank you Fritz.

    This article/post whatever you call above has blessed and encouraged me in every way I needed.

    Thank you for always giving such an extensive explanation and reason as to why we can trust God.

    As always after reading I am back in the loving long arms of God and our Lord trusting him again.

    We so often slip and forget. But you here and this website always have me returning.

    Bless you ??

    • Kylie Jul 15, 2019, 6:03 pm

      Wow! Powerful message, I feel so encouraged. It’s like you are speaking to me, it’s everything I wanted to hear.
      Sometimes we go through very difficult situations and we feel alone as if God has forsaken us, so it’s always good to have someone to help remind us that He will never leave nor forsake us and that He is always there even though we can’t see or feel Him. Thanks a lot! God bless

  • Lorraine Jul 12, 2019, 12:28 am

    I truly needed these Scriptures about trusting God. I am having a problem with a company regarding my pension and I want get into more details but I have been frustrated so much today on the phone talking to them. As I checked my email : Bam this was bold printed message. Thanks I needed these encouraging words.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 12, 2019, 4:37 am

      Hey Lorraine,

      I’m glad that this message came at the perfect time.
      God has great timing. I encourage you to continue to pray.
      God knows your needs.

      – Fritz

    • Kelvin Aug 28, 2020, 2:45 pm

      Father God thank you for breathing in my direction, I really trust you and put you in first place, thank you for the word of encouragement.

    • Anna Grace Oct 12, 2020, 4:25 am

      Truly this is the most timley message ever because I attempted suicde before receiving Christ and I’ve been having so many trials and hardships I felt God was turning His back that the enemy was beginning to place those thoughts in my mind again.
      Your transparency had blessed me beyond measure!
      Our Father truly has lifted months and months , if not years of confusion off of me with your message. Blessings to everyone of you.
      God gave us this life because He knew we were strong enough to live it.

      • Chinaza Nov 6, 2020, 5:56 pm

        Remain strong and consistent with God.

  • Daniel Mabitine Jul 12, 2019, 12:35 am

    Thank you so much for this encouragement. I’m currently learning how to trust God in my storms. God bless you.

  • Patsy Tampke Jul 12, 2019, 12:36 am

    I received a blessing this evening by your Bible Reasons website delivered by God.
    After reading this article I made a realization that God cannot control our lives if we do not give Him control! The more control you give to the Lord the more blessings and grace we receive. At 65 years of age and divorced twice and little or no assets I never imagined I would be here in my life.
    I know not what my future has for me, but I know who has control.

    God’s blessings always,

  • Teshia Jul 12, 2019, 1:07 am

    I was just crying out in prayer how my children are breaking my heart with their constant confusion. This message spoke to my heart, and assured me with God’s words to trust Him.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 12, 2019, 4:27 am

      Hey Teshia,

      Thank you for stopping by. Always remember that God hears you.
      He hears the noise of your heart and He cares deeply about what you are going through.
      Remember how Hannah was weeping before the Lord and He heard her and answered her.
      Don’t be afraid. He is moving. I’m thrilled that this post has blessed you.

  • David H Jul 12, 2019, 3:49 am

    A very timely email. I’m under trial after trial – and sustained spiritual attack. More than annoying. I needed reminding to trust God. When I have trusted Him in the past He has never failed me. Thank you kindly Fritz – and thank you God for loving me and for Jesus and your Holy Spirit. Praise The Lord 🙂

    • Fritz Chery Jul 12, 2019, 4:16 am

      Hey David,

      God’s faithfulness is huge in our trust in Him.
      Even though things have gotten hard in the past, He has never forsaken us.
      Time and time again, God has always come through and He has always made a way.

    Hi Fritz,

    I have been struggling all my life on how to trust God, but thank you that I came to know that in my struggles, God is always just and true.

    Thanks and God bless your heart.

  • Jane Jul 12, 2019, 5:11 am

    I didn’t get accepted into any University, unlike my sister and it really hurt me because I was really seeking God’s face and I felt like she (my sister) got accepted without struggle. I’ve felt shame and disappointment for months but this message made me realize that I was wrong to turn away from God. He still loves me and wants the very best for me. He has a plan. I just need to ‘wrestle’ for it and keep praying. God bless you for this uplifting message.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 13, 2019, 6:48 pm

      Hey Jane,

      One of my favorite quotes is “Disappointments are God’s appointments.”
      The things that we may see as disappointments are God’s hands at work.
      We may not see it now but God is guiding us and He is helping us to better trust in Him.
      He does love you and is moving in your life. Continually pray for His loving guidance.

      – Fritz

    • Cherry Webster Nov 10, 2020, 7:19 pm

      God bless you. Just because you didn’t get accepted yet, maybe it’s not your time yet. Because God have a better plans for you, sometimes we can move too fast and miss our plans that God have set aside for us. So hold on and keep trusting Him because when the time comes it will be bigger plans that you might not be able to handle so again keep holding on to His hand my friend. And may God continue to bless you. It will come and while you waiting, keep on trusting Him. Amen

  • Regina S. Jul 12, 2019, 6:32 am

    I Trust in God always.
    He is my Savior and my steadfast Father.
    God is praiseworthy.
    His presence is eternal love.
    In His precious name I pray.

  • Abotiyuure Safrica Akolbire Jul 12, 2019, 6:42 am

    Trusting God is a real Medication to all Christians. Not trusting God will never add any meaningful and positive things in one’s life but it rather demotes those who doubt. I always get some Inspiration from Matthew. 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. ” Thanks to you for your time and encouragement.

  • Henry Iwunze Jul 12, 2019, 7:21 am

    Your message has truly helped me this morning.
    Faith is what I struggle with. I always want to do it my way or by my own strength, but your writeup along with these Scriptures has changed my mindset. God is faithful and the only way out of any trouble.
    Thanks and God bless you and your ministry

  • Hiram Moore Jul 12, 2019, 10:06 am

    Thank you so much for your encouragement. I’m truly grateful for it. I’m going through some trying times right now and although I know God is faithful I get discouraged at times. Please pray with me on this, and once again thank you so much.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 13, 2019, 6:10 pm

      Hey Hiram,

      It’s so easy to get discouraged in the midst of our trials.
      One thing that helped me with my discouragement was to stop trusting the situation that I was in.
      The Lord reminded me that He is in control.
      Sometimes we need to be still before the Lord so we can listen to Him speak truth in our lives.
      I will definitely be praying for you.

      – Fritz

  • Lesley Culbert Jul 12, 2019, 10:17 am

    I saw you wrote this article a few months ago. However, it came up in my mailbox today, a day where a trial was set before me and I was thinking to myself why must this happen, has God forgotten me. I’ve not been faithful to the Lord for a few weeks now. I’ve been neglecting my time in His Word and prayer, taking my blessings for granted. Thanking the Lord that He is calling me back and knowing I can still call and trust the Lord Almighty

    • Fritz Chery Jul 12, 2019, 8:26 pm

      Hey Lesley,

      Thanks for your openness. I’m glad that you received this message at the right time. If we’re honest no one is 100% faithful to God. Though we try to be we fall short. However, we can have confidence that God is not like us. He remains faithful. 2 Timothy 2:13 “if we are faithless, he remains faithful.” God’s love is unconditional and that is why we can trust Him. God hasn’t forgotten you. I encourage you to stay in the Word. That is how God is going to speak to you. Also, it’s going to remind you of the God that you serve. If He was faithful then, you can trust that He will be faithful now. He will not abandon you. Continually cry out for more of His presence as well. Seek His face in prayer day and night.

      – Fritz

  • Michelle Jul 12, 2019, 11:05 am

    Thank you for the message – it really came at a time where I’m facing a number of trials and I’ve been crying to God why, but now I’m comforted and all I need to do is to just trust Him.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 12, 2019, 8:12 pm

      Hey Michelle,

      The great thing about our God is that, not only does He see our tears but He collects them as well. Psalm 56:8 “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”

      He knows and intimately understands what you are going through. He will prove to be faithful in the end. Just as Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses.”

      Continually seek His face and allow Him to comfort you.

      – Fritz

  • Clayton Travis Jul 12, 2019, 2:59 pm

    Thanks foe encouraging scriptures & truth! I am unable to share with you my position or condition, probably more self pity & besieged by fear & doubt. Never felt so alone, broke, and helpless to change. It’s as if I’m mentally lost(reprobate mind?)
    Yet I know my redeemer the Lord Jesus lives and will rescue me.

  • Rebecca Jul 13, 2019, 6:39 am

    God directed me to this message. When I was in the shop I checked my emails and found it. I am currently going through challenges in my work and my finances and feel like giving up. This message reminded me that am not alone in this, He is doing a new thing. I just need to trust Him. Thank you Lord.

    • Fritz Chery Jul 13, 2019, 5:44 pm

      Hey Rebecca,

      Though we all may go through hard times, God will always provide for His children. We may not see how He is going to provide, but God always makes a way.

      He knows how to deliver you from what you are going through. I’ve been in tough financial situations and I can honestly say that He always remained faithful.

      Philippians 4:19 “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

      Psalm 37:25 “I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.”

  • Kathy Farnum Jul 13, 2019, 2:48 pm

    This very lesson on trusting God was exactly what I needed and what I was praying about this morning and in the middle of the night. Praise God!

  • Obari Sunday Jul 14, 2019, 6:46 am

    It is God working and solving problems through you. I was heavy but now relieved by the words of God through you.

  • Wanda Jul 14, 2019, 4:20 pm

    Thank you for such a wonderful message. I am going through so much right now that I have questioned God’s presence in my circumstances and I can’t take it any more. I am really at the bottom and have felt nothing but anger, shame, and doubt. I didn’t care to hear anyone else preach to me or tell me how good God is but God wanted me to see your message. I have read it several times and I’m writing the verses down. I am desperately trying to trust God in my mess and your message has given me great hope. Thanks and God bless you!

    • Fritz Chery Jul 15, 2019, 6:08 pm

      Hey Wanda,

      I’m glad that I could be used of the Lord to help you. In my own personal worship I have been going through Genesis, specifically the story of Jospeh. Even though Joseph was sold into slavery God never left his side. Genesis 39:2 “The LORD was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master.” Sometimes our trials are bringing about something greater. They do not mean that God is not near. God sees your pain and your fears. He hasn’t left you. I encourage you to get alone with Him and open up about your doubts. He knows how to help you.

    Thank you for this article. I really value the in depth descriptions and going into the deeper meanings of things. I have a difficult time trusting God, as it seems when things work out for the “best”, I am the one who gets hurt. I have been through so many losses, rejections, and painful disappointments, especially lately, and all one after another. I want to want to trust God and believe in His goodness. I just have a few questions regarding trust. What does trust feel like? Does trust have anything to do with feelings? Can a person be trusting in God and following His plan, but still feel scared? What if that person has Depression and Anxiety disorders? What will trust be like for that person? Thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully respond to this.

      Hey Rachel,

      Thank you so much for commenting. You are not alone in this and you have asked some great questions. To trust God is to put your confidence in Him because you know He’s a safe place. Our trust is based on faith in God’s promises. When we trust Him we feel secure although sometimes it’s a struggle. We know that in the end He is faithful. To trust in God is to know that you are loved and cared for. You know that if you are vulnerable with Him that He won’t reject you.

      Trust feels like feeling at home. You know that you’re in a safe place around people who love you and have your best interests in mind. Many men and women in Scripture trusted God but were still afraid. That is why God was continually encouraging His people and reminding them that He is by their side by saying, “Do not be afraid.” He said that because He saw they were afraid so He encouraged them.

      When it comes to depression and anxiety many people struggle with these things. I can often get anxious myself. Even the most mature Christians can struggle with this. Those who struggle with this may struggle with trusting the Lord. However, God still deeply loves the struggling individual. This should give the believer great comfort that they are not alone in this. Believers have been redeemed by the blood of Christ. Through Jesus we are being renewed daily. We have a God who is helping us in our struggle. He is continually drawing us towards Himself and reminding us of who we are in Christ, which gives us confidence.

    I don’t know when or how I got signed up for this website, but to the Most High God be the glory!!!! I use my spare time and read your articles Fritz. I truly truly thank God for giving you His Word to pass on to us, His sheep, who sometimes are lost. This message has been more than a blessing and a serious eye opener! It made me realize that God is ALWAYS faithful to His promises and that He’ll never leave me nor forsake me. It’s me who oftentimes give up on God and not the other way around. I thank you for this on time, never stale or late message. Blessings!

      Hey Rhaya,

      Thanks for taking the time to write this encouraging comment.
      I really appreciate it and I’m glad that the Lord has used this article to help you with what you are going through.
      I get discouraged at times as well but even in my discouragement God remains faithful.
      Not only is He faithful to His Word, but He is faithful to you and He knows you intimately.
      God’s love for us is something that is hard to wrap our minds around. His love for us is why we can be confident in Him.

    I am greatly thankful to God for this website and the work He is doing in raising a generation that trusts Him even in the midst of the fires of life. Thanks Fritz for accepting to be a vessel that can be used to deliver such messages to God’s children. It takes trusting God to get out of a difficult situation.

    Dear Fritz,

    Your website came to me just as I was
    searching for a verse about trusting in God’s plan even if we don’t understand it. I am currently dealing with a broken heart (which is not the first) and I have been asking God why did it happen to me again. Why did I allow myself to be hurt again despite having been hurt by a long-term relationship that I thought I have been healed from. I have been asking God for comfort through my pain and disappointment about myself that I do not seem to be learning my lessons. As I was praying and talking this morning, asking for Him to speak to me and comfort me through my tears, Matthew 6:33 came like a spring, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” It drove me to tears but at the same time, revealed to me a wisdom. I have also been reflecting on Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

    I have been struggling in finding someone to fill the hole in my heart and I have made mistakes and been hurt because men are fallible and this recent heartbreak is telling me to give my heart a rest but instead let my heart be with Jesus. And it is such a comforting realization to feel so loved by the God who is there no matter what. And so my prayer now is for me to develop a relationship with Him and seek His kingdom first and the rest will follow. Jesus is Love.

    What’s up Fritz.
    Very inspirational and the Lord instills in me the Spirit of Gratitude for leading me to your website. And I truly desire Him to use this anointed website to encourage my friends and family to persevere as I have been. I realize that there are many people that are going through many woes, but I can’t wait ’til the Lord leads them to this website, to help them out. So God can get all the glory He so rightly deserves. Amen

    Wow! This is a wonderful article! I just finished crying out my heart to God in prayer and He led me to read this article. I’m so encouraged and strengthened by it. God bless you.

    I was looking up how to trust God, to reinforce my faith and keep doubt out. I was in a test. Just found this site when I googled. Thanks so much for this information and Reinforcement of my faith to trust God no matter how the situation looks. Bless you ?

  • Gayle Nealis Feb 12, 2020, 7:40 pm

    I am so blessed God led me to this website! It’s been such a help with everything I am being bombarded with in my life. Not long after I signed up to get emails , I felt God’s comfort and peace come over me as I was going through “Trusting God”. I believe I was being prayed for (around 10 am central time). I am having trouble with some people who I should have trust in, please pray that their deception will become known and that I put my full trust that God’s well aware of what’s going on and He is in control. And last pray that when I step away from studying God’s word, that I won’t let the doubts that pop into my head to take control and cause fear.
