Learning How To Trust God

Trusting God can sometimes be a difficult thing to do because we as humans have been taught that independence is something that we should all aim for and achieve therefore learning to dependant on someone goes against the nature that we have developed. In this post I want to establish two basic principles that will help you to learn how to trust in God because this is one of the foundations of the Christian faith. If you do not learn how to trust God then you won’t go very far at all as a Christian.

1.His Word

The bible says that faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. This means that the foundation of your faith is God’s word. If you have not heard what God has to say according to any situation that you are going through it will be very hard for you to trust God in the midst of your circumstance because you don’t know what’s on his mind. Find scriptures that deal with where you are in life right now and meditate on them, pray and see what God is saying. This is one solid way to build your faith and learn how to trust God!

2.Prayer

Many of us think that it is illegal to be honest with God. Often times this is because when we are honest with people they tend to react in a negative way so we just keep our thoughts and opinions to ourselves. Unfortunately some people do this with God as well. They think that God will be angry with them if they say “Jesus i’m having trouble trusting you right now” or “God I don’t believe you’ll do this in my life” and that’s really not the case. In the bible a man that needed his child to be healed said to Jesus “Help my unbelief” he wasn’t afraid to admit that he was struggling to believe God.

When you’re next praying speak to God about your trust issues and be real with him. Ask him to take away any doubts and fears and replace them with faith and peace.

Here’s a scripture I use all them time when I need God to do something in my life and I’m battling with my faith:

Philippians 4:6-7 AMP [6] Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. [7] And God’s peace shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace which transcends all understanding shall
