Tag: Trusting God

Trusting God has to be one of the most difficult things to learn to do as a believer. We’re not wired to blindly put our faith in something so seemingly intangible. However, as we study Scripture we find a good and loving God who seeks to have deep and intimate relationships with all of us. Once we get to know Him for who He really is, trusting God is a lot easier!

Psalm 37: How to Trust God in Difficult Times featured image

After facing an intimate betrayal, or any other trial for that matter, we all have to figure out how to trust God in difficult times. We’re tempted to believe that when life is hard it’s somehow an indication that God has abandoned us, or that He is untrustworthy. But it is a lie. In times like these, passages like Psalm 37 offer encouragement, hope, and a wonderful model around which we can build prayers to calm our anxious hearts. The Psalm 37 message teaches us to delight in the Lord, it reminds us of the ultimate fate of both the wicked and those who choose to follow God, it reassures us that the Lord is fighting for us, but most important, it shows us exactly how to trust God in difficult times.

Psalms 91 – How to Understand and Trust the Promises of God 

Psalms 91 - How to Understand and Trust the Promises of God

It is imperative to a life of victory that we learn how to properly understand and then trust the promises of God. I’ve told you before about the time I found myself so buried in despair it felt like God was a liar. My circumstances seemed to contradict passages like Psalms 91. I didn’t feel like God was protecting me. It felt like the evils He promised wouldn’t touch me were actually consuming me!
What I’ve learned in the years since that time is this: I have to allow God to give me a proper understanding of His promises. I need eyes to see and ears to hear what He’s teaching me. When Scripture seems to contradict reality, I have to first allow the Word of God to interpret the Word of God. Then, I have to choose to believe it. Whether it seems true or not.

It puts God in control!
