There are many verses in the Bible about trusting God. But let’s be honest with ourselves I think we all have trouble trusting God in at least one area of our life.
What are some of God’s promises to you when you place your trust in Him?
God will bless you.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
God will give you wisdom.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
God will keep you safe.
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
God will take care of you.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
God will encourage you through difficult times.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
These are just a few of God’s promises.
Why can you believe them? First of all, God cannot lie.
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
Because God wanted to make the unchanging nature of his purpose very clear to the heirs of what was promised, he confirmed it with an oath. God did this so that, by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us may be greatly encouraged. We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.
It is not just that God doesn’t lie, it is impossible for Him to do so because it would go against His divine nature.
Compare that to our enemy, the Devil, who Jesus refers to as the father of lies.
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
It is in the devil’s nature to lie. He can do nothing else.
Secondly, all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:20
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
Jesus Christ was completely faithful in his ministry even to the laying down of His life for us and now He faithfully intercedes on our behalf.
Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
So no matter the situation or the circumstances that you may be going through, investigate and test out His many promises to you. God cannot lie and He is faithful to fulfill His Word. You can trust Him.
