Everything in life comes with challenges. If you’re going through a difficult time right now, trust that God has a plan to help you through it and come out stronger on the other side. These Bible verses can help you trust God even when things aren’t fair: When life throws us curveballs, it can be hard to trust that God is at work in our lives. That doesn’t mean we won’t get hurt or feel betrayed by people we love, or that bad things won’t happen to us. But if we believe these verses about trusting God in the hard times, we will also know that He is with us and for us in everything we go through.
Trust God in the hard times
The best way to move through any hard situation is to trust that a loving and good God is in control. It may not be clear how a certain situation will play out because He has a higher purpose even when we can’t see it. His ways are not our ways, and He has a long-term perspective that we don’t always have. He has the whole world in His hands, and He loves each one of us deeply. When you’re going through a tough time, first seek God in prayer. Ask Him what you can do to bring His goodness and His healing into the situation. When we try to go it alone and don’t rely on God, we can easily get overwhelmed or give up. When we bring everything to God, He is faithful to help us and will also equip us with what we need in order to walk through our situation with peace and hope.
The Psalms: when things feel out of control
The Psalms are prayers that people have been using for thousands of years. While different Psalms are good for different situations, Psalm 46 is a great Psalm to pray when you feel like your life is spinning out of control. In this Psalm, the writer prays that God will bring order back to his life, that he will keep his heart from getting anxious, and that he will trust in God even when everything feels like it’s falling apart. You can also use Psalm 37 as a reminder that everything you need to live a full and abundant life is already with you. God has all the resources we need to handle whatever comes our way. The only thing we need to do is to take the time to seek Him and to trust that He is there for us.
Trusting God when you’re betrayed by people you trust
These are some of the hardest times to trust God, but also the times when we can grow the most. The Bible says that “we can grow much more from our failures than from our successes.” When you’re betrayed by someone you thought was a close friend or family member and you feel like you can’t trust anyone again, it can be hard to not give up on relationships. But the Bible has many verses that encourage us to trust God even when we’ve been hurt by the people we thought we could trust the most: – Psalm 25: Put your trust in God, not people. – Psalm 37: Do good to those who hate you. – Psalm 71: Trust that God will bring justice. – James 3: Be quick to believe good things about people.
When life doesn’t give you what you deserve
We often feel like life is giving us the short end of the stick when nothing seems to be going our way. When you feel like you deserve something more but you don’t get it, it can be hard to trust that God is at work in your situation. – Psalm 37: The world is not fair, but God is fair. – Psalm 73: Trust that God’s ways are higher than our ways. – Romans 8: Trust that all things work together for good. – James 1: Be quick to look for God’s hand in everything.
Trusting God when your dreams don’t come true
We all have dreams for our lives. When those dreams don’t come true, it can be hard to trust that God has a better plan for us. – Psalm 37: Don’t be upset that the wrong things happen to you. – Romans 8: Be quick to see God’s goodness in everything. – Ecclesiastes 3: Don’t be too upset that the wrong things happen to you. – James 1: Look for God’s goodness in everything.
When life throws us curveballs, it can be hard to trust that God is at work in our lives. That doesn’t mean we won’t get hurt or feel betrayed by people we love, or that bad things won’t happen to us. But if we believe these verses about trusting God in the hard times, we will also know that He is with us and for us in everything we go through.
