Overview: In this post, learn the 7 reasons to trust God and therefore, improve your relationship with Him.
Why trust God? In a world filled with doubts, fears, and cynicism, it is not difficult to see why a lot of people have trust issues. More than ever, it is difficult to trust anyone.
But here’s the good news for you: you can ALWAYS trust in God. You can unconditionally trust Him with your life, decisions, and future.
That’s exactly what we are going to answer today. In this post, let me share with you 7 powerful and compelling reasons why it is important to trust God and have faith in Him.
Reason no. 1: God will give us everything that is good for us
Psalm 84:11 tells us:
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
This verse is clear that God will NEVER withhold anything that is good for us. So, if you prayed for something and God didn’t give it to you, He perfectly knows that it won’t be good for you. So, trust Him that He knows what’s best for you.
Thank God for the times when He said no to your prayers. It only means that He is setting you up for something way better than what you have asked from Him!
Reason no. 2: God sees the bigger picture
As humans, we don’t know everything. Our knowledge is just limited and thus, we can’t see the whole picture of our situation.
Thankfully, we can trust God because He can see the bigger picture. As we read in Isaiah 55:8-9:
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways HIGHER than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Though we are limited, God is not. Though we only know a few things, God knows everything.
In fact, we may only see the trees, but God sees the forest. We may only see the streets, but God can see the city. We may only see the beach, but God can see the ocean.
That’s how big God’s perspective is and compared to His, our perspective is infinitely limited.
So, why trust what you can’t see and understand? Trust in the Almighty, instead, for He perfectly knows the past, the present, and the future!
Reason no. 3: You can count on God’s word
Here’s something that you should always remember:
“God is not a man, that He should lie,
Nor a son of man, that He should repent.
Has He said, and will He not do?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good” (Numbers 23:19).
The same can be read in Titus 1:2 and Hebrews 6:18.
God is not like us. He is NOT capable of lying. Whatever He says, He will bring to pass. Whatever He commanded, it will happen. Whatever promise He gives, He delivers!
God is perfectly reliable. If He says He will do something, you can count on it — 100%!
Reason no. 4: God wants to give us His Kingdom
Do you know what gives God pleasure? What truly makes Him happy? It is this:
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
I hope you don’t simply read this verse, but to TRULY understand it as well. It is telling us that the Most High God would like to give us His Kingdom and that it gives Him pleasure to do so!
What does this mean and why is this important in relation to trusting God with your problems?
It is simply this: because God wants us to give His Kingdom, He will help you to get there!
He will provide everything that you need to be part of that Kingdom. That’s why He already made the ultimate sacrifice for all of us — to give His Son’s life to redeem us from our sins!
That is how much God wants us to be part of His Kingdom and Family.
God does not take pleasure in our sufferings. He is not happy when we sin and experience its fatal consequences. God is not happy to see the wicked perish.
When you go through trials and tribulations, you can be sure that it is not to stop you from reaching the Kingdom, but it is actually PREPARING you for the Kingdom.
So, when difficulties bring you down, you can always say, “In God we trust” because you know that God’s ultimate goal is for you to be in His Family.
Reason no. 5: God will not leave us nor forsake us
You probably have read this passage before:
“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for Yahweh your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
How many times have you read this passage and have really believed it? Well, you better believe it, my friend, because this is ABSOLUTELY true!
There should not be even a hint of doubt in your mind. God will never leave you nor forsake you and for that, you can trust God with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5-6). In this statement, God is making a double promise to us. He will not LEAVE us and He will not FORSAKE us.
Our Father will not bring us this far only to leave us. He will not call us just to simply leave us hanging in the air. He will not let you down.
Philippians 1:6 adds, “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ [Yahshua the Messiah].”
Reason no. 6: God’s way is perfect
Do you know why is it important to trust in God? It is because His way is perfect.
We read in Deuteronomy 32:4:
He is the Rock, His work is perfect;
For all His ways are justice,
A God of truth and without injustice;
Righteous and upright is He.
The word perfect here came from the Hebrew word “Tamiym.” Strong’s Dictionary defines this word synonymous with the word integrity and truth. It also means “without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincere, sound, without spot, undefiled, upright, whole.”
We can be trusting God in all situations because His way and work are perfect and you CAN’T improve something that is already perfect.
Wouldn’t you like that to have in your life? Wouldn’t you want to have God’s perfect work, will, and purpose to be fulfilled in you? If yes, then trust Him!
Reason no. 7: God loves you
If there’s one reason that you should trust God, it is this:
He loves you.
God is love and all that He does is out of love (I John 4:7-21). He is the very definition and embodiment of love.
Since God loves you, He will do everything to help you in times of your needs. You can trust Him always because He has your BEST interest in mind. He knows what’s best for you and He will give you the best — if you are willing to trust Him.
That’s why you can trust your life into God’s hands. You can trust Him with the outcome after doing your best. You can trust Him that He will rescue you from your darkest times and He will be there with you through the storms of life!
God’s love gives you the confidence and assurance that God will not let you down. He will always be there for us.Tweet
The love of the Almighty should be more than enough for you to trust Him.
Why trust God?
You have just read the important reasons why you should trust God and have faith in Him. In the end, our life is in God’s hand.
Stop trying to control everything. You will just stress yourself out. The best thing you can do is Let go and let God. Entrust and surrender everything to our Creator.
Whether God’s answer to your prayer is no, yes, or not now, trust Him. In times of uncertainty, it’s the best decision you’ll ever make.
Whether you understand what’s happening or not, trust God. Whether you are going through life’s toughest trouble or sailing smoothly through life, trust Him.
It is my sincerest desire that we all develop the unconditional trust in the living, loving, and faithful Father who is in Heaven.
