Trusting in God and Others
Trust is something that we all struggle with at one point or another in our life.
These Bible verses about trusting God will help you learn to trust in the Lord and in the process learn how you can trust other people more.
I have found that the issue of trust causes you to deal with issues in your life having to do with faith and surrender to the will of God.
When you have had your trust violated by things like divorce, broken relationships, marital infidelity, and people lying to you, it becomes very hard to trust again without understanding that ultimately our trust is in the Lord and not in people and as such, we place our faith in Him that when people break our trust, that it is ultimately in His plan to help us learn to love, forgive, and overcome the fear of being hurt again.
As you will see in these verses about trusting God, ultimately the only reliable person we can trust is Jesus Christ Himself. Our trust in Him is not in vain.
