bible verses on trust

When Facing the Impossible, Trust God

When Facing the Impossible, Trust God

Mark 10:27Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

Let’s face it, life can get really tough. 

We all encounter challenges, problems, and difficulties that leave us feeling hopeless or helpless. 

Maybe it’s a health issue, financial strain, a rocky relationship, or something else entirely.  In those moments, it’s easy to wonder how we’ll ever overcome what feels like the impossible.

But here’s the good news: you’re not alone.  The Bible is filled with stories of people who faced seemingly insurmountable situations.  They battled giants, endured storms, and grappled with doubt and fear.  Yet, through it all, they discovered something powerful:  with God, nothing is impossible.

We Can’t Trust in Ourselves

Many of us instinctively turn to ourselves when facing major difficulties. 

We tend to rely on our own strength, wisdom, or abilities.  Maybe we place our hope in money, possessions, or the support of loved ones. 

While there’s nothing wrong with these things, they can’t be our ultimate source of trust. 

They’re ultimately unreliable, and they can fail us.

True Trust Lies With God

There is Someone, however, who will never fail you: God

  • He created you, knows you intimately, and has a plan for your life. 
  • He offers forgiveness, healing, and transformation. 
  • He guides, protects, provides, and empowers you. 
  • He is all-powerful, all-knowing, and ever-present. 
  • He is holy, loving, and faithful. 
  • He is the one who makes all things possible.

Trusting God Isn’t Always Easy

Trusting God completely takes surrender, obedience, and humility. 

It means letting go of control, your agendas, and your expectations.  It means following His will and relying on His promises.  It requires admitting your weaknesses and dependence on Him.

Yet, trusting God brings incredible rewards.  It brings peace, joy, and hope.  It brings freedom, security, and purpose.  It fosters growth, maturity, and a life that bears fruit.

Strengthen Your Trust in God

Trusting God isn’t something we do on our own.  Here are some ways to cultivate a deeper trust:

  • The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit lives within you, enabling you to trust God and obey His voice.
  • The Word of God: The Bible teaches you about God’s character and His faithfulness.
  • The People of God: The Christian community can encourage and support you in our faith journey.
  • God’s Grace: God’s grace covers you and sustains you through trials and temptations.
  • The Example of Jesus: Jesus perfectly trusted God, even to the point of death on a cross. He showed you how to trust God in all circumstances.

Trusting God Brings Hope

No matter what you’re facing today, remember that God is capable of anything.  He can do more than you can imagine, and He can work in His way and timing to bring about His glory and purpose.

Trust that God knows what’s best for you, and that His love for you is everlasting. 

Trust that He is working in and through you, and that He will never abandon you.  Trust in His faithfulness and His promises.  Trust Him, and expect great things from Him.
