Should we trust in God? I believe that we most certainly should! In my own life I have experienced many powerful demonstrations of God’s trustworthy nature, and if you read through just a few of the testimonies from the home page then I’m sure that you saw that I’m not the only one. When we ask for God’s help, he delivers. He speaks, he provides, he heals, and he comforts. And when he does all of these things, he often does so, in such a way, that we know, that he has our best interests at heart.
But it isn’t just the testimonies of the church which help me to know that God is trustworthy. He also confirms it in his word over and over again. Indeed, there are so many instances of Bible verses about trusting God that we can be sure that we can trust him in all things.
Yes, the Bible is full of Scriptures on trusting God and I have included a selection of these below (NB: All scriptures have been taken from the World English Version).
