In this world it can be hard to find things or people to put our trust in… but in God, trust is made easy.
Join us as we explore the Scripture’s truth of the God in whom we can safely put our trust!
How Can We Trust?
As we draw nearer and nearer to the return of Yeshua, it is true that things will grow darker and that what, or who, we can put our trust in will diminish. Yet, in our King of kings, not only will the light we see grow brighter, but the firmness of our trust in Him can become unshakable!
In recent years it has been hard to accept this trust… but we need to.
- Because, just like God protected Noah by warning him of the times ahead, He will protect us.
- Because, just like God made covenant with Abraham in order to bless him and his children, He will draw us into that same covenant and bless us and our children.
- Because, just like God revived Lazarus and allowed him new purpose, He will revive us and propel us into our God-given purpose.
Over and over again we see that God has done amazing things for those who put their trust in Him.
Over and over again we see that God has poured out His love on His children.
God has more than enough strength, capacity, love, truth, goodness, ability, honesty… to allow us to prosper and thrive in our calling. To see us through every circumstance.
He is ready to pour out such a blessing that we will be beautifully overwhelmed!
Are we ready to receive it? Are we willing to fix our eyes on Him and not on our circumstances?
Back It Up with Scripture!
It is easy to say that God can be trusted. It is easy to make claims of His goodness. But we need something deeper… we need His words and promises. We need to read them, speak them, and stand on them. And in that way, create change within us; in our very thinking and our actions.
Scripture is living and active. It cuts through the lies and confusion that surround us and tells us who God is—because who He was, is who He is! (See Hebrews 4:11-13, Hebrews 13:8, 1 Kings 8:56, Matthew 5:18, Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:6, Ecclesiastes 3:14-15, and Revelation 22:18-19.)
“Jesus, the Anointed One, is always the same—yesterday, today, and forever.”
—Hebrews 13:8 (TPT)
There is trust-building scripture surrounding God’s interactions with His children… as with Noah and Abraham, or with Esther and Peter. And in their life stories, they teach us about God; what relationship and trust in Him look like. They demonstrate what is expected of us and what we can expect from God.
We can see God’s faithfulness through their lives. We can see the blessings and protection that walking out trust in Him bring! And while we could fall into a false belief that He somehow will not do the same for us, or that we are somehow inferior… God does not change, and His love for each of us is beyond our understanding.
Scriptures to Get Started
So then, what scriptures can we memorize or stand on daily which will build our trust in God?
While there are more scriptures ready to build our trust than we can include here, these are an excellent starting place on your journey of trust:

- “I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.’”—Psalm 91:2
In addition to all of these, there are many chapters in the Scripture that can build trust in God… and while not a comprehensive list, these scriptures are a good place to start:
- 2 Samuel 22
- Psalm 103
- Psalm 11
- Psalm 56
Remember, these are just a few of the chapters in God’s Word that can be used to build trust and discover more about who God is. From scriptures that speak of how God loved and blessed those who trusted in Him, to scriptures that remind us of God’s unfailing mercy and love… there is so much more that we can explore!
And our trust in Him and the breakthrough that brings… they are imparted!
The time has come to renew our trust in God. To stand, to stand, and then to stand…
Because, in doing so, God’s Kingdom is brought to earth.
We receive new life.
We experience what God desires and planned; perfect and full of love.
Are YOU ready to enter into a new season of trust?
