God does not hate you. He adores you.
Realizing the depth of God’s love for us is crucial. Could you fathom sacrificing your own kid to atone for the transgressions of every human being on the planet? Imagine if these folks disliked you. But your love was so strong that you chose to give your child anyway?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Since He is ready to sacrifice His one and only Son so that we may have eternal life, it’s safe to say that you may put your whole confidence in the Lord even in the face of adversity. The only question is whether or not you actually will.
7 Principes For Trusting God’s Love
We may be confident in God’s love for us. If we believe that he does not, what should we do?
Continue to pray.
Prayer is the most effective way to get through difficult circumstances. Pray: “Father, I don’t understand what the future has for me, but I trust You. I’m trembling with fear, but I have faith that You’ll be with my loved ones and me through this ordeal.
Praying to God and having confidence that he will carry out what he has promised are necessary steps to trust him in difficult circumstances. God will keep His word and fulfill all of his promises. He is patiently awaiting your decision to put your confidence in Him. Why do we insist on clinging to the problems we have? It appears to be a kind of tug-of-war between God and us. God is in control of the situation.
However, how can He assist you if you refuse to let go? Not everything gets easier, but nothing gets impossible when you have faith in God. So pray. He won’t hear your request if you don’t seek his help.
Deepen your faith.
When hardships come, how do you keep your trust in God? You can work on your faith daily, and it’s easy to let it be. The first and most essential step in developing your faith is coming to know Jesus and putting your confidence in Him for your eternal destiny. Believe in God’s promise of salvation and accept it. Now is the time to go down on your knees and pray to Jesus Christ to rescue your soul.
One who has established a personal relationship with Jesus Christ has direct access to God the Father. Jesus Christ paid the price for your redemption by giving his life. God works in the lives of individuals who praise and pray to him, personally and on behalf of others. Follow these steps, and your confidence in God will grow.
Be Thankful for His Blessings
Keeping a daily thankfulness notebook is a wonderful practice to adopt if you haven’t previously done so. If you’re feeling down and depressed, it might help to keep a daily gratitude journal in which you record the things for which you are grateful. Many of your prayers have been answered, and you can see the results of those answers in your diary. It might help you appreciate the positive aspects of your life and serve as a handy reminder of the petitions granted.
You may look back on these and other granted pleas in your gratitude journal if you’re feeling anxious or your confidence in God is wavering. You’ll learn to trust that God will see you safely through any difficulty life throws your way.
How Important Is God To You?
God wants to have the utmost importance in our life. The Bible begins with this warning as its first commandment.
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3)
Take note of the lowercase G in that passage of Scripture. There is no need for a deity in the traditional sense, such as pagan gods. Anything you put ahead of the Lord is referred to as a “little god.” It might be your family, your career, or perhaps a fun pastime you like doing in your own time. When we put God at the forefront of our lives, we develop the kind of connection that enables us to rely completely on him even in the most difficult circumstances. You’ll see it when you try it.
Take The Righteous Path
Repentance for sin in your life is required for walking in devotion. Keep in mind that God cannot look on sin. It is what separates us from our Creator. For this reason, God allowed His Son, Jesus, to be crucified. When Jesus chose to be crucified to that tree on Calvary Mountain, His spilled blood on that cross paid for all humanity’s sins due.
Simply put, a sinner who does not repent drives a wedge between himself and God the Father. Therefore, frequent confession is essential. Most of us, perhaps once or twice a day, beg for mercy when we pray. However, you should beg forgiveness whenever you notice yourself disobeying. This helps you be loyal and responsible.
Let Go and Let God
You can’t put your faith in God and then refuse to let go of your difficulties. Imagine your struggle being placed in a box, and a bright red bow is placed on top of it. Then picture yourself giving that to Jesus. Once you’ve given Jesus your concern, you should stop worrying about it and let Him handle it.
Give the Lord control of the situation entirely. The moment you do, it is as if the bridge between God and you have been completely repaired.
Be Patient and Wait.
We all have trials in life that go on indefinitely. But to expect God to end everything with a wave of his hand because we pray is naive. I already indicated that the answer lies in whatever is most beneficial to us and whatever would give God the most praise. What this means is that whatever God wants to happen happens.
God’s timetable rarely coincides with our plans for our life. Struggles are where we develop the most as spiritual beings. Putting your faith in God even when things look bleak must become a habit. Troubled times always pass. Maintaining our resolve and confidence in the Lord will bring us more benefits and blessings hereafter.
The Best Way
Going to God’s promises is the best approach to learning to trust him in trying circumstances. The Bible is full of promises that show us how to have confidence in God even when things seem hopeless. He urges us not to fret, that if we pray, He will provide us an unshakable calm. Amid the conflict, He assures us, He is there with us. Plus, He’ll fortify and soothe us long after the battle.
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
