It’s easy to trust God when everything is going right in our lives. We go about our days with little to no worry or care. But what about when things take a turn for the worse? When we find ourselves in the midst of a storm, it can be difficult to trust that God is still with us and hasn’t abandoned us. Here are a few tips on how to trust God even when things are tough.
Talk to God Honestly
The first step to trusting God is to talk to Him honestly about how you’re feeling. It’s okay to be angry, scared, or disappointed. Tell God exactly what you’re thinking and feeling, and ask Him for help. Be as specific as possible in your request. Then, listen for His response. He may not answer right away, but He will give you the peace and strength you need to get through whatever you’re facing.
Seek Out Community
Another way to maintain your trust in God is to seek out community. Find other people who are facing similar trials and share your experiences with them. Pray together and support each other through the storm. Knowing that you’re not alone in your struggle can make all the difference.
Read Scripture Daily
Finally, one of the best ways to keep your faith strong is to read Scripture every day. Find a Bible reading plan that works for you and stick with it. As you read, reflect on what God is saying to you through His Word. Apply His truth to your life and let it guide your steps.
When we find ourselves in the midst of a storm, it can be difficult to trust that God is still with us and hasn’t abandoned us. However, by talking to God honestly, seeking out community, and reading Scripture every day, we can maintain our trust in Him—even when things are tough.
