Walking by Faith: Bible Verses on Trusting in God – Part 1

Life is full of uncertainties, and even the most carefully laid plans can be disrupted by unforeseen events. Back in December 2019, as people made their New Year’s resolutions, the concept of COVID-19 wasn’t even on the radar. It was an unexpected twist that caught everyone off guard.

In moments of unpredictability and turmoil, it’s essential to hold onto the belief that God remains good, in control, and reliable, even when circumstances appear chaotic. Presented below are 21 reassuring reminders of this fundamental truth.

  1. God Has Foreknowledge of What Lies Ahead

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6, KJV)

This verse offers immense solace when confronting uncertainty or adversity in life. Your situation, or the circumstances surrounding you, may surpass your comprehension, but they do not evade God’s knowledge.

God comprehends the intricacies, timing, and reasons behind everything transpiring. When you find yourself in a quandary, unsure of what lies ahead, have faith in His wisdom. Abide by His principles and commandments, recognizing that as you pursue obedience, He is orchestrating the rest. “The LORD is my refuge and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise Him” (Psalm 28:7, NIV).

God observes every facet of your life, recognizing what He has shielded you from. He is your shelter, and you need not surrender to fear. Though it may not be effortless, you can experience joy and gratitude as you praise Him for this certainty, even amid challenging circumstances.

  1. The Unchanging Nature of Jesus

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. (Hebrews 13:8, KJV)

Jesus remains unwavering in His essence. His power and promises stand unchanged. He existed alongside God at the inception of creation. The same Christ who transformed lives and performed miracles in biblical times is the identical Christ who extends those same assurances to you today. You can place your trust in Him, for the commitments He made to His people in the Scriptures remain the very promises He extends to you in the present day.

  1. Embrace Courage Amidst Adversity

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord. (Psalm 112:7, KJV)

The psalmist emphasizes that the confidence of those who follow God is rooted in His character rather than the circumstances they encounter.

When confronted with the uncertainties of life, take solace in the One who possesses all-encompassing power and knowledge. God is unshaken by the unknowns. When your faith is anchored in Him, He can imbue you with the strength and resilience to confront whatever lies ahead.

  1. Find Courage in God’s Presence

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1:9, KJV)

This verse holds significant importance in the narrative of God’s people. After spending four decades in the wilderness, they stand on the threshold of the promised land, anticipating a formidable battle.

Regardless of the challenges you encounter, remember that God is perpetually with you. He does not require you to summon courage in your own strength. Take heart in the awareness of His unwavering presence and omnipotent support.

  1. Entrust Your Path to God

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. (Psalm 37:5, KJV)

You may find yourself in perplexing or uncertain circumstances, but God comprehends them fully. His track record, both in your life and throughout biblical history, is one of unwavering faithfulness. When you surrender your life to Him, you can have confidence that He will fulfill His promises. God is incapable of deception, so when He declares that He will intervene on your behalf, you can rely on His word.

  1. God’s Assuring Presence

 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (Isaiah 41:10, KJV)

God stands beside you, ready to bestow strength regardless of your circumstances. He does not pledge that you will be exempt from difficulties or fear. However, He assures you of His enduring presence and His capacity to guide you through adversity.

  1. God’s Faithfulness to His Word

For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. (Psalm 33:4, KJV)

Throughout history, the Bible attests to God’s love and reliability. Even amidst your trials, His faithfulness remains unwavering. You can confidently place your faith in His promises, for He has consistently fulfilled His word in every endeavor.

  1. Jesus: The Compassionate Shepherd

 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. (John 10:14, KJV)

A shepherd diligently tends to and safeguards the sheep under his care. Jesus, the Son of God, embodies the role of the Good Shepherd, and His followers are His cherished flock. There exists a singular God of the Universe who fashioned you, discerns your needs, and claims you as His own.

Jesus stands as the epitome of a faithful shepherd, one you can fully trust. He perpetually discerns what is best for you, even when it may not seem apparent. To follow Him faithfully, you must forge a personal connection by communicating with Him through prayer, studying the Bible, and nurturing fellowship with fellow disciples of Christ. By doing so, you will learn to distinguish His guiding voice from all others.

  1. God’s Providential Work for Your Benefit

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28, KJV)

God possesses a profound concern for your life and a divine purpose. His desire is for you to encounter Him through a relationship with Jesus, to love Him, and to extend that love to others while growing in Christlikeness. He promises that, regardless of the circumstances, be they favorable or challenging, He will orchestrate them all for the purpose of molding you into Christ’s image and securing your place in His kingdom. He possesses the power to mend all that is broken, continually laboring on behalf of those who love Him.

  1. God’s Care for His Creation

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? (Matthew 6:26-27, KJV)

God extends His care to all of His creation, including animals and plants (see verse 30). However, this passage underscores His particular concern for supplying your needs. Worrying about life’s essentials does not lead to their fulfillment. Instead, place your trust in a God who is deeply attentive to the specifics of your existence.
