How To Trust In God-The Lord Reigns

How can we build our trust and faith in God? Even the disciples who walked with Jesus had difficulty trusting God, and they had seen Jesus perform mighty miracles.

It’s been my experience that the more I read God’s word, pray and seek to know him, the easier it is to trust the Lord. Jesus reveals himself when we seek the Lord first in our lives.

This whole thing works like a close friendship. It takes time to develop a solid friendship and know that you can trust someone. The same applies to having a relationship with God.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

The more he reveals himself to us, the easier it is to trust him. When we have a few supernatural events occur that only God could have done, then it becomes easier to have faith during rough times.

Once a few prayers are answered, we realize that God is listening.

Basically, it all comes down to just making a decision to put our lives into God’s hands and trust that the Lord is working things out. It’s just a split second decision to believe or not believe that the Lord reigns.
