In this devotional, we’ll read Powerful Bible Verses about Trusting God and discover how to have faith and trust in Him no matter what comes our way.
The Power of Trusting God
We all face difficult situations in life. But the good news is the Word of God is full of scriptures to help us trust God through each obstacle in our pathway.
As we travel along life’s path, it may be hard to have complete trust in our Creator. After all, it’s human nature to have doubt and fear about what lies ahead.
But God’s way is not our way. His is a path that leads to the narrow gate of salvation. It’s the least traveled path so there might be a few bumps along the way. But by trusting in the Lord and His plan for your life you will receive the gift of grace and His helping hand for the amazing, sometimes crazy, ride we call life.
At His core, God’s character is love. He has promised to walk this path alongside of you and never leave you when the going gets tough. All because of His great love for you!

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”
And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.” “For with God nothing is impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.”
