Some recommendations for when you are struggling.
♦ Get in the Bible. It will remind you of who God is and what He has done since the beginning of time. Seeing God worthy of trust in the life of Abraham, David, Esther, and Paul will encourage you to keep on trusting him. Reading truths about God will help you remember just who God is and what He is capable of.
♦ Read biographies of heroes of the faith. Read about Gladys Alward, Corrie Ten Boom, Darlene Rose, Richard Wurmbrand, Brother Andrew, Hudson Taylor and so many others! It will encourage your heart to see how God worked in their stories.
♦ Remember how God has already provided for you in the past. Think on and praise God for those “small” and “large” ways He’s shown Himself to you already. God was faithful and He still is faithful.
♦ Journal your trial and how God shows Himself to you so you have it to look back on.
♦ Hang scripture around your house to encourage your heart to make a choice to continue trusting, even when it’s hard. I have James 1:2-4, Isaiah 26:3, and Psalm 118:8 written on Post-It notes stuck to my computer monitor at work. Bible verses about trusting God or Bible verses about attributes of God or who we are in Christ are great places to start.
♦ Read over these Bible verses about trusting God. They show words of trust and hope spoken in the Bible, commands to trust, why we trust, and the results of trusting God.
Read the Bible verses about trusting God listed in this post, but also take time to open your Bible and read the passages surrounding the verses. Dig a little deeper. Use the scripture as a prayer to God.
