Trusting God to provide is a wonderful concept, and one that most Christians want to live out. However, when the Lord seems silent or even aloof to our circumstances, it doesn’t take long for our faith to waiver. If trust doesn’t come easy for you, here are a few ways to build it:
Recall God’s faithfulness:
How has God come through for you in the past? How has He made a way for you? By recalling God’s faithfulness, you are assuring yourself of His provision. You can trust Him, even when you can’t hear him.
Read the testimonies of others:
When you find your trust wavering, read the testimonies of others. There are amazing stories of faith and redemption that will inspire you and help you trust that God will work all things out for your good.
Remember His promises:
If you aren’t sure what God’s promises are, search the Scriptures for a few key promises you can hold on to. Hide the Word in your heart so that in times of trouble, you can easily recall His words of wisdom and comfort.
There will be times when you don’t hear God—even when you need Him most. But this doesn’t mean He is aloof to your circumstances. In times of silence, hold fast to His promises, trust in His provision, and spend more time listening. Here are a few extra resources to help you hear God’s voice in a noisy world:
