We as Christians are called to trust the Lord. This is one of the hardest things to do in my opinion.
I can read the Bible and learn everything about the God who created me but then…I need to trust Him with my life.
What Does the Bible Say about Trusting God?
Scriptures on trusting God make it very clear that we are to trust the Lord with our life. He created us and knew us before He formed us in the womb (Jeremiah 1:5).
He has a plan for us and will work everything out for our good if we walk according to His will (Romans 8:28). This means we can trust Him because He is in control.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
In order to walk with Jesus, we need to fully surrender our life to His will. We need to stop walking in our old ways and walk in faith.
When I accepted Jesus Christ into my life, I knew I couldn’t do it on my own. I knew I needed to repent because the road I was walking was bad for me.
The Holy Spirit filled me with the desire to be born again and start a new life trusting in Jesus.
