Top Bible Verses About Trusting God
As COVID-19 is still a pressing issue and concern around the world, it can be relatively easy to get caught up thinking about the uncertainty that it holds. Fear and anxiety can build up in our minds as we continue to wonder when this pandemic will end. Any feelings that we might have had of being in control are stripped away, which can leave us fearful of what is to come next. However, we do not have to fear because our Almighty King is in control. He is sovereign and He has a plan. God commands us to not be afraid, for He is God and He has ultimate control (Isaiah 41:10). Instead, He calls us to trust in Him and stand firm in our faith. When we trust in God, we have the power and strength to overcome our fear and anxiety through Him (Ephesians 6:10; Psalm 29:11).
Here are a few Bible verses that can help remind us to trust God in every situation no matter what:
