Trust and Faith


Faith and trust is necessary to have a personal relationship with God. Yet, how often we are afraid of what is happening, what might come, and even, what has happened in the past. How do we get to a position of faith and trust? Well, the first step is to make a decision that you want to trust God, to have faith in Him. We often think that faith is only by the grace of God, but we also have to decide that we want it and trust that He will provide it to us when we commit our lives to Him. We can pray for faith? We can! Yes, we can! A simple prayer when we are afraid is , "Please change my fear to faith." Keep praying it until you feel that peace, that knowing that God is near and the fear will melt away. When it comes back, and it will at times, say the little prayer again. God loves us and wants us to have a close relationship with Him. Here are some verses from His Word that tells us so.


Matthew 21:21-22

And Jesus answered them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and thrown into the sea,' it will happen. And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith."


Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.


Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
