How to Trust and Seek God in Difficult Times


Life feels like an ever-changing adventure at times, but when things get tough it can be hard to find meaning in it all. But...finding meaning is not impossible; it just takes a bit of faith in the One who holds everything together.

If you don't think that God can bring good out of a bad situation then ask God for wisdom and strength. God will give us the grace we need if we look to Him in faith and dependence instead of taking matters into our own hands.

God always has our best interest at heart. He will guide us to make good decisions during hard times. God gives us wisdom & strength! "Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." - Psalm 30:5 NRSV God is always there when we count on Him; He never fails us!

A passage from Psalms 23:4 that I love says, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me..." How wonderful! God really does walk beside me in the times of uncertainty.

Is this easy to believe? Not always, but it is what we have to do if we want to step out into our futures while still believing that God loves us and has good plans for us.

Many Christians endure times of uncertainty. We don't know God's plans for our lives, and we can't completely comprehend what He will allow to come into our life. In the midst of this confusion, it is hard to trust that God has a plan at all.

During these times, you must remember what brought you out of uncertainty in the first place. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only thing that will bring you through any situation. Nothing else in your life can give you strength except Him. Remember, we do not stand alone when we trust God and it is possible for us to endure times of uncertainty because He has already overcome them on our behalf:

"For while we were still helpless, at the right time [we] died [to sin but] were made alive together with [Christ] - through [God's] grace." (Romans 5:6) "I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38-39)

Without God, we would have no hope. Everything around us becomes darkness because it does not shine with His light. All we see are the shadows and shapes of uncertainty. We do not know what tomorrow or next year will bring, but it doesn't matter as long as He is with us now.


We can be at peace because Jesus promises that He will give us the same peace which passeth all understanding."

"God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind" God is never too busy to listen to you! He answers prayer for healing physical bodies and broken hearts because He cares about every aspect of your life. God wants you to have an abundant life full of joy, peace, hope and love.

There is nothing that he cannot do, and there is no plan that He cannot accomplish. When uncertainty comes into your life, remember why you started serving Christ in the first place. Remember that without Him you would have no hope at all. And whatever difficulty or trial comes into your life, remember His example on the cross and trust that He will bring light out of darkness every single time.

This is why it is so important to trust God when we're going through tough times – it allows us the opportunity to see how much power He has, and gives us a chance to look back on everything later with a smile.

Trusting God doesn't mean we won't have struggles, but it helps us get through them all the same—it reminds us that He is in control of it all.

In times of uncertainty, whether you're dealing with betrayal from others or facing your own fears, remember that there is One who loves you and has good plans for you. Just keep walking alongside Him, because he will always be beside you – even when things are most uncertain!
