In today’s world,trusting God is a big issue.This blog post will teach you how to trust God in difficult times.
Learning how to trust God is not an automatic thing. Similarly,It is not something you can quickly develop in difficult times.
Trusting God is an attribute that comes with knowledge and experience of Gods ways.
Your ability to trust God is related to your daily walk with God.
For instance,you cannot randomly trust anybody you just met.
You need to have a close relationship with the person first.See the way the person handles things.
After a period of time,your trust in the person will develop.
HOW CAN YOU FULLY TRUST God?
I have been living with my husband for over 11 years.As a result,there are certain things I can trust my husband to do.
That is because of my long relationship with him.And as he continues to handle situations that arise in our relationship,I get to know him better.
Consequently, my trust in him increases.
The same goes with trusting God.For instance,you cannot trust God when you have not known his ways or walked with him.
Your ability to trust God lies in the times when he has delivered you from problems.
Or the times he has been with you through challenges.
To trust God, means to believe in his ability to do things.That means, you need to see Gods hand and power transform situations in your life.
And for God to do that,you need to Ask.
Your ability to ask, believe and receive is dependent on your walk with him.
Therefore,to fully trust God in difficult times,is a step by step process.
HOW CAN YOU TRUST GOD DAY BY DAY?
Our God is a 24-hour God.On the other hand, we will prefare him to be a God that provides monthly or yearly provisions.
We need to learn to trust God every day! Because that is what he wants.
For example, God wanted the Israelites to trust him daily for the manner in which he gave them as food (Exodus 16 vs 4-5

Similarly Mathew 6 vs 34 Jesus said:
