Sometimes, you ask yourself, “why should I trust God”. There are many reasons to trust in God. You may want to trust God, but you not know how to develop trust in God. Trust is not built in a day. We learn how to trust God by walking with Jesus daily and receiving his words in our heart. Below are some bible verses that will nurture your trust in God in difficult circumstances.

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man (Psalm 118.8).
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof (Mathew 6.31-34).
The government or armed forces cannot protect a city from criminals, natural disasters, terrorists, accidents and murderers. Only God can keep a nation safe. Deadly war weapons or a ferocious and mighty army will not keep a nation safe.
