Faith is only a five-letter word yet it’s so powerful! Why do we find it so hard to put our complete trust and faith in God in ALL circumstances? That being said, if we aren’t trusting God in difficult times we’re setting ourselves up for failure!

How do you Trust God in Difficult Times?

It seems lately all I see are the never-ending issues surrounding my numerous autoimmune disorders with no light at the end of the tunnel. Trusting God in difficult times such as these can seem daunting.

I have such a lack of trusting God is who he says he is sometimes. Satan will distract our minds and has us questioning all kinds of things that we know aren’t true.

Why do we do this to ourselves time and time again? I don’t know about you but if I do NOT fight these feelings it can set you on the path to depression. The answer is we are human we are flawed and we will stay flawed on this side of Eternity.

The Help You Need To Fight Depression

1. Trust God Regardless of what you can see

Even When You Don’t Understand God’s purposes for your life go to the never-ending unfailing wide open arms of our Heavenly Father and pour your heart out to Him! We must make a choice to trust God wholeheartedly in the hard times! Yes, even if the circumstances do NOT change.

2. Stand Strong

You see, with all the health issues I deal with I feel as if I’m always under spiritual warfare. In my weakest moments, I forget at times, for a few short minutes who my comforter is. I forget to look up to the one I should cry out to for help.

As followers of Jesus Christ, trusting God in difficult times should be easier, right? But God wants us to trust Him at ALL times, even when they’re hard.

Do you ever feel that way?

I suppose the best answer is that as humans, we are prideful and assume we have our situations under control so we feel as if we don’t need to call on God for help. Sweet friend, If you truly believe this, you’re already in trouble.

3. Look Up

You can NOT stay in a place where you allow doubt to take control of your mind. You can NOT allow your fears, doubts, and insecurities to doubt God’s goodness and protection over you.

This path will take us down a long dark road of depression if we let it. Instead, we must turn our eyes on Jesus, and lay our cares at the foot of the cross. We aren’t meant to carry our burdens alone though that’s exactly what we try to do.

We think God is too busy for us or He’s got more important issues to deal with. But Friends. he cares about YOU and Me too. The obvious question remains how can we choose to trust God in hard times?

4. Choose to Accept the Hard Times Even If it isn’t easy

I have come to a point in living with Autoimmune Disorders that if it’s God’s will for my health journey to remain the way they are now then so be it.

That being said, trusting God and His sovereignty throughout the journey is key! See y’all, if I allow myself to focus on the “disorder” instead of focusing on “living” I am the one missing out.

Our lives are NOT all about us and the issues we face while on this earth. We’re here for ONE purpose…Bringing Glory to God no matter what fears come our way.

5. Choose to Find the Positive side, Not Negative

Yes, I struggle immensely with my hearing and it can be extremely frustrating to me and my family who have to constantly repeat themselves but it could be so much worse.

It’s possible I could NOT hear at all and I’m so grateful for that. Not to mention working in oncology has taught me I can have it much worse than I do.

6. Choose to Give Your Fears to God in Difficult Times

One of my biggest fears is not being able to enjoy and play with my grandchildren. In all honesty, I have numerous days where I’m so dizzy and off-balance I can barely walk let alone do fun things with my grand joys.

Yet, I could NOT be able to work but I can still do both of these. You must face your fears and look for the positive out of negative situations.

7. Remember Non-Christians are watching how you handle what you’ve been dealt with

It’s all in how you view your circumstances. It is all about trusting God in difficult times. As Christians, people watch what we are dealt with in life, to see how we handle them.

I am by no means saying I handle them perfectly because I do NOT. But God CAN and WILL use US for HIS Glory.

8. Even if your circumstances never change Your Hope is in God alone

I Love a song by MercyMe, it’s called “Even If.” As I was driving home one day I had a “WOES ME” at that moment a song came on the radio and reminded me of exactly what I needed.

It says, I know you’re able, and I know you can save through the fire, with your mighty hand, but Even If you don’t, my hope is you alone. So when I’m feeling overwhelmed by life I must remember God is my refuge and strength.
