3 Examples of Trusting God When Times Are Hard

Here are some incredible biblical characters who trusted God in the midst of difficulty to inspire you.

When times are difficult it is easy to lose faith, but that is the exact thing we need to make it through. Trusting God through difficult times means we see what is happening through God’s eyes.

To see difficulty the way God does, we need Bible verses to help us with trusting God versus our own abilities and strength. Here are some incredible biblical characters who trusted God in the midst of difficulty to inspire you.

Trusting God when you feel alone

[14] At this they wept aloud again. Then Orpah kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her. [15] “Look,” said Naomi, “your sister-in-law is going back to her people and her gods. Go back with her.” [16] But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. [17] Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” [18] When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her.

Ruth 1:14-18 NIV

Trusting God when life is not how you pictured it

[1] So David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullam. Soon his brothers and all his other relatives joined him there. [2] Then others began coming-men who were in trouble or in debt or who were just discontented-until David was the captain of about 400 men.

1 Samuel 22: 1-2 NLT

Trusting God to act even when you’re afraid

How am I supposed to see the king? It’s known throughout the land, from the greatest of the king’s officials to the common folk who live in the provinces, that any person who approaches the king in the inner chamber without being invited is sentenced to death. That’s the law! There’s only one exception, and that’s if the king were to hold out the gold scepter to that person and spare his or her life. It’s been 30 days since the king last summoned me!

Esther 4:11 VOICE

“If you stay silent during this time, deliverance for the Jews will come from somewhere, but you, my child, and all of your father’s family will die. And who knows? Perhaps you have been made queen for such a time as this.”
