This topic is very personal to me and I can say now that I am growing in my trust towards God daily.
Trusting God means letting go and letting God have His way; completely relying on Him devoid of any fears whatsoever.
Recently, I have had to deal with fear regarding a particular situation in my life and this fear was beginning to overwhelm me. I would pray about the situation and after a while I would go back to being disturbed. Thankfully, I remembered the words of Jesus in Matthew 6:27 where He said that worrying does not increase one’s size in any way and I started praising. “All of my help” by Geoffrey Golden became a routine song for me anytime my mind started wandering and gradually, I regained my trust in God.
Humanly speaking, it is not easy to trust in God in extremely difficult situations; situations that are just mind-blowing and you can’t seem to comprehend them, however, God wants you to trust Him irrespective of whatever situation you find yourself in. One thing I tell myself is this, “Funmi you can’t do anything literally but God can”. When I say those words to myself, I feel peace within me and assurance that God will definitely step into that situation. Worrying does not solve anything trust me, it only makes matters worse. PS: I used to be a “Chief Worrier” if there’s any word like that.
Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us to trust in the Lord with all our heart and seek His will in all that we do. The Bible does not tell us to trust in Him with 1/2 or 1/3 of our hearts, it says all of our heart and that we should acknowledge Him in everything that we do. Don’t think that situation you are in is off-limits to God and there’s no talking to Him about it. Everything that concerns you concerns Him. Psalm 55:22 says that we should give our burdens to God and He will take care of us and will not permit the righteous to slip and fall. God cares for us much more than our minds can imagine and is with us in every step of the way.
In whatever situation you are in, don’t fret, God’s got you, trust in, pray and praise your way through for it will surely end up in praise.

Lord Jesus, I thank You for being my help all along. I realise that I can’t change this situation that I am in currently, but I know you can. I trust You to help me and I know that you will. Thank You Lord Jesus for I know You’ve answered for in Jesus Name I have prayed.
