Jesus calls all of us to trust him, but in the trenches of real life doing so can be hard. On hard days it can feel impossible. One of the best things we can do to build our trust in him is memorizing and meditating on verses that encourage trust. Here are 16 of our favorites:
In you, LORD my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame.
But I trust in you, LORD; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands.
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in humans. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You trust in God; trust also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
Keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.
