30 Bible Verses About Trust – What Does The Bible Say About Trust?

Trust is a powerful subject in the Bible. The characters in the Bible faced situations of various magnitudes including war, health loss, hunger, uncertainty and more.

Regardless of the circumstance, the exhortation to trust in God in the Bible remains the same, even in situations such as the one in Hosea 10:13, when Assyrian enemies were approaching Israel, and the prophets were suggesting inaction while others were wanting to do otherwise.

As another great example of trusting in God, are the first Christians. After the advent of Christianity in the Roman Empire, when Roman Christians faced persecution, their heroic fortitude and trust in God is well-documented in history.

We can learn from the people in the Bible and be encouraged to trust God all the time.
