The Bible says a lot about trusting God in difficult times. The Bible is full of stories of people going through trials and tribulations. Our faith is tested the most when we pass through difficulty and despair. It’s not about facing bad times but how we respond when we face them. Are we trusting God or our own abilities?
There are many Bible verses that reassure us of hope and strength in God when we turn over our selves to Him and trust Him completely.
Here are some of them that promise us of God’s help during difficult times.

18. Matthew 6:28-33
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
19. Romans 5:1-8
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
20. Isaiah 26:4
“Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”
