Trust in God. Never think that God’s delays are God’s denials. God always gives us everything we need for the job he has called for. Let’s use what we have and what we are to the fullest. Life will not always be smooth. Let us not get disheartened by the hindrances in life, rather let us go ahead encouraging ourselves.
When you confront struggles, place your trust in God. And remember, if God brings you to, He will bring you through it.
Have faith in God and Be patient
The important thing about trusting God is being persistent – “Be patient, you never know how God is going to use you. It may take a little more time to do those things you desire to do, but they will eventually get done..” Yes, everything happens according to the will of God. When you have trust in this, then every place, every moment, every event of your life begins to feel like heaven and you are convinced that what is happening is meant for you.

Trust in God – When you are facing problems
Rather than telling God how big your problems are…tell your problems how big your God is. Try doing this for a month or so and see the tremendous effect it has on you. For, trust in God is nothing but confidence in God who can do great things in your life, greater than you can ever imagine.
The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed fervently, asking God to rescue him. Every day he would scan the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect himself and to store his few possessions.
One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, with smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened, and everything was lost. Stunned with disbelief, he was plunged into grief and anger.

“God. How could you do this to me?” he cried.
Early the next day he was awakened by the sound of a ship approaching the island. It had come to rescue him.
“How did you know I was here?” asked the weary man of his rescuers.
“We saw your smoke signal,” they replied.
The lesson from this story is very clear: It’s easy to get discouraged when things are going badly, but never lose heart. God is always at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Therefore, the next time your little hut seems to be burning to the ground, it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.
Obey your God
And finally, “True success is obeying God,” says John Maxwell and he goes on to point out: “The secret to success: trust God, work God, help others, and be sincere.” How true! Doing little things with a strong desire to please God makes them really great. The following are the words of the gentle saint, Francis De Sales, who lived a passionate life for God and for others:
