Trust in God is an essential part of leading a fulfilling life. Yet it requires effort and dedication, just like any other relationship. In this article, we will explore six practical steps that can help you build and strengthen your trust in God. Whether it’s spending quality time together, reading the Bible, praying, exploring devotional books or seeking guidance from people who have a strong fellowship with God, these steps can provide you with the tools and insights you need to deepen your trust and achieve “Trust in God” success.

1. Together Time

The key to developing a trusting relationship with someone is to spend time together. The same is true when you spend time with God. Communion between just the two of you is essential to the trust that will lead to better health.

2. A Quiet Place

Do you have a favorite rocking chair, a secluded bench in the park down the street or a well-worn pew in your church? That may be the perfect meeting place for you and God. Or, for some, it may be in the middle of rush hour, with the car windows rolled up, the radio off and the world on hold. Never miss a chance to create a “quiet place” for you and God to talk.

3. Scripture

We all enjoy getting messages from loved ones and friends. These messages keep us connected to the people who are important in our lives. The Bible is God’s message to us. What better way to know God than to read the Bible? Reading the Bible will show us the true, trusting relationship that God is eager to share with us.

4. Prayer

It can happen anywhere, anytime, and it doesn’t depend upon your posture or words. Prayer is talk — honest talk, fearless talk, friend to friend.

5. Books

Take a trip to a Christian bookstore. Wander the aisles and look at everything, especially the books under the “Devotional Reading” sign. Choose three or four of the most interesting and take them to the “reading” chair at the back of the store. Scan a page or two out of each, then select one to buy. We can often see God through the words of other Christians who have devoted their lives to a strong fellowship with Him.

6. People

Are you involved in a faith community? Are you acquainted with people who seem close to God? Get to know these people. Ask questions. Listen. Follow their lead. They just may know the path!

By combining these six steps and dedicating time and effort to building a trusting relationship with God, you can experience a deeper sense of peace, fulfillment and purpose in life.
