Actress Karen Timbol Shares 3 Tips on How to Trust God during Difficult Times

Are you going through a challenging season in life?

How do you remain unshaken when the struggle is very, very real?

It is easy to trust God when everything in life goes well. But when life takes an unexpected turn, you may find yourself struggling to put your hope in Him. 

To help you reflect this Holy Week, Tanikala presents Habang May Ngayon actress Karen Timbol suggests tips on how you can grow in your trust in God, even in difficult times:

1. Know God’s character

Who is God in your life? What are His plans for you? Do you believe that He is trustworthy, loving, sovereign, and kind?

It’s hard to trust someone you don’t knowThankfully, the Bible will help you discover who God is.

Once you get to know God’s character and ability through His Wordyou will know that He is fully able to deliver (Psalm 34:17). Knowing His unchanging character will help you trust in Him during changing times.

2. Build a personal relationship with God

Whatever it is that has you shaken today; whatever it is that does not go as you planned; whatever it is that makes you worried, frustrated, or even scared – you are faced with an important question: do you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ?

It’s not easy to go through trials, but a personal relationship with God as your Savior gives you a different perspective in life. As you pray constantly and persevere unwaveringly, you begin to trust that God is with you, and that He is in control.

And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20 NLT) 

3. Cling to God’s promises

Who is blessed according to the Bible? Those who keep God’s Word and seek Him with all their hearts.

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord. Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.” (Psalm 119:1-2 NIV)

During trying times, you can cling to this truth and many other things God promises in the BibleAllow God to remind you of who He is especially in difficult times.

Let His Word help you grow in faith and trust Him, even when, and especially when times are rough.
