Trusting God doesn’t come easy. We can’t see, touch, or hear His voice — at least not in the same way we do the humans in our life.

That’s where the experiences of others are helpful. When I see how God’s kept His word for others, it encourages me.

The Bible is the best source of those experiences. Spanning thousands of years and generations of humanity, the Bible testifies to God’s everlasting faithfulness. Quotes from people who’ve had more recent encounters with God also inspire me.

I’ve collected 21 of my favorite inspirational quotes about trusting in God, and I’m sharing them with you.
