TRUST IN GOD (POEM)

By God’s grace, I composed and illustrated this poem to encourage you to, as the title says, trust in God.

Put your trust in God
Take comfort in His word
And when temptations come
You won’t be out of form


This is not something that can be done in a vacuum. You need to know what God has made available to you in His word, what the Bible often calls your “inheritance in Christ”. Then as you believe, you see it manifested in your life. And this is not a one-off thing. It’s something you do continuously.

One of those promises in God’s word is the grace to overcome evil. In Titus 2:11-14, the Bible says as follows:

11. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
12. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in the present age,
13. while we wait for the blessed hope- the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
14. who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good. (NIV)


When you internalise this, temptations that come your way will find you stronger than they are. You will resist and overcome. You will remain in right standing with God and reap other benefits of your salvation like healing, deliverance and guidance.

But it all comes through constant intake of God’s word and trusting Him to do as the word says. And He will!

    ‘One of those promises in God’s word is the grace to overcome evil.’ God would always be there to help us overcome evil as long as we keep him close to heart and follows his footpath.

    All the great men and women in the Bible exhibited such trust in God even when it’s so clear that the chances of getting the miracles done where at the 0% but they knew the secret of getting an answer from God which is trust. In our world today all we care about is the qucik response that we could get from God without knowing if for a truth that’s what he also wants for us and when the response are not forth coming we tend to deviate from God’s plans and purpose for our lives. Thank you for this article ma, it’s a great reminder that trusting God is not a one-off thing rather a continuous process.

    Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey. I love this chorus. It inspires me. Trust in God and move on. He never fails. Your situation cannot be an exception. Give us your grace to trust you Lord

  • Ozoguejiofor Uche Jacinta

    One with God is majority. Trusting HIM to help us in our times of need is Must. We have no choice. When trouble comes God sees and knows and he helps us . Having matured to this age I can categorically say that life is spiritual and without God I wouldn’t be here today. I TRUST HIM WITH ALL MY HEART AND HE HAS NEVER FAILED ME AND NEVER WILL. .

    As Christians our trust in God is all that God need. With that trust we are assured in Him that is Christ, that all that happens will definitely turn out to favour us. The inheritance talked about in this post simply lets us know of our rights in Christ…which are divine health, good success, victory the good thing about this inheritance is that if we walk and are conscious of it, we will be free from sickness and all what the world has to offer. And also we inherit God, in other words what is God’s is also for also, so God too is also for us, just as the bible says in romans 8:10 ”we are joint heirs within Christ” meaning that whatever Christ has we also have. Also we should put our trust in Christ even in time of temptation because as Jesus has defeated sin so have we defeated sin…we now have dominion over sin

  • Anyalewechi Chinaza

    Having knowledge of the inheritance which we have Christ Jesus, all we have to do is to trust and obey his word.

  • Arene Ifeyinwa Ketochukwu

    We have to put our trust in God and not men because man will let us down but God will never let us down.

    • Agnes

      Yes ma, it takes the daily intake of his world to help us grow in christ and to overcome temptations that we encounter as Christians. I pray God helps us to daily study his word. Amen.

  • Onyeka Stanley

    I love what proverbs chapter 3 says, “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean on not your own understanding.” God help me to trust you.

  • Oshana Oyaku Endurance

    I believe that: those that trust in the Lord shall be strong and in times of temptation and storm their strength shall be renewed. That is what make me joyful.

  • Always trust and have faith in God nothing is impossible for him to do, with him everything is possible. When you are going through tribulations, temptations and trails trust in God he will come to your rescue and see you through. Thank you ma for this inspirational post.

  • Trusting in God is just like putting all your weight on him and believing on his promises. It is what every Christian needs.

  • Joseph Chizoba Kingsley

    This is encouraging! Whenever we are faced with difficulty, if really we know and understand the word of God, we can easily surmount, overcome and come out victorious. This is because the world of God existed before the world (and problems).

  • Mark Favour

    God’s plans for me shall come to pass, all I need to is to wait and see, and everything will be alright. For God has a plan with me in mind, that I may be fruitful and multiply, he knows my end before the beginning. I won’t be dismay, i will trust in God.
    Thank you ma, for that wonderful dose.
