Trusting God in difficult times has been one of the many lessons I have learned the hard way. (I mean many many times)
I wish I could tell you that being a child of God will make all your problems go away but that’s only a fantasy.
Difficult times come as an opportunity for us to know God in a new way. It is also an opportunity for us to grow into maturity both in words and deeds.
“And since we are his children, we are his heirs. Together with Christ, we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.” Romans 8:17

1.1 Ask the Holyspirit for Help
The Holyspirit is not some Bible story character. He was there from the beginning of our creation.
He knew that such a difficult time in our lives would arise that is why God gave Him to us to help us.
The Bible calls Him comforter, teacher, helper and friend. I know it sounds cliche.
The reason we are often distant from God is that we’ve been disappointed by people so much that it has become our reality.
The Holyspirit has always been in our corner but we ignore his assistance because we already have our backup plans.
1.2 Study The Word Of God and Confess It
The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. JOHN 6:63 NLT
The word of God works and it produces results and I have proof! I remember putting all my savings into an investment.
Within a short time, the company had financial issues many people gave up on getting their money back.
I started confessing the scriptures over my finances every morning(even on transit).
By the mercies of God, I received at least 90% of my initial investment which I used to buy a course.
Keep confessing the promises of God in whatever situation you find yourself (without any apology)
I’ll rather look crazy to people but sensible in God’s eyes.
Speak God’s Words until you see the results.
1.3 Seek Godly Cunsel and Listen
In prayer, seek out believers in the faith who would pray with you and give you good counsel.
Please, any counsel that makes you lose your peace of mind. Beware!!!
Don’t let the devil lie to you that your problems are bigger than God. Your problems cannot be compared to what God can do.
So don’t be afraid! to talk with Him no matter how ridiculous you might sound. He is there to hold your hands.
1.4 Forgive yourself and Those Involved
“Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offences should come, but woe to him through whom they do come
Unforgiveness is a ‘bait’ of satan to keep us trapped in the same mess we are trying to get out from.
In other words, we must make room in our hearts for other people’s shortcomings because we will be hurt by people one way or the other.
Know that inherent in every man is the ability to disappoint. In our frail state as humans, we need a compassionate saviour.
I don’t know who might have caused you much pain.
Your refusal to forgive would only hurt you. (I’ve been there!)???
“But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
MATTHEW 6:15 KJV
Would you rather prefer that your prayers aren’t answered, and you lose your peace of mind?
As someone who has walked that path too many times, it is a horrible experience.
1.5 See Adversity Differently
God uses adversity to get rid of our pride or any behaviour that displeases Him.
Have you ever made fun of someone else’s mistake only to do the same later?
Such experiences teach us how to be quiet and more compassionate.
God uses adversity to teach us compassion, wisdom and even strengthen us for the next level.
Treasures inside of us are all revealed in the place of adversity.
If we are patient enough(really patient) we come out as pure gold, refined and become a blessing to others as well. There is no waste in God(never).
