15 Bible Verses For When Life Feels Like A Roller Coaster Ride


It can be easy to tell a friend to trust God and watch him work when we are not the ones struggling. Am I right?

The Bible says faith can move mountains (Matthew 17:20), but in our struggles this can at times seem like the hardest thing to do.

It is certainly not as easy as reciting trust in the Lord Bible verses.

Last year, I had the opportunity to go to the West Edmonton Mall Indoor Water Park. I would never in a million years think that I would go on a slide 85 feet in the air and be willing to free fall when the count down ended and the trap door opened underneath me. Facing my fear of heights, I did it anyway.


On the other side of your fear is your testimony.


Why was I willing to risk my life?


I had faith that the operators knew what they were doing and I trusted that the venue properly serviced their equipment and placed safety measures in place to ensure the safety of their customers. Regardless, these measures could easily fail.


Wouldn’t you rather trust in a God who only wants the best for you?

What Does The Bible Say About Trusting Others?

Truly Trusting God is like the Hebrew boys (Shadrach Meshach and Abednego – Bible characters who trusted God), believing that whether or not he delivers you from the storm in your life you will still rely on him knowing that he knows best. You will serve him comes what may, that to me is having faith in the Lord.


I recently had the opportunity to participate in a team building activity. One partner was blindfolded and the other partner had to lead the blindfolded partner through an obstacle course. Although being lead by your partner, there was still the fear of bumping into objects and often times I would place my arm out bracing for what I thought would be a potential fall. Over time my trust in my partner grew and I started to trust him to lead.


The more time I spent time with my partner navigating different turns and bumps the more I grew to trust him. Its the same with God. The more you focus on developing an intimate relationship with God, the stronger your foundation for when life’s ” thriller roller coaster ride” comes your way. Instead of hands in the air screaming why me, our hands will be in the air boldly praying to God for strength to navigate this roller coaster ride while using our storm to strengthen us and also to bless others by your experience (our testimony).

As you try to navigate this period of your life, here are some trust in the Lord Bible verses to encourage you and boldly cling to God’s promises.


My Favorite Trust In The Lord Bible Verses

All the following trust in the Lord Bible verses are taken from the New Living Translation.


Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do,
    and he will show you which path to take.

When making decisions, don’t rely on your own judgment, because what seems right to a man its end is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12).  Ask God for guidance and he will show you the way to go.


Psalms 56:3

But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.

When you put your trust in God, you have nothing to fear. He promised that he will never leave you nor abandon you.


Proverbs 16:3

Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.

Put the desires of your heart to the Lord and if it is according to His will, he will grant your wishes.


Psalms 91:1-2

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.”

This scripture is a wonderful reminder that during difficult seasons we are never alone, God’s protection and comfort is readily available to us.


Scripture About Trusting God

Psalms 40:1-2

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.”

Patience isn’t one of my best attributes, I don’t like to wait. Often we may pray and wonder why it seems like God just isn’t hearing our prayers. However we can trust he hears and will answer right on time when he deems it best.

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.”

Just like the tree with its roots planted by the rivers, as long as you trust in God you have nothing to fear. Whatever challenges may come your way you need not worry or doubt. You are deep rooted in God knowing that your hope and confidence is in him.


Psalms 33:4

For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does.”

God is always faithful to his word, we can trust with confidence that what he says will come through.


Bible Verses On Trusting God

Psalms 92:4

“You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done.”

God is our “way maker”, he creates paths through ways that may seem impossible.


Isaiah 60:20-21

“Your sun will never set; your moon will not go down. For the Lord will be your everlasting light. Your days of mourning will come to an end. All your people will be righteous. They will possess their land forever, for I will plant them there with my own hands in order to bring myself glory.”

Regardless of what sorrows you may be going through, it won’t last forever it too will cease. God will bring an end to it.


Isaiah 41:10

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.
    I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”

God will never leave you nor abandon you. You have the reassurance that you are never going through what you are going through alone.


Isaiah 40:31

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”

You going through trials and tribulations by yourself is burdensome. However relying on your hope in God makes that burden way easier to carry. That which seemed heavy now becomes light.

Trust In God Verses

2 Corinthians 4:18

So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”

We should fix our eyes on eternal glory rather than whatever trials and tribulations that we are going through right now knowing that it is preparing us for eternity.


Psalms 125:1

Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever.”

Like a mountain that stands firm, we should have rock solid faith not wavering in what we believe.


1 John 5:14-15

“And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.”

We need to align our will with the Lords will then anything that we ask will be given unto us as our will is in line with his will. For example, you asking for wisdom is different than you praying and asking God to make you the next billionaire. Asking for wisdom is in line with God’s will than our selfish desire of becoming a billionaire. God knows best and will grant the desires of our hearts as long as it is according to his will.


James 1:6

But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.

Be resolute in your mind of what you stand for and believe. When you ask God for something don’t doubt but stand firm believing that he can grant you the wishes of you heart. Have full confidence that God hears your prayer and will answer. Faith can move mountains (Matthew 17:20).
