In the midst of grief, anxiety, and uncertainty, people struggle to remain steadfast in their march towards the future. Hesitant, because we never know what the future holds for us, and how can we face the unknown with courage in our hearts when we are scared? In these times, we must remind each other to trust God and His plans for all of us.
Listening to worship songs about trusting God is one way many of us remind ourselves when our faith wavers. Songs are one of the most powerful tools to reinforce that simple truth — that He has been and will always be there for us even in our darkest hour. Here are some recommendations to add to your playlists for those days you need that extra reminder.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” — Psalms 46:1.
Despite all the chaos in our lives, we must have faith in God’s presence. Trust that we can always turn to Him for refuge and strength when we need it.
Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) by Hillsong UNITED
This song uses the story of Peter being beckoned out into the raging sea by Jesus, and how he sank when he began to doubt in Him. “The great unknown, where feet may fail,” is a lyric of this song that illustrates the fear we hold in our hearts when we walk into the great unknown of life.
There will be times that God may ask us to do something that scares us beyond anything and tests our faith in ways we never imagined. This song reminds us that we must always keep our trust in Him strong. In fact, during these trials, we should deepen our trust and go wherever He may take us. Know that God will guide us every step of the way, through the dark and raging seas, and lead us through any storm.
Trust In You by Lauren Daigle
In truth, we are small and nearsighted beings. There will be times when we experience obstacles and all we see is what’s in front of us — we ignore the bigger picture. However, God’s plans are expansive and go beyond what we can comprehend, and as we continue on our paths and look back, we will see those obstacles as the gifts they were.
In this song, Lauren Daigle encourages us to lay our hopes and dreams at the feet of our Lord. She asserts that we must keep our trust in Him because His ways are higher than ours could ever be. Though we may have trouble comprehending it at the moment, in the future everything will become clearer to us.
Thy Will by Hillary Scott
Through trials and tribulations, your trust in Him may waver. A lot of believers have questioned His plans for us, asking “why does He let me go through this pain, why doesn’t He intervene?” It can be difficult for us to understand why we have to experience hardships when we believe that the plan for our lives should be better than this.
However, listening to this song reminds us to be still and know that He is God. He does not exist to serve us, but we live to serve Him and to follow His word. Despite our apprehension and fear, His will be done. Just as God had plans for Jesus after his suffering on the cross, He also has plans for you after whatever trials you may face.
This song encourages us to accept whatever we receive from His hand because nothing happens without a reason nor His approval. It may be difficult to get through it, but it happens for a reason.
Sovereign by Chris Tomlin
“Everything is possible for one who believes.” – Mark 9:23
Sovereign’s lyrics reflect this verse in the book of Mark. This song tells us to put all the pieces of our life, from beginning to the end, into His hands. In God’s unfailing love, He creates all the good in our lives as well as the bad. Just as He can give us blessings, He can also take them away.
Throughout it all, we must accept what has been given and taken from us, because that is what trusting Him means. The story of Job is a perfect example of this, as well as the meaning of this song. “The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord,” Job cried out praises to God, even in his pain. And you too, in your pain, you must keep on believing and praising His name.
Surrounded (Fight My Battles) by Michael W Smith
In the book of Kings, the prophet Elisha faced an army and did not waver. Despite all the fear around him, he told his servants to be calm. He had unfaltering trust in the Lord and knew that he would be protected from harm. When the servant’s eyes were opened by God, He understood Elisha’s faith — Elisha was surrounded by an army of angels!
In this song, we are reminded of the power of God’s protection. Like Elisha, you are surrounded by His grace and love. Whatever hardship may come your way, that grace and love are stronger by far. Though this song only has two lines, it sings to have faith and know that God will always be you even if you are surrounded by troubles.
Whole Heart (Hold Me Now) by Hillsong UNITED
When we are fearful and hopeless, we cry out for help. When we don’t know what to do next, it is okay to cry out to God for His guidance and protection. This song tells us that in our times of need, we should cry out to Him who sculpted us in clay and formed us in His name.
The hands that created the heavens have the power to do anything, including saving a broken sinner. In this song, Hillsong UNITED sings of the power of God’s hands in reshaping our broken selves when we surrender to His will. Healed and forgiven by Him, we now have more reason to sing to Him than to fear what comes next.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” – Proverbs 3:5-6
