I am going through a rough situation, how do I really put all my trust in God and have complete faith in Him and not fear, and count it all joy no matter what is going on? How can I have joy of the Lord no matter what is happening so I'm not depressed and stressed with all this going on?
You need to make a choice to believe in God's word and do exactly what it says. You need to believe Psalm 91:14-16 which says; Because He loves me, says the Lord I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him salvation. Also you must believe that God will never leave you or forsake you or give you up which brings you comfort. (Hebrews 13:5-6) The Bible tells us exactly what we are supposed to do in Philippians 4:6-8. God tells us not to worry or be anxious about anything but to bring our requests to Him with thanksgiving so we can receive the peace of God. Then the scripture goes on to tell us that we are only to let our minds think on what is lovely, just, right, and pure. If you will follow these scriptures you will not feel depressed or stressed.
