The importance of trusting in God
By: A. Muhammad

Trusting in God is an option available to all people. Undoubtedly, it is the choice of those who believe in God's absolute authority over all things. Whether we choose to trust in God or choose not to, God will not interfere in the actions we do, but we are given complete freedom over all our actions.
Trusting in God reaps many benefits for the believers:

1-
God grants those who trust in Him blessings in this life and in the Hereafter:

We will grant them well in this life, and the reward of the Hereafter is greater, if they only knew.
They are the ones who are patient, and in their Lord they trust. 16:41-42

Whatever you have been given is but the enjoyment of the worldly life, while what is with God is better and longer lasting for those who believe, and in their Lord they trust.
42:36

Those who believe and do good deeds, We will settle them in mansions in Paradise beneath which rivers flow; therein they shall permanently remain. What a wonderful reward for the workers who are patient and in their Lord they trust.
29:58-59

2-
The devil has no authority over those who trust in God:

He has no authority over those who believe and in their Lord they trust.

Once you make a decision, you shall trust in God. God loves the trusting ones.
3:159

God supports those who trust in Him:

If God supports you, none can defeat you. And if He forsakes you, who is the one who can support you after Him? In God the believers should trust.

My success lies only with God. In Him I put my trust
, and to Him I turn. 11:88
