Step # 1 Meditate On The Bible
Creating time to meditate on the Bible is the most important thing to do for anyone who wants to put their trust in the lord.

This How To Meditate article is a great read for anyone looking for a good proven strategy to meditate in the Bible and get wisdom from God.
Step # 2 Pray To God Always
The Bible says acknowledge God in all your ways and He will direct your paths.
You might need to break the common misconception of always being on your knees behind closed doors to pray.
Jesus said "And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me." while praying in public. (John 11:42).
And we know Jesus was able to get whatever He asked for in prayer.
Because every miracle Jesus ever performed was prayer based.

Fasting is hard but it's awesome for anyone trying to put their trust in the lord because it allows you to focus on the word of God more intently.
I mean, fasting really gets you tuned in.
It's like an enhancer for your Bible studies and prayer times.

Step # 5 Tithe Belongs To God
It's an honor to give ten percent of your increase for the good of the kingdom of God.
It takes care, discipline, management, consideration and planning, all the things a faithful servant does to touch the heart of God.
But let's see.
We know all things belong to God, God has no physical need for money, and no one can out give God.
But money can certainly be leveraged in favor of saving souls and feeding the poor and needy.
You can trust God by putting Him in control of your finances.
