Trusting God is a Matter of the Will

Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts (Gerald Bridges and Jerry Bridges)

… trusting God is first of all a matter of the will  and is not dependent on my feelings. I choose to trust God, and  my feelings eventually follow.
Having said that trusting God is first of all a matter of the  will, let me qualify that statement to say that, first of all, it is a  matter of knowledge. We must know that God is sovereign, wise,  and loving in all the ways we have come to see what those  terms mean in previous chapters. But having been exposed to  the knowledge of the truth, we must then choose whether to  believe the truth about God, which He has revealed to us, or  whether to follow our feelings. If we are to trust God, we must  choose to believe His truth.
