The Bible has many scriptures that are replete with instances based on trust. The two scriptures that struck a chord deep within me and strengthened my faith in God are:
Matthew 17:19-20: "Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, 'Why could we not cast it out?' He said to them, 'Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you."
Luke 17:5-6: "The apostles said to the Lord, 'Increase our faith!' The Lord replied. 'If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you."
The scriptures in the Holy Bible are full of illustrations of people's faith in God. God is equally true and keeps His promise. Nothing is impossible for God, like in Genesis 21 God declares to Abraham, through his messengers, that he will have a son despite his old age, and this comes true and in his 100th year, Abraham gets an heir. It is all a matter of faith and trust in God. One must believe in the word of God and have faith that whatever he wishes for will come true.

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God.

Scriptures on Faith and Trust

You see that faith worked with his works, and by works faith was perfected; and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness;" and he was called the friend of God. You see then that by works, a man is justified, and not only by faith. ~ James 2:19-24

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. ~ Ephesians 6:10-17
The next time you feel there is no hope, read these scriptures on faith and get the inner strength and confidence. Have faith in God and the clouds of despair covering your sky will be blown away.
