Confidence

In the midst of a crisis, doubt starts to creep in, and we may quickly lose our confidence. If your confidence is in God, the outcome of your situation will be different (Jer. 17:7). The enemy ultimately has a weapon in pursuing to shake whatever you have made your foundation. The foundation of our confidence should be God, for the devil will never be able to shake Him. 

Confidence can’t be measured with self-ability because if you measure your ability against someone else, your confidence will be influenced. God is your confidence in your time of need, and if your confidence is in God, it means trusting Him, although you can’t see what the outcome of your circumstances will be. We do not find our confidence in our ability to handle the waves in our lives but in the one who walks on the waves. 

As Christians, we should not be self-confident but be God-confident. Confidence in yourself is temporary and limited, but confidence in God is consistent and sustainable. If you lack confidence, it limits God to move in your life, but time and again, God has shown His faithfulness (1 Cor.10:13). He hasn’t changed, and we can be confident in Him knowing He has the power and wisdom to walk us through our valleys of the shadow of death.

When we come to terms with our weaknesses and put our trust instead in God’s strength (Ps. 46:1-3), we are found no longer in the world—we gain Christ. Your disfunction does not disqualify you for what God has destined for your life (Phil. 1:6).
