Confidence

Confidence, for me, has a negative connotation and almost seems like a taboo word to say out loud (or even write). Why is this? Maybe it is because confidence is associated with pride, but that is only true if we put confidence in our flesh. However, when we put our confidence in God, it exhibits that we trust Him and have faith.

Proverbs 3:26, “The LORD will be your confidence.”

This scripture is weighted with promise and evicts insecurities. This scripture gives a person the freedom to discard their doubt and accept God’s covering of confidence.

God encourages us to lay down our uncertainties and allow Him to prove His strength and power in every area of our lives.

My whole life, I have struggled with insecurities. I have questioned my worth. I have run away from the ministry God was calling me to because it was far beyond me. God called me to my weakness, not my strength. I cried out, “God choose someone else. I cannot do this. I will not do this.” It was His steadfast mercy that patiently waited for me to submit to His will.

One of the many things I have learned in this painful process is that God is my strength when fear consumes me. God is my help when I am laying in fetal position on the floor crying. God is my confidence when I feel incapable of accomplishing the things He is calling me to do. In every valley and on every mountain, He is there holding me up, supporting me, and encouraging me. He has proven Himself as an ever-present help in a time of trouble. Every time.

Be encouraged that whatever your opposition is and whatever your distractions are, whether they are internal or external, if God says you can do it, then you need to have confidence in Him. Completely. Fully. Wholeheartedly. The safest place to be is in the middle of the will of God, even when you may not understand and even when it hurts.

Pretend like you are trust falling backward, leaving behind all of your insecurities. When you hesitate and consider the dangers and objective facts, you are resisting His presence. Do not put trust in your capabilities, but go beyond your natural senses into the unknown because the LORD will be your confidence.

    1. Thank you for your response. Honestly, it is difficult for me to be transparent, but I know God is calling me beyond my comfort zones (again) (it just never stops) haha. I always appreciate it when people are open and honest with their life and I am trying to be as real as I can and let you know that you are not alone. We all have our ups and downs. Yes, have faith and don’t give up – God’s hand is on your life!
