Confidence

Hebrews 10:35, “Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.”  Worry undermines confidence because our focus is on our ability.  Confidence strengthens our inner man because our focus is on His ability.

Verse 36 goes on to say that we have need of endurance.  Confidence helps us endure.

Psalm 84:7 says, “They go from strength to strength…”  They are continually strengthened through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

Confident that He will be our strength in each circumstance.  Confident that He will give us the wisdom we need.  Confident that His grace is abounding.

Never waver from the truth of who He is at all times in our lives.

Colossians 1:11 says, “Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious pwer, for all patience and long-suffering with joy.”  Infused with His strength in our innermost being.

One thought on “Confidence

  1. Hi, Have wanted to write you but our time was so busy and wonderful with our kids, that I decided not to squeeze in time for it. I don’t know when we have been so blessed in our hearts over the ‘man’ Kevin (II) has become! and really got to know Ashley in a much better way. She is perfect for him and will have to continue to be a ‘patient person’ 🙂 but then after waiting 9 years for that ring…..she surely will make it….ha ha. Wanted to tell you again what a ‘coincidence’ (ha) that you should send the wrtiting on ‘Confidence’ on this particular morning. That was one of the main words in my Bible reading this morning as I read and reread Psalm 71. And again while reading it, came across the same verse that has been coming to mind when thinking about the upcoming devotional I have been asked to give the 1st of May…….”I will go in the strength of the Lord….and make mention of His righteousness” So I guess it is settled. And whatever I say, I pray will show forth His righteousness. That alone is my confidence. I still would like prayer for the exact choice of subject as still several things seem to swirl around my thoughts. Probably will end up with some compilation of all of it 🙂 just want it to get some form and sense. Is this the Thursday for your class? ??? love me
