Confidence: full trust; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing
Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”so that we confidently say,
“The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?”
Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. — Hebrews 13:5-7
Confidence in the Word of God is confidence in life. Do we trust what God says? If we do our life exhibits that confidence.
Are we content with what God has given us? God created us for His glory and if we are confident in that we can trust that He wants the best for us so He may be glorified. He is with us always, never deserting nor forsaking us. That’s what His Word says. Do we believe it? Do we trust it?
His Word also says, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” “all these things” are “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?” God supplies all our needs according to His riches in glory. Worry means we do not trust and lack confidence in God and His Word. We do not need to be afraid. Jesus is our helper.
Are there individuals in your life who display confidence in Jesus and trust in His Word? Learn from them. Are you giving glory to God in your walk? People are watching and hopefully some are imitating your confidence in the Lord. Keep seeking Jesus so you can walk with confidence in your life.
