As For God

“As for God, His way is blameless;
The word of the Lord is tested;
He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. — 2 Samuel 22:31

How comforting. God is faithful and trustworthy.

Thank You Christ Jesus

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength to do his work. He considered me trustworthy and appointed me to serve him, — 1 Timothy 1:12 (NLT)

What an honor and privilege it is to be a spokesperson for God Himself. That He would think me faithful and trustworthy to serve Him so blesses my heart. “But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me” my journey of a lifetime truly began.

In serving the Lord I am only worthy because God revealed His Son in me and by His strength alone I can do all things. As servants of our God we do well to recognize that we are not adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves but our adequacy comes from God through whom our only power and success come.

Our trust and dependence must be solely upon our Lord. We must seek His ways and be obedient with total surrender. When we are, we will see the glory of God at work in us and in those lives we touch. Are you ready for the adventure God has planned for you? He is waiting to reveal the infinite things that Jesus Christ can do through you.

Seek Jesus and let Him transform you.

But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood, — Galatians 1:15-16

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. — Philippians 4:13

Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, — 2 Corinthians 3:5

Confidence

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.
