“But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” 1 John 4:4 NLT
Have you ever noticed how the people of the world operate confidently even when they are doing something wrong? That is because they believe that what they are doing is what they should be doing.
The conviction in your belief, whether it is a correct belief or a wrong belief, gives you confidence.
As children of God we must be fully convinced that we are doing what we should be doing. We must be fully convinced that we are serving the God that we should be serving. As we become more and more convinced, our confidence in ourselves and in our God will rise.
There is no success without confidence. It is not enough to have confidence in others. You must have confidence in yourself. You must begin to believe that greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. There is no substitute for confidence.
Jesus walked the earth with confidence because He was sure about His identity. He knew that He was the son of God. Are you convinced that you are God’s child and that you have an inheritance in Him?
Well, if you are, it is time to let it show. Today, let your confidence be obvious. No more excuses. Declare to yourself that you have confidence in yourself and in your God.
To your confidence!
