Empowering Christian Women To Get Organized and Discover God's Plan for Their Lives

Organizing the Inside – Day 130 Real Confidence

17How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.

Confidence comes when you know who you are in Christ.
When we see ourselves through the amazing light of the Word of God there is no challenge or dream too big or unattainable. It may not always feel like it but you actually have all that you need to fulfill God’s plan for your life right there on the inside of you.  When your confidence is in Christ it is a confidence that is unshakable and able to withstand in the evil day.

The best way to build confidence is through the Word of God.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Mark 13:31 It is the one thing that is constant and will not change. No matter the disposition of your attitude, or the situation around you there is one thing that remains the same, and that is the Word of God. His truth endures forever. For I am the LORD, I change not; Malachi 3:6 The world would have you conditioned to build, “self confidence” but anything you build on your own and in your own knowledge of your abilities will surely fail. God tell us, Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5 How foolish would it be then to try to build confidence on anything we think we know.

True confidence is certainly not here today and gone tomorrow.
True confidence is about having faith in the one who made you and ordained your life. The LORD called me before my birth; from within the womb he called me by name. Isaiah 49:1 Knowing that God made plans for you long before your parents knew you, should establish your confidence. There are those who would rather you not find your authentic voice, and not be the woman God called you to be; because in their unyielding hearts they think that lets them off the hook from having to do better themselves.
Yes, elevate your standard, for yourself and you’ll elevate the standard of those around you. Set a standard of righteousness, and stand firm in the power of who God made you. Consider the wisdom of God’s word, hide it in your heart, and bind it around your neck.
Then let your confidence soar to new heights!

Amen Liz. Confidence is an attitude and I think that when someone garners it in the fullest sense of the Word, they will carry themselves in that way too so that at such a points upon arrival into a room of such a person, just the appearance and character of that person alone speaks for themselves without even uttering a word.

Confidence is like a garment that you wear on yourself and it shines through when you live it as well.

Hey Sherline, I know that’s right it really is about living it.

Liz, Liz, what a powerful post today. Oh my gosh, if people only knew who they were in Christ they could “conquer the world”. What empowerment and strength we have when we know who we are in Christ. We have a confidence that no one can crush or steal from us. No one can steal our joy, our life, our person as a child of God. When we allow the “greater is he in me” to shine through we are “more than conquerers”. I could go on forever with this post, but I will stop here. Thank you Liz for today’s encouraging post.

Karen, only God can give us such confidence. But knowing what He said can absolutely change a person’s life. The Word of God voids all those untruths in our heads and gives us the confidence to “be more than conquerors. So glad you stopped by.
