There is such amazing confidence found living in God’s will! We gain confidence in God when we experience His character and realize He is our greatest source of confidence. God proclaims: “For I the Lord do not change.” (Malachi 3:6a) No person or circumstance changes God or shakes HIS confidence; and when we are living in HIS will we attain unshakable confidence. In God’s will, we are released from the pressure of pleasing people because we’ve experienced the divine pleasure of pleasing God. In His will, He imparts His matchless wisdom to us so we may answer the inferior wisdom of men. In God’s will, His strength surrounds us. The Bible says: “I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure…You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:7-9, 11) God is our confidence and strength! Think about the things or people who shake your confidence—who or what are they compared to God? Nothing. When God lives in us and pours out of us–we are NOT shaken by people or circumstances! God’s presence makes our life satisfied and full of confidence, wisdom and power. However, when we stray from His presence through neglect or disobedience, we feel the confidence of His presence leave us and we become fearful. His presence is the the key to our confidence! The first step to becoming confident is not to hit the gym, earn more money, make ourselves more physically attractive, etc.,–it is to spend quality, personal time with unshakable and unmovable God.
