When we live God’s way, we gain confidence from Him. Is there anyone more confident than God? Nothing changes God or shakes HIS confidence! (Malachi 3:6) When we’re close to Him, He frees us from our ineptitude. We live in the divine pleasure of pleasing Him and we’re released from the pressure of pleasing people; thus, their negative opinions no longer fracture us. He imparts His matchless wisdom so we may answer the inferior wisdom of men. His strength surrounds us. We experience His love so deeply that we aren’t desperately prostrating ourselves to earn it from others. Living close to God makes us unshakeable! 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.” (Psalms‬ ‭16:7-9‬) http://bible.com/59/psa.16.7-9.esv

God is our greatest confidence and strength! Think about the things or people who shake your confidence—who or what are they compared to God? Nothing. How then, can we always be confident? Permanent confidence is not found by more time in the gym, more money, more plastic surgery, less weight, better jobs, etc. It is getting closer to God–He made all the things we think give us value! Close to Him, we receive His counsel, love and strength. When I stray from His presence by disobedience or by neglecting my relationship with Him, I feel the confidence of His presence leave me. I become fearful. I become desperate to have Him close! His presence has become my greatest confidence! When we spend quality, personal time with unshakable God, He gives us the confident courage to move mountains!
