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 God, our heart desires to be pure MORE than it desires to please others. In the pleasure of pleasing Him, we’re released from the pressure of pleasing people; and thus, their negative opinions can no longer fracture our confidence.

In God’s presence, we gain all the tools we need to be confident.

How?

God imparts His matchless wisdom so we may answer the inferior wisdom of men. His strength empowers us to do things far beyond our own capabilities. We experience His love so deeply that we aren’t desperately prostrating ourselves to earn it from others. We give mercy and grace to even our enemies because we have been given so much from God.

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)

People who shake our confidence are nothing compared to God. It is God’s opinion of us which should matter most. He loves us so much He died for us. Does anyone you’re trying to impress love you like that???

Our greatest 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. Conversely, when we stray from His presence by disobedience or by neglecting our relationship with Him, we feel the confidence of His presence weaken.  Stick close to God!!!

God’s presence is our greatest confidence!

Close to Him we possess the confidence to move mountains!
