Having Confidence in Christ

“For the Lord will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:26

When I look up the word “confidence” in the dictionary, it means “faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way.” A big part of society sends the message that confidence is found only in ourselves. I know that is not true. My confidence should be found in the Lord.

Proverbs 3:26 says that the Lord will be our confidence. How powerful! I know that I shouldn’t have more confidence in myself than the Lord. That’s when pride can sneak in — and sin is right behind it.

It’s easy to depend on my husband, family, friends, and even myself when I need to get things done. I know who I can depend on. Of course, I’m glad to have such a wonderful husband and family to feel confident in. But, I have to be careful not to put too much confidence in others, or myself, because God is where true confidence lies.

I know that He created me. I know that He will never let me down. He will always be there for me. He will love me unconditionally. He will protect me. He will forgive me. He will bless me. He is my Father and forever friend.

It says in Deut. 31:6, “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” This is a great verse that reminds me of what God is capable of and His promises to me. It shows me just how confident I should be in Him. I should be so confident in God and His Power that fear shrinks away at the mention of His Name. How awesome to know that we have such a caring, loving Father.

I am confident in the Lord. I am confident that He listens to my prayers. I am confident in His answer, even if it’s not what I had in mind. I am confident that He knows best! There is such peace in being completely confident in Christ. When we shine our light to others, and they see something different in us, I believe they see the confidence we have. Not in ourselves. Not in others. But, through our Mighty Father.
