I lack something.
And that is confidence.
To those that know me personally this may not seem so true.
But I can assure you that it is.
Making decisions (even the small ones) weighs me down.
Being in new places throw me off and scares me.
Not doing the right thing because I am uncomfortable.
Feeling like a failure no matter what I try.
I’m sure a lot of you have felt similar feelings.
The statement that has been weighing on my heart the last few weeks has been:
Now before I get any further I want to make a clarification. I am speaking about confidence not cockiness.
I view the distinction as….
Cockiness is excessive trust in oneself.
Confidence rests in the trust of another.
And that trust is in Christ.
How do we become confident in Christ?
Well, for one we don’t ever hold back. We follow the moral framework laid out for us in the Bible. We become saints of service and love and truth and joy and awesomeness.
We don’t allow the desire for cockiness (pride) or fear prevent us from whole heartedly doing the impossible for Christ. We just simply tie our sneakers and run after it.
I know this message is short but lets just keep it simple.
Are you confident in the plans God has for your life?
If you are, then start walking into the room with that glow. Start talking to people with that light. Start right now, strutting like this world is not going to weigh you down because the King of Kings has your back.
Confidence in Christ my friends.
Till you start believing it.
