Confidence in God
“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” – 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 (KJV)
Apostle Paul is a good example for us to emulate. Despite the challenges he faced in the course of doing the Master’s business, he was not discouraged. He suffered shipwreck and was beaten three times with a rod, stoned to unconsciousness, imprisoned, etc. But he was unshakable for the Lord (2 Corinthians 11:23–33). He was always confident in the Lord Jesus because he had often seen demonstrations of the power of the Holy Spirit. He urged believers to always have confidence in Christ.
Dear beloved, make your faith work so that your confidence in God will not fade away. Draw inspiration from the Patriarchs, the Apostles, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Faith works with patience, so while you believe and trust the Word of God for what you have prayed for, patiently wait for the results. God will never disappoint you because you are His child, and He wants the best for you (2 Timothy 2:13).
Beloved, we can always be confident when we continually exercise our faith and begin to enjoy the fruits or rewards therein. Never say that nothing is working; keep practicing the Word in faith and it will work for you. Praise the Lord! You are an overcomer!
Prayer Point: My faithful Father, thank You for stirring up confidence in me through Your Word. Surely, I will remain resolute in using Your Word because it is powerful and works anytime it is applied.
Let miracles continually follow Your Word to continually boost Your confidence in me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
