True confidence never comes from how we feel or what we can or can’t do – it comes from having a revelation of who we are in Christ. When we really know how much God loves us and receive His healing from past hurts, then we will no longer feel the need to base our confidence on things of the flesh.
I can remember a time years ago when I struggled with a lack of confidence because I did not have a college degree like a lot of other preachers I knew. Thankfully, as I began to focus on God’s unconditional love for me, I learned to base my confidence on who His Word says I am – the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus (see 2 Corinthians 5:21).
Jesus wants to restore true confidence in your life by healing you from things in your past that have damaged the way you feel about yourself. As you look at what is right with God instead of what is wrong with you, you will begin to walk in the confidence that comes from being in Him.
Prayer Starter: God, I don’t have to walk around feeling bad about what’s wrong with me because I know who I am in Christ. My confidence is in You!
Memory Verse: For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, (Philippians 3:3 NKJV)
