Is there anything in this life that you are confident about? Are you confident in your marriage? Your friendships? Your career? Your future? Maybe you are confident in little things like what you will wear, the money you have, or your material belongings. What makes you confident about those things? Everything in this life is temporary. As first John says, it will all pass away. So if we are confident in the things of this world, we place all of our hope in the things that will pass away.
If you instead place your hope and trust in the Lord and His promises, you will have everlasting confidence in the things that really matter. The eternal things. Just as 2 Corinthians 5:6 says, “So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord.” Our confidence comes from the Lord. He is our strength when we are weak. Because of Him we have confidence. We have confidence in Him and His Word and what He can do in someone’s life.
When you live your life, let that confidence shine through you so you can live your life for Him. We can trust that He will work in the lives of His people and keep His word.
