My Confidence Comes From the LORD

Romans 15:13
King James Version
13 Now the God of hope fill you 
with all joy and peace in believing, 
that ye may abound in hope, 
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

I am like a baby in God's hands.

By myself, I won't be able to survive.

But, through the LORD, I can make it. 

John 15:5
King James Version
5 I am the vine, 
ye are the branches
He that abideth in me, 
and I in him, 
the same bringeth forth much fruit: 
for without me ye can do nothing.

Obviously, my confidence comes from GOD, the mighty and powerful CREATOR, the ONE who loved us so much, enough to send His beloved SON to redeem us.

How about you? 

What does "confidence" mean to you?

Are you a confident person?

What gives you that confidence?

What are you confident about? 

Where do you derive your "power" from?

If you're not a confident person, what makes you that way?

Do you have a religion?

What does your religion say about confidence?

Religion, or no religion, what does your heart say about where confidence would come from?

Do you like to think for yourself?

What are your deepest beliefs?

Stuff like, what are your beliefs about self, God, others, work, life, the world?

What is your belief about the life you're living, or the work you're doing?

Who influenced you the most?

Are your beliefs still relevant in these most challenging times?

Do you believe we can surmount all these difficulties?

Where do you get your strength from?

What do you think will happen to this world?  

Are you happy?


At peace? 

JESUS is my SOURCE of "nourishment".

And it's all in the BIBLE -- the WORD of God.

There is really only ONE source of TRUE confidence.

And that's from JESUS, the SON of God, from whom evil trembles.

All we have to do is believe in JESUS, desire to know Him in full, desire to know His WORDS in full, desire to know God's TRUTH in full, and never end up a fool.

We are not dumb.

But we can act like one.

Worse yet, we play deaf, and blind.

We prefer things our way, when those haven't really worked.

We refuse to surrender to the LORD, who knows better, for He knows ALL.

God created us in in "his own image".

How can we be dumb?

How can we be fearful?

How can we even doubt we are wanted, and loved?

Sure, it is for God's GLORY alone, but what of it?

Why would we deny the CREATOR His GLORY?

Without Him, we wouldn't even exist.

Genesis 2:7
King James Version
7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, 
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; 
and man became a living soul.

I am peaceful, I am content, and I am TOTALLY confident in the LORD's LOVE. 

Stop struggling, stop fighting, stop doubting.

Believe in your CREATOR.

Be grateful.

Be kind.

Learn to love, as JESUS taught us.

Give PRAISE to God, the LORD of ALL.

Fill your heart with GOD things.

The Holy SPIRIT will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know, about every question you may have in your heart.

Let the Holy SPIRIT of God speak to your soul.

And you will never fear again.

You will always be confident in the LORD.

For He is the Alpha and the Omega.

Revelation 22:13
King James Version
13 I am Alpha and Omega, 
the beginning and the end, 
the first and the last.

The next post will be on how evil trembles before God.

That should make you even more confident in the LORD.
