Psalm 16:8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
The Psalmist, David declares and has made a decision to always set the Lord in front of his eyes.
The secret to a life of confidence in God is to remember to ALWAYS keep our eyes on God and not our situations or circumstances that we deal with on a daily basis.
In other words, ALWAYS keep God in view as your primary source of sight in life’s everyday journey, regardless of what our eyes may see. This is where our faith has to kick in. The just shall live by faith!
Faith is believing God with hope and confidence beyond what we see with the natural eyes.
I am not saying to live in denial of reality, No! What I am saying is you and I have to daily, hourly, every minute, make the choice to either be controlled by fear or faith. We either trust God or what we see. Bottom line!
As I look through the rear view mirror of my life and continue to see all the hell the devil had put me through because of a lack of faith in God, I am now determined and have purpose in my heart that I will trust God even if it means me looking like a fool before people.
People of God we have a choice to make and that is put your confidence in other sources or Jehovah God who is God above all gods, a God who is Sovereign in all his ways, A God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask or think according to the power that worketh in us.
Which will you believe? What you see or what God says about the situation in His Word?
As David experienced this peace in all situation because of his view of who God is in his life and to Him, we too can have this same confidence when we do likewise.
David said “I shall not be shaken”! Is this your declaration on today? It can be if you purpose in your heart to be not moved by changing of circumstances, but instead to put your eyes on God and trust Him and hope in His promises concerning you.
The secret to peace and true happiness is found in God alone. We can find this confidence and peace in God’s presence. His presence is found when we week Him in prayer and His Word by means of God’s Holy Spirit. This is the place where true peace is found.
No, true peace and genuine confidence is not found in people, things, stuff, status, money, relationships, etc. It’s God alone!
Jeremiah 29:11 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Of all things that are and that may come our way on a daily basis we must remember that God IS and we should view Him in this light.
I feel confident and secure in knowing that God keeps me secure because He is near me. He lives in me by means of His Holy Spirit.
I have purpose in my heart that I will no longer live in fear and insecurity but instead I will be glad in knowing that I can rest secure in Jesus. Yes, It is in Him where my confidence lies and not in and of myself.
People of God, trust God! Place your confidence in Him. He is the ONLY ONE who can truly offer you strength and confidence that will enable you to persevere in ALL things.
God is our refuge and strength. It is in the Lord our God that we live, move and have our being.
Is building your confidence in God is where your faith is on today?
If not, who or where is your confidence being built? If it’s not God, your labor is in vain. Only what we do for Christ will last.
People of God, if you draw night unto the Lord you God He will draw nigh unto you. If you seek Him with your whole heart you will find him.
GOD IS M CONFIDENCE! IS HE YOUR’S?
