One of my favorite Bible verses about confidence is “I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6)
Godly Confidence to do His Will
When you think of confidence, what comes to mind? Is your confidence defined by the clothes you wear, the car you drive, or the house you live in? How about the abilities you have, or the traits you were born with? Do you feel confident in your self right now? Are you able to handle any task that is asked of you without fear of failure?
God teaches us that we are created in His image and that we are to rely on Him. If we rely on ourselves, we will never be completely confident. God gives us the strength and talent to complete our tasks. The fulfillment of our confidence is found in Him.
Have you ever been put in a position where someone seeks your advice about marriage, finances, or just about living a Godly life in general? Do you doubt yourself? Why would you be picked for this? God puts people in our lives to help us in times of doubt, but he also puts us in positions to help others in times when they are in doubt, and might need someone to lift them up. Be confident in what God asks of you. Know that He is with you and will guide your words. Seek Him in prayer when you are not sure.
May these Bible verses about confidence give you courage to do God’s will in your life. Keep the path He has laid out before you, knowing He will be there to lift you up in all the roles you play. May God Bless you abundantly!
