Great Confidence


"So do not throw away your confidence, it will be richly rewarded. You need to perservere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised" (Heb. 10:25-26).

The best laid plans don't always come to fruition. Even in the best case scenarios, reverses are bound to happen. Some of them just little blips on the radar screen, and some of them major. Through each new trial, it is possible for us to get to know the Lord better. Through any reversal, our trust in God can deepen. Through ordeals we are actually able to develope an even better relationship with Him...Getting to know Him better than before.

When difficulties arise in life, we can be left unshaken, for our confidence is not in things we have acquired...Not in possessions, but in the PERSON JESUS CHRIST. He is all sufficient. "Cast all your anxiety on HIM, because HE cares for you" (1 Pet. 5:7).

Confidence in the Lord means having trust,relience, complete dependence on Him. We sometimes get impatient when our needs are not met on our time schedule. Sometimes our prayers are not answered immediately. There is often a delay. Through these delays the Lord teaches us patience. The delays may be Him enlarging our capacity to receive the answer He wants to give us. He allows problems to strengthen our confidence in Him.

"For the Lord will be your confidence" (Prov. 3:26). It is never a mistake to put our confidence in Him, because He never fails. If we keep our confidence, He will keep our cares.

Have a Wonderful Monday....Let you light shine...Love mark Phil. 4:11
