The Confidence

For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught. Proverbs 3:26

This is the verse I focused on this morning. Then, I moved on to more versus about confidence like the one in Hebrews 10: 35:

Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 

It seems to me that everything comes back to God. When I am able to sacrifice my self-confidence to Him, He steps in. Then, with His confidence I walk by faith each day, pressing into Him believing that He will do what He has promised me He said He would do. I will accomplish all that He said I will accomplish, because He said so, and His confidence lives within me, and He has promised that He will keep my foot from being caught!

Sometimes, I feel caught up in obstacles along the way. I can choose to press on, knowing the reward will be great. This is a very busy season for me right now, God has opened many doors that I have been praying about; it's exciting to me. It's also a little overwhelming to me. It has challenged my faith on some levels too, and my need for confidence. I have yearned for more time alone, to press into God and hear His direction. I have longed for extra support on the vision I see, and felt like God is moving me towards something even bigger.

I may not ever know exactly what the bigger picture is, but I know there is one, and God is asking me speak into it. I know I cannot do it, so I have to trust and believe that He will be my confidence and then He will speak through me. He will love through me, and I will be His vessel. I choose to obey Him and say yes.

Jesus. I Say That Again, be my Confidence now and everyday!
