“Such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God…” ~ 2nd Corinthians 3:4
Confidence in God is not arrogance. Being intimidated by the confident in God reveals only ones own insecurities and doubts about their own self.
Stay humble and desire to be everything to the fullest that God has created you personally to be and realize that we are all different and have our own gifts to share and excellence to give.
Find out what you are gifted by God to do and do it well in his strength and passion and while doing so don’t be intimidated or quenched by others who aren’t as confidently gifted.
When your confidence is in The Lord you can expect fear and jealousy in others to rare their ugly head. Stay confident and if you are feeling like you have nothing to give. Ask God…
He is The Giver of every good and perfect gift. He know’s exactly what to give to you. As well he knows how to stir up the gifts you may already have within you.
Ask in Jesus name. The Father is very generous in his giving and encouragement. We can be confident about that.
In His Love, Pastor Scott
