It’s been said many times, “You just need more self confidence!” However, the world is FULL of self confident people and look where that has taken us. It’s foolish to be completely confident in ourselves (someone less than perfect) yet we try. We even encourage each other to be that way.
What happens when our confidence is in our strength, and our health fails us? What if our confidence is in our looks, and make-up doesn’t do the trick anymore? Or maybe our confidence is in our ability to make friends, and one of them turns their back on us. What if our confidence is in how good we are at our job, and the company shuts down? What happens to our self confidence then, when these things are snatched away?
You’re probably asking yourself….where’s the encouraging word here?? Well, here it is…
We don’t need SELF confidence…we can put all of our confidence in CHRIST. Then we become Christ Confident People. People who are relying COMPLETELY on the only perfect human being that ever walked this earth…Jesus.
Then you realize, HE is your strength (that never fails), HE is your Creator and He made you beautiful, HE is your best friend and will NEVER leave you, HE is your provider will supply ALL of your needs!
When you become Christ Confident, life just gets a whole lot sweeter!
“We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort” – Philippians 3:3
