Today I want to talk a little bit about confidence. Now this is a big subject and it’s something that I believe is so important for us as believers to get, and to have instilled within us, because I think we can all agree our nation and all of the nations, we’re in a bit of an identity crisis right now. And I think people in general, they’re looking for truth and they’re looking for security, and most of the time, let’s be honest, we look for security in the wrong thing. We look for security in our jobs, in our relationships, even our governmental structure, we’re looking for security, but I want to remind us as believers that our security comes from only the Lord, and it is the only eternal thing that we get to anchor our security to that never changes, that can never be shaken, that is steadfast and eternal. And I want to read a scripture to you today in Isaiah 54:17, and this is in the Amplified version. It says, “No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the LORD.”
Did you know that your heritage as a believer is security? That’s part of your birthright as a born again believer, is security in the Lord. And I just want to encourage us today, because sometimes we get caught up in putting our hope, putting our trust, because what the word “confidence” means is a firm trust in something or someone. And so I just want to recalibrate our trust, our firm trust and that we are putting that in the Lord and not in earthly things. We’re not putting it in schools and education. We’re not putting it in well-meaning things, relationships and families, but we are putting it on the unshakeable, never-changing strength of God. And I tell you what; I think if we can do that, and if we know whose we are, if we know that we are children of God and our trust and security is anchored in Him, then we won’t have insecurities. We won’t have insecurities. And we will be able to walk confidently with the Lord, knowing what He’s called us to do, knowing how to accomplish that, knowing that He’s a good Father that equips us and gives us everything that we need for the call of God on our lives.
And I want to just tell you today, God is for you and not against you. And I don’t care, whatever our circumstances are, they can never trump the will of God. And I’m telling you right now, He is for you and who shall be against you? Bless you.
