Every now and then we need a reminder. We tend to lose sight of things. We forget. We move on. There is something that I am convinced that we need to be reminded of…and reminded often.
“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded…
But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.”
Hebrews 10:35, 39
Confidence is vital. And WHERE you find your confidence and WHAT you find your confidence in makes all the difference. The author of Hebrews reminds us to not allow your confident trust in the Lord to be thrown aside.
When our confidence gets shaken, it is hard to operate by faith. When we are not operating by faith, it is impossible to please the Lord (Hebrews 11:6).
Here is the challenge that many face: our confidence is in us. What we can do. What we have done. Our abilities. Our strengths. And when those get shaken – our confidence goes right out the window.
The solution is it inspect WHERE you are finding your confidence and WHAT you have your confidence in. When we find our confidence in who Jesus is and what He has accomplished for us, there is no need to allow our confidence to be thrown aside. When I put my confidence in someone who will never fail me, whose abilities go far beyond mine, who wants my victory even more than I do…I can be confident.
Today, be reminded of the Source of your confidence.
