Firm Confidence

Description

Resist the urge to be tied to the things of this world, which fade…but tie yourself to God who forever stays the same.

Job 4:6

Should not your piety be your confidence and your blameless ways your hope?

Where do you place your confidence? We all anchor ourselves to something in this life and usually whatever we are anchored to, that is where we feel the most secure and confident. The problem is when a storm comes and your anchor is moved you feel vulnerable and less confident. Is your confidence tied to your looks, social standing, finances, job, children, marriage, or your talents? But, will those things stand the test of time when life’s storms hit us? 

The only anchor that will stay true even during a mighty storm is the anchor of God. Our looks will fade, social standing is always fickle, money is easily lost, jobs are lost and passed over, children grow up and leave, people die in marriage and your talents will fade in due time. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. God is faithful and if you put your anchor in Him, your confidence will be secure. Resist the urge to be tied to the things of this world, which fade…but tie yourself to God who forever stays the same. Your confidence should be in God not in yourself, if you want to be a truly confident woman. 

Prayer

Father,

I want to be confident in You. I want to be able to walk into a room of other women and not compare myself to everyone in the room. God, help me to find my confidence in You and not myself. When I place my confidence in myself I usually come up short, but in You, I know I will be strong.
