“Firm trust. The belief that you can rely on someone.” If that is the definition of confidence, how confident are you in the faithfulness of God?
“Do not be afraid of sudden panic (or disaster)…for the Lord will be your confidence (at your side) and will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:25-26
If I’m being honest, my trust in God isn’t always firm. I have no problem believing who He is. But I can veer to a “hope so” mentality pretty quickly. I “hope” God gives me the outcome that I want, instead of having confidence that God will work for my good and His glory. Can you relate?
I need this reminder and perhaps you do as well. God is trustworthy. Every time. He isn’t predictable. Sometimes the outcome we see isn’t what we prayed for. His ways aren’t always understood. But He is faithful. If that is true, then we have no reason to fear. And we have every reason to place our confidence and hope in Him. – Sandi
