Where do you place your confidence today? What gives you strength? Hope? Encouragement? Some people find confidence in a relationship. When the relationship is going well, they are going well. But if there is a problem in that relationship, they are shaken. Some people find confidence in their job. But if things are not going well in the workplace, it rattles them to the core.
I believe God wants to teach us to trust Him today. He wants to be our source of strength and confidence. But many people have a difficult time trusting God because they think He's mad at them, or they aren't sure if He wants to do good to them. Always remember—God's not mad at you; He's madly in love with you!
Realize today that God is looking at you with good eyes, with sweet eyes, with loving eyes. He's not looking at what you've done wrong; He's looking at what you're doing right. Not only is He the God of love, He IS love and His arms are stretched out toward you today.
Why don't you take a moment and let that truth sink down into your heart? When you begin to really understand the way God sees you, it will affect your confidence in a whole new way. You'll go deeper and further with Him, knowing that He is at work in your life.
Today, throw your shoulders back and have confidence in God's love. Choose to trust Him. Choose to lean on Him because He's for you; He's not against you, and He is ready to lead you into victory in every area of your life.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart… (Proverbs 3:5, NIV)
