Reflection:

When do you feel most confident?

I feel most confident when I’m either singing or maybe when I’m decorating cake. You see, I’m a singer and a cake decorator. When I do those activities, I feel most confident.

What causes you fear?

Do you know what causes me fear?

This right here! I hate public speaking!

But I know how God has helped me to overcome my fears in life.

God has reminded me of who I am in Christ.

Listen to what the Apostle Paul describes us as Christians: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Now in this passage, the Apostle Paul is addressing a group of people who are suffering for their faith.

The Bible tells us that "Without faith it is impossible to please Him.." (Hebrews 11:6).

Now, perhaps, the suffering you’re going through isn’t related to your faith or sharing the gospel.

But know this that God has given you every spiritual resource you need to either overcome or endure any trial or threat. So, regardless if its spiritual attack, fear because of illness, or an unexpected trial, God has you right where He wants you. God has given you the spiritual gifts you need. God has given you a spirit of boldness not because of who you are, but because of who God is.

The world is watching to see how you respond to life’s circumstances.

Lean into God for strength, because He’s already leaned into you. Trust Him, trust His power.

Prayer: 

Father, thank you for providing exactly what I need to endure my trial. Help me not to fear, but instead show the spirit of power because of who You are. Strengthen my faith Lord, help me to trust You through Your Word. I pray to You, in Jesus Name, Amen.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO BUILD CONFIDENCE

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
