Being confident in this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it. –– Philippians 1:6
Are you a confident Christian? Well, what does it mean to be confident?
One definition speaks of having a deep conviction –– an unshakable belief.
It’s an unshakable belief that moves me to trust in God without reservation; a belief that causes me to operate at maximum potential.
When you are confident you are convinced, sold or fully persuaded.
However, as I look around many people are not the confident Christians they should allow themselves to be.
Many times this shaky faith stems from the things going on or rather the things they feel are going wrong in their lives.
You know the situations and circumstances that come to shake our faith in God.
But I want to suggest to you that God uses the tough times in our lives to work a good work that eventually develops us into strong and mature Christians (James 1:2-3).
Romans 8:28, and we know that all things work together for the good of them who love the Lord and who are the called according to His purpose. Hallelujah!
We must be confident whatever we face in life, that at the end of the day, God’s gonna get the glory and its going to work for our good.
A car salesman who is confident that he can persuade you to buy the car stands with confidence, he walks with confidence and he talks with confidence.
We must as Christians be confident about our God and about the work He has started in us, which is the work that he will finish.
Be encouraged, He will never leave us nor will He forsake us, be confident!
