Where will we place our confidence today? When we take it upon ourselves we find worry, fear and uncertainty. When we place it in God we get peace, joy and assurance.

Scripture says that God will supply all our needs. However we have to let Him. Our choice, freewill comes into the equation all day, every day. Am I going to trust God with this or am I going to take this myself. One decision leads to peace and assurance and the other to worry and anxiousness. I know I say this frequently but He really is more than enough.

Confidence and humility are often thought of as opposites. This is not the case. True confidence, the kind we talked about yesterday, only comes through humility. When we know that we can rely on God we are truly secure. But this means that we have to relinquish relying on ourselves, that’s humility. When it’s all up to me, fear and doubt prevail. When it’s He and I together, peace and assurance reign.
