Do We Have Confidence In Jesus If So How Do Find It

Confidence in Jesus

In this chapter God changed Jacob’s name to Israel. There was given much instructions on where Israel and his people would live and how God would bless him. God is so faithful with His promises! He promised Abraham that his descendants would be given the land where Israel was. No matter where Jacob/Israel wandered God made a way for him to make it back to this promised land. If we are to believe this story in the Bible we can have confidence in Jesus as He is God!

Confidence in Jesus

We can see many times in the Bible where humans mess up trying to do things their own way. But no matter what God’s promises and plans always come true. His prophecies he tells us through His prophets always come true. Take into consideration one of the greatest prophecies of all time. Isaiah told of the coming Messiah. Where would we be without that promise coming true? Our sins not forgiven? Doomed to a unforgiven life no way out of our misery and guilt because of our sinful nature? No, I am so very grateful for the faithfulness of God!

Thing is, because of our sinful nature we cannot be confident in ourselves. There is no way I could ever trust myself to do the right thing. No not ever! But, because of seeing God work in my past (you can follow my story on Fantastic Friday) and the stories in the Bible I know no matter what I do God will work it out. So, my confidence is in Him who can guide me and change me to better things. Situations I could never dream of getting to if I tried to do it on my own.

confessions of confidence I am confident in the God that lives and moves in me! I am free from doubt and I believe in the abilities and talents that God has given me! I live in a state of confident hopefulness that whatever I do will come out favorable!

Confidence in Jesus

Little ole me who cannot work because of my disabilities. Me who ran from my home to follow a man thousands of miles away. Decisions like that one would think I would be on the streets. That is the way we were headed. But, God had, does have better plans for us. As I learned to see God in my life I gained confidence that we would be ok. As He kept us fed, housed, clothed not by anything I did my trust grew. I now know no matter what as long as I stand strong in Him, He will continue to work things out.

Sometimes I want to let the doubt creep in. I live on disability and other government assistance. If it was not for that we would be on the streets. Government has been shut down for a long time now. Satan keeps trying to get me to worry about how we will survive. But the minute I said no Satan! God is bigger! God reminded me of resources He set up long ago that would get me and my family through no matter what. Things would be tight, but we will have the necessities, even internet no matter what the government decides to do.
