To build your confidence is more than a “pick yourself up by your bootstraps” action. It is a firm, unwavering belief that God has your back, no matter what.
The Lord is our confidence, and confidence in Him removes all doubt and fear from our lives because He did not give us a spirit of fear or timidity. He gave us a spirit of power, love and self-discipline.
God has commanded us over and over again to not be afraid, but to be strong and courageous, for He will be with us wherever we go. So do not throw away your confidence; but continue to persevere despite whatever circumstance you are facing now and you will receive all He has promised.
Here are 7 Scriptures to help you build your confidence as you walk with God.
For the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.
So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
