Maybe, like me, you have experienced a time when you found your confidence, not just in yourself, but in God, rocked? I am so very grateful that God didn’t just fill the Bible with those who were successful every time or those who always got it right. If He did, I am afraid there would be too many times I would want to quit; completely give up.
Instead, He shared stories of those who failed, like David, and who got up, praised Him and kept on moving.
Today, God can make us brave, whether life is all coming together or all falling apart.
We can have a heart and mind that is set in place, secure, and attached, even when our circumstances say “failure”. The first step toward having this type of unshakeable confidence is by knowing what God’s word says to us and about us.
Here are 10 verses for us to build unshakeable confidence, not so much in us, but in the Holy Spirit who lives inside those of us who are His! Print this list out right now, carry it with you and soak your heart in this truth!
