We’re celebrating a birthday!
I can hardly believe Make Your Move: Finding Unshakable Confidence Despite Your Fears and Failures my Bible study for women, is one year old this week!
If you are joining me here today from my Proverbs 31 Ministries Encouragement for Today devotional, My Words Give Me Away, welcome! If you haven’t read the full devotion, I invite you to do so by clicking here.
Have you ever wanted to say “Come Back!” just as you have heard words escape your mouth … words that should have never come out?
There is no time like the time of the holiday hussle when, suddenly our words explode from the pressing pressure in our hearts.
This year I’m believing will be different as I have been from the daughters of the daughters of Zelophehad.
Talk about under pressure! In Numbers 27, these five sisters were facing homelessness unless something changed. They had to find courage and confidence to go before Moses to get traditions changed. They boldly speak in verse 4: “Why should our father’s name disappear from his clan because he had no son? Give us property among our father’s relatives.” Numbers 27:4 (NIV)
Do you hear that faith? Their words gave them away!
Our words also give us away.
What are we building inside?
Are we purposefully putting in faith to fuel our heart? Trust and confidence in God and Him living His power out of us?
Or are we just fear and worry to to take over?
There’s not a lot we can control in this life, but we can control what is growing in our heart. We can choose.
May our words give away that we are building our confidence, not on ourselves and our ability to “pull it off” but on our perfect God, continually reminding ourselves of His promises and word to us.
It would be my honor in 2019 to come alongside you to build this kind of confidence; Christ confidence. It’s not a confidence that we can lose or have taken from us, no matter what comes our way. It is an unshakable confidence built on our unshakable God.
Invite a friend or introduce Make Your Move to your Bible study leader. Together, make your move and discover the confidence God has always intended for you!
