People who are confident in the Lord are restful people. They are not tossed to and fro (see James 1:6), because when they pray they believe that God hears them and will deliver them from all their troubles. (See Psalm 34:17) David said in Psalm 112:7 that the righteous are so confident in God’s faithfulness that, “they do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.” (NLT) In verse eight he says, “They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.”
As sons and daughters of a living God you do not have to fear anything. ANYTHING! You can have such confidence in the Lord that even when doors you hoped would open do not or when you are face to face with an enemy, you will not fear, nor lose your joy, peace and hope. Why? Because you know that God is for you and that all things work together for your good. (Romans 8:28) Not to mention that God is faithful. If anyone is worthy of your confidence, it is God. He has proven himself time and time again. He delivered Daniel from the lion’s dean (Daniel 6), Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from the fiery furnace (Daniel 3), Jonah from the mouth of a whale (Jonah 2), David from a lion and a bear ( 1st Samuel 17:37), and the Israelites from Pharaoh. (Exodus) If that doesn’t convince you, then also consider the many other testimonies within the scriptures and, of course, your own.
Confidence, according to Oxford Dictionary, is “the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something. It is firm trust. Beloved of the Lord, you can confidently trust in God. Even when you cannot see your way out of a difficult situation or provision for a need, God has one. Rest your confidence in him and expect him to supply all of your needs. It does not matter what you need—deliverance, employment, marriage, healing, joy, hope, etc., he is able. And he is willing. Never forget. Only believe.
“Faith is the substance [The quality of having a solid basis in reality or fact (Oxford Dictionary] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1).
