Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which will be greatly rewarded. __ Hebrews 10:35 (MEV)
Be yourself! Be the unique individual God created you to be! Never try to hide your uniqueness. Instead, be thankful for it. Don’t be afraid to be you. Be yourself. Who else is better qualified?
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. __ Judy Garland
What is Confidence? According to Webster, confidence is trust or faith; a feeling of assurance, especially self-assurance; security.
In the Greek, confidence is a quality of assurance that leads one to undertake a thing. It is the belief that you are able and acceptable. Confidence causes one to be bold, open, or plain.
Confidence is a belief that YOU CAN SUCCEED. Confidence and faith are virtually synonymous. Sometimes they can be used interchangeably. What it boils down to is this: Faith is Confidence in God. Do you have confidence in God?
Relax and be yourself! God made you an original, not a copy.
Ethel Waters said, “I know I’m somebody, ‘cause God don’t make no junk.”
Don’t try to be like somebody else. Be the best you, you can be. You are one of a kind. You are valuable to God.
So step out in confidence and be who God created you to be!
Prayer: Lord God, I ask you to help me to be the person you created me to be and to have confidence to be me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
