The dictionary shows us that the word confidence means “faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way.” This definition explains the importance of having confidence and being a follower of Jesus Christ. The Bible speaks about how it is important for us to live out our lives confidently trusting in the Lord and living in an effective way.
We may sometimes lose that confidence in the Lord and become influenced by sin. People who are influenced by sin will become confident in themselves and this brings us to becoming pride and arrogant.
The TRUTH is we are not to have confidence in anything apart from God. Below are 7 Bible verses about having confidence in God:
For not in my bow do I trust, nor can my sword save me.
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain, but knowledge is easy for a man of understanding.
I have confidence in the Lord that you will take no other view, and the one who is troubling you will bear.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.
1 John 5:14
And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.
