Philippians 1:6King James Version (KJV)

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

What is confidence? Webster defines confidence as —

a feeling or belief that you can do something well or succeed at something

  • : a feeling or belief that someone or something is good or has the ability to succeed at something

  • : the feeling of being certain that something will happen or that something is true

    .

The scripture above states that we can be CONFIDENT of the fact that He that has begun a good work in you WILL perform it. Tying the scriptural reference and Webster’s together lets us know that CONFIDENCE is believing, without a doubt, that what you begin, you can and will achieve. It is the feeling of being CERTAIN that something will happen.

 

Have you lost your confidence? Perhaps some things have taken longer than you anticipated and your confidence has started to wane. Perhaps there have been many detours and bumps in the road that has made you question your decision to tackle a task. Perhaps life has given you more twists and turns than you anticipated and you’re having second thoughts about finishing what you start.

Might I make a suggestion? Think about what you started, why you started it, and if you believe this is something that He has placed inside you; something that is your purpose for being here, regain your confidence today and continue to move forward.

 

You’ve heard the song, well actually there are two: I Don’t Feel No Ways Tired and I Just Can’t Give Up Now. The lyrics to both say that “I’ve come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me the road would be easy and I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me.”

 

Regain your confidence today!
