Confidence-Tuesday Truth

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 
2 Corinthians 12:9 esv

Where we fall short, God stands strong. If we let our minds wander long enough we dwell on the wrong things. When our minds are not guarded, then bad thoughts can impede us from reaching our goals. We think about what we can not do, what we lack, and where we have failed before. We feel the Lord leading us, but we don’t feel qualified or capable of completing the task. However, God is still able.

Where you are weak, Christ is always strong! You can have confidence in His strength and power. Above is a picture of me speaking at a pastors’ training conference in Africa. Hundreds of men were present. I was so nervous. But before I got up to speak I simply asked God, sincerely, to give what to say. And of course He did! When your mind drifts the wrong way steer it back in the right direction. Think about all that God can do. Meditate on how God always has EXACTLY what you need. Reflect on How Jesus always comes through for you. If it is God’s will you can do it. Be confident in CHRIST!
