The LORD is my light and my salvation – so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident. (Psalm 27:1-3)
When you think of confidence in the Bible, one of the clearest examples is the life of David. He was an unhesitating and unfaltering warrior for the Lord. He led with decision and exuded confidence wherever he went.
The reason David could be so confident was that his source of confidence was not himself, but God. He wasn’t perfect but God is, and he knew that God would not fail him. The verses above show this, as do many other of David’s Psalms. Psalm 27 in particular emphasizes that God is so much greater than all the opposition that comes against us.
You have a God who is always victorious. When you fail, He doesn’t. You can always trust in Him to conquer your enemies and protect you. Regardless of what you’re walking through, you have no need to fear. God is on your side; and if He is for you, who can stand against you (Romans 8:31)? Remain confident today. Your king is trustworthy and unfailing.Like what you've read? Receive free email updates from The Voice Online: Subscribe
