Are you finding it difficult to live life to your fullest? Are you paralyzed by what others think? Are you able to reach your full potential? Is fear of the unknown holding you back?
We have all battled with these and other challenges over time. Even David said in Psalm 143:4 (TPT) that his “inner being is in depression and his heart is heavy, dazed with despair.”
Having faith in oneself that you can overcome these challenges is good, but it is often not enough.
Your self-confidence has its limitations, because no one can do everything all the time in their own strength. Sooner or later you will run out of steam and find yourself unable to enjoy your journey in life.
What we really need is “God-confidence” as Joyce Meyer calls it. Being able to rely on His strength and ability to live life to its fullest. That is the confidence that never fails. Paul in Philippians 4:13-14 (TPT) writes “For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things…I find that the strength Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty.”
Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to take His place here on the earth. He said in John 14:16 (AMPC) that the Holy Spirit is the “Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever.” The Holy Spirit lives in us as born-again believers and He is always there with us.
Rather than trying to make it on your own, begin to rely on the Holy Spirit to give you the ability you need. Choose to operate in that “God-confidence” that never fails. Rely on Him to carry your load and help you out every moment of your day. He will see to it that you don’t fail and will enable you to live life to the fullest.
God wants you to be bold and strong. He wants you to banish fear and doubt. He wants you to walk in freedom. He wants you to be healthy and whole—Spirit, Soul, and Body. He wants you to pursue the destiny He has in store for you. All you have to do is trust in Him to help you do just that.
Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination!
He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.—Ephesians 3:20 TPT
