This week's promise:
God is in charge of the world.



"The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. "

Psalm 121:8 NLT

Confidence has many meanings. We can be confident in ourselves or our abilities, confident that something will happen, confident about certain facts (including salvation), confident in God's promises. We can also take someone into confidence, which denotes a great deal of trust.

Trust can lead down two tracks: It can lead to a cocky self-confidence, which results in pride and boasting, or it can lead to an inner assurance, which produces a healthy self-esteem and a sure conviction of where you are going.

The word for confidence is also translated often in the Bible as boldness. With Christ by our side, we boldy set forth to do his work, and we are confident that we can do anything that is within his will. Our ultimate confidence comes from trusting that God's Word is true.

Don't trust yourself more than your limited sufficiency. Don't trust God less than his all-sufficiency.
