Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and focus your thoughts and mind on all the good of His works.
Your happiness begins with your mind and the more time you focus on and spend in His word the more aligned with God your thoughts will be.
Romans 12:2+ says that we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. And that’s one of the reasons for memorizing Scripture and refocusing our minds when they go off track or are under attack by the enemy.
When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you are handing your life over to God. You find the courage, through faith to depend completely upon God and His strength to handle the things in your life.
This is your God-confidence and the first step in God-confidence is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We are told all the time that we need to be confident and self reliant. But God-confidence is not about your strength or the confidence that you put into earthly things.
Having a worldly focus means putting your confidence into things like money, status, people, and appearance.
Having a Godly focus means to seek your confidence from your relationship with God.
With Jesus in your heart, you will be able to face your fears and understand His purpose for you. You got this!
Be encouraged that no matter what you’re going through, God is within you.
Just like the sun breaks through the night at dawn, His help and hope will rise above any situation or circumstance designed to keep us in darkness.
Every second of every hour of every day, God’s presence and power in our lives is available to us. He is not just with us, but within us. If we are filled with the Spirit of God, we may experience falls and set backs, but he is right there to pick us up and carry us through.
