I need more confidence.

I don’t like to see myself as somebody who lacks confidence, not that I want to be overconfident either. I was placed in a situation today where I came to realise my lack and need of more confidence. It was a powerful experience, which was painful, but nonetheless instructive. When we suffer deep down into our soul, that is where our real self is exposed. I sometimes force myself into situations where I cannot back out of. I like to think this is something where my personal limits are stretched and I can become wiser by it. That was the case for today, where I was completely out of my comfort zone. I urge you to try the same, stretch those limits of yours.

My real problem.

What was revealed to me today about the source of my lack of confidence: it was my lack of trust in God. I didn’t trust him with my life, I didn’t trust him with how much He loves me, and His ability to look after me if things went wrong, or should I say if things didn’t go according to my plan! King David comes to mind, he trusted God, he trusted God to give him the ability to defeat Goliath and become a great king. David had that lack of fear that I want, but more importantly, I want that same close relationship with God that David had…can you imagine?

1 Samual 17

From my experience a lack of confidence is caused by an increase in fear. Increasing fear is created by a lack of communion with God.

Please listen: A great high energy, uplifting, energising song. Confidence of ten men!
