Are you a confident person? What makes you so? Your own ability? Your position?
Is not your fear of God your confidence, and the integrity of your ways your hope?
Job 4:6 (ESV)
In his despair, Job’s friend reminds him of who he is.
If our confidence is in ourselves, we will lose it. Not only will we let others down, but we will surely let ourselves down.
But if our confidence is in God, how will we ever be let down? God never changes. The same God that provided manna for the Israelites in the wilderness is still the same God we serve today. He’s the same God who both parted and calmed the seas. He’s the same God who raise Christ from the dead so that he could be alive in us.
Have confidence in that God.
