Faith In Action ‘Confidence’

confience

We are loved by an awesome God, this should give us confidence to be His hands and His feet and His voice.

One of my experiences from when I was driving a taxi, as a source of income, I would get to meet a lot of people, and in the rare case someone will ask me a straight about what I believe.

It happen to me on occasions, and on one of these occasions, two overseas visitors were to get in my taxi. They asked me what made me tick, and what was important to me.

A big Question required a Big response, and I told them my family mattered to me, but most importantly my Faith in my Creator God was the thing that made me tick {their terms}.

Their loaded question got my Big response. They told me they were very impressed by my response and could see the confidence, I had in my conviction.

As they left the taxi, I gave them each a ministry card, they went away holding and reading the card.

Here are some confidence scriptures to help us all be more confident in our response, to questions about our faith life and walk.{Message Bible}

Psalm 27 verse 1 “light, space, zest-that’s God! So, with Him on my side I,m fearless, afraid of no one and nothing”.

Psalm 86 verse 7 “Every time I’m in trouble I call on you, confident that you’ll answer.”

Psalm 118 verse 5 t0 6 ” Push to the wall, I call to God; from the wide open spaces, He answered. God’s now at my side and I’m not afraid; who would dare lay a hand on me?”

Proverbs 28 verse 1 “The wicked are edgy with guilt, ready to run off even when no one’s after them; Honest people are relaxed and confident, bold as lions.”

1 Corinthians 10 verse 12 ” Forget about self-confidence; it’s useless. cultivate God confidence.”

1 Corinthians 15 verse 58 “With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. and don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.”

2 Corinthians 4 verse 18 ” So we’re not giving up. how could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where god is making new life, not a day goes by without His unfolding Grace.”

Colossians 2 verse 2 ” I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God’s great mystery.”

1 Timothy 1 verse 7 ” God doesn’t want us to be shy with His gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.”

Be ready to answer anyone who inquires of what you believe. tell them about the Wonderful Lord and Friend you have. Be willing to pray with them to, to start them on their journey with a purpose and a destiny in eternity.

God Bless
