Confidence in God by Bridget A. Thomas

My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! – Psalm 108:1

Do you have confidence in God? You might ask, “What does it mean to have confidence in God?”

According to Merriam-Webster, confidence can mean:
1a : a feeling or consciousness of one’s powers or of reliance on one’s circumstances
b : faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way
2 : the quality or state of being certain :
3a : a relation of trust or intimacy
b : reliance on another’s discretion
c : support especially in a legislative body

Do you have a feeling or consciousness of God’s power? Do you have faith or believe that God will act in a right, proper, or effective way? Do you have a relation of trust or intimacy with God? Do you have a reliance on God’s discretion?

When our hearts are confident in God, we trust Him. No matter what we might be facing, we trust Him. Some days we might walk through terrible circumstances. We might feel as though something or someone we love is being torn away from us. Maybe you had to change jobs or move to a new community, and this change is painful. Maybe a friendship is disintegrating and it hurts. I know so many of us have faced hard things this year. We don’t know what lies ahead. But one thing is certain, our hearts can remain confident in God.

This means we know He has a plan and a purpose. This means that we trust Him with our present situation and we trust Him with our future. What we are walking through might be beyond difficult, but we can hold onto the fact that God is working all things together for good, as it says in Romans 8:28. Whatever you might be facing today, I pray you are able to turn to our trustworthy Lord and put your confidence in Him.
