Jumping straight into this post I want to talk about a word I noticed on the internet a little while back called GODFIDENCE. When following God's will for your life and using your talents to advance the Kingdom of God you WILL NEED... GODFIDENCE. Confidence in God will sustain you during the storms and preserve you in ALL your ways and when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched (hence the phrase people use once they have endured a storm or test--- "I'm so glad I don't look like what I've been through") Psalm 91:11 & Isaiah 43:2. GODFIDENCE freely gives me the grace to make mistakes, be free from wordly judgment, be myself, love deeper, forgive more freely, enjoy my life no matter the season, and just be free. The life He planned for us, He called it a GOOD LIFE, Ephesians 2:8-10. I realized my GODFIDENCE grows when I humble myself and admit that "I don't know...(insert your issue here)". I'm comforted to know that I don't have to know, and I feel elated because God does know ALL THINGS. If you allow Him to help you slay those giants and move those mountains in your life, trust me you will realize that your level of GODFIDENCE will be on FLEEK lol! Romans 15:13.
Promotion comes from God, He elevates you into new places generally after you have been patient and allowed Him to change you. Every new level of elevation requires a new and more improved you, GODFIDENCE gives you the grace to embrace all that you can and more importantly bring about change. How has your heart been lately? Are you allowing the cold, cruel world to steal your joy and turn you bitter? Or do your thoughts push you into dark depressing places that cause you not to feel like yourself and steal your hope for a better outcome? First of all, I want you to know and remember that God makes ALL things NEW including Y O U! Revelation 21:5. In an ever changing world we all need someone consistent and greater than ourselves to believe in. We cannot rush the plans of God however, with GODFIDENCE you can rest assured that you will NOT die, you WON'T miss out, you WON'T be overlooked, and His blessing WILL NOT delay! Habakkuk 2:3
Your GODFIDENCE grows when you read God's word, that is His love letter to us. It is very important to chose a bible translation that you can understand easily this simple selection will cause you to actually want to read and study what God is telling us. Proverbs 4:7 (I read the Amplified most times but the NIV and NLV work for me also.) Reading your bible isn't a gift we give to God but instead it is where we learn about His limitless gifts He is yearning to bless us with. In His word is where you learn about His character and His nature. In His love letter I experience His loving kindness and His loving correction. In His love letter to us I can build myself up and free myself from doubt, worry, and fear. Little by little His word will begin to take root in your heart and you will become like a tree planted firmly in His love. When you know that God loves you no matter what and that He has equipped you with all you need to win in life then you realize that you are on the The Winning Team and your GODFIDENCE can't be conquered.
P.S. - Here is a friendly challenge for you, spend more time getting to know God personally and THANKING God than you do ASKING God. What does GODFIDENCE mean to you? How has your confidence in God been working for you? Inspire us down below in the comment section. I love hearing from you!
