Confidence is a word that is almost hard to say without the prefix “self.”  Culturally, we are taught that self-confidence is the answer to almost every struggle in life.

This article takes a different look at the subject.  It describes how confidence, if it is to be healthy and lasting, must be rooted in Christ not self.

In brief the article defines confidence as “the demeanor that exhibits a positive expectation that God will enables us to accomplish any good work He calls us to do.”  Our goal with confidence is to rest in God’s enabling for what He calls us to do and not surrender to insecurity concerning things He has not called or gifted us to do.
