The Source of Our Confidence

The Confident Woman’s Assurance

A confident woman is assured of herself only because she is assured of the One who lives in her. She is not egotistical, she’s not arrogant, and she doesn’t belittle anyone to make herself feel better. A confident woman is convinced–convinced she is successful at whatever task she undertakes because of the power of God that works through her. As a result she approaches life with determination and boldness. In times when she is challenged she maintains her composure knowing that she will come through with victory. Her confidence is evident in the way she walks, the way she talks, and how she values herself and others. It precedes her when she enters a room and leaves a hint of wonder and amazement in the air behind her.  She knows there is nothing in life she will ever face that she and the Lord can’t handle.

Think About It

  1. Where do you derive your confidence?

Take Action

Sometimes it’s tempting to place confidence in ourselves, things, or other individuals to work on our behalf. Educational pedigree, high-power positions, strong connections, etc. can serve as false senses of security and can trick us into placing more trust in these things than in God– the One by whom all  things are made possible.

  1. Read Psalm 139. It is a powerful psalm that gives us perspective concerning ourselves in relation to God.
  2. Now read Philippians 4:13. This verse speaks about the Source which enables us to accomplish all things.

Remember, a woman of confidence is one only because she is aware of the power of God that dwells inside of her. This enduring confidence transcends human capability and is powerful enough to withstand the guaranteed ups and downs that life will throw our way.
