Are you confident? What do you praise?
I used to prize other people's opinions of me above all else. I was broken, my self-worth was swiss cheese, and I didn't realize that my praise and my confidence was put in other people thinking I was worthy and good enough.
Unshakable confidence comes when we praise God above all else and we prize His opinion above all else.
Now is the time to start doing the deep work. Do you care about what your family, friends, co-workers, etc think of you?
Do you think you are good enough, worthy, wonderful, and confident in who God created you to be?
Yes, we are created to be relational and to want positive affirmations. But the affirmations of others should only be a "nice to have" not a "must have". Your choices, words, and actions should not be modulated to fit what you think others want.
To boldly walk out our calling, our joy, our blessings, and God's Kingdom agenda then our words and actions must come from thinking only about what God wants from us and what God wants to see.
What does God want you to say and do today? Let's walk that out. Let's choose to not align our thoughts and actions with others but with God alone who is worthy of our praise and is our confidence!
*Come link arms with me and I will show you how to transform your thoughts and actions to be in alignment with God's will and way for your joy and blessings. Link to my calendar below.
Let's pray: Dear God we humbly and boldly come to the throne room of grace with praise and thanksgiving!
Thank You Lord for calling us beloved, worthy, wonderful, and qualified for all that You have for us to do.
Jesus we humbly repent of our desire to prize other people's opinions above Yours. Lord please show us where we have a skewed view of our worth and where we lack confidence to stand firm in Your truth and Your will.
Thank You Jesus for being our Good Shepherd that watches over us and loves us beyond all measure. Please rebuke the devourer away from our harvest of spiritual growth and heal us in every respect.
Thank You Lord for always hearing our prayers. Thank You for always loving us and guiding us.
We sing praises to Your name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
