C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-C-E: This is something, in which we, as future leaders… should NEVER have a shortage of…..Confidence. Confidence is mandatory in everything that we attempt to do… throughout our lives. If we lack, that special gift… “Self-confidence,” then it could, and likely, affect our career, our marriage, our family, our social, and our spiritual life.
Nothing is possible without self-confidence. Confidence is the gas that feeds our entire physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual systems.
Then, of course, we must have confidence in others… in order for our own confidence to have a “nesting-place” …a place where our own confidence can develop, and be sustaining throughout our life.
We humans FEED-OFF each other, rather it is positive, or negative ….we influence each other for good, or for evil. We can have confidence in none, some, many, or in all facets of life. But, the most important facet would be our relationship with God.
Confidence in Our Lord God is paramount to our SALVATION… as having Confidence in Him, is to have LOVE, TRUST, SUBMISSION, BELIEF, and FAITH, and therefore … SALVATION.
We are told in… 2 Thessalonians 3:1-18 – Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ…
