Yesterday I posted about constant control and indecision. The root of both extremes is the same: fear. It fuels the strongest human thoughts and actions – and it encases us in ice, wide-eyed, shivering, unable to move. A powerful emotion if we allow it. Fear is against everything God wants for us, which is a life of faith, trust, joy, and salvation. So I encourage you again. Put your faith in God alone.
Today’s confession naturally follows this step. I decided to change my ‘fraidy cat ways and put my faith in God alone. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, remember? Guess what happened?
Fear reared its icky little head.
But not for long. I went to the Bible and sought the truth. I began confessing that I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Confessing that my faith is in God alone. Confessing that my qualification comes from Him.
“We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:4-5
Whatever you’ve been called to do, recognize that your qualification doesn’t come from mere people. If the God of the universe believes in you, who are you to doubt? So repeat today’s confession out loud. Say it until you recognize it as truth.
My qualification comes from God.
What has God called you to do? Are you doing it?
