Living with Confidence

Perfect love casts out fear.” (1 John 4:18)

Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God”  (1 John 3:21)

And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus.  By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place.  And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him.” (Hebrews 10:19-22a)

So humble yourselves before God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”  (James 4:7)

We who follow Christ are to live with total confidence, not in ourselves, but in our all-powerful, sovereign God who controls every single thing and person.  Nothing is beyond the scope of God.

Remember whose you are.  Draw near to Him in full assurance, knowing you have been cleansed by the blood of Christ.  You are in right standing with God because of what Jesus has done.  His perfect love casts out all fears.  Refuse to let fear or lies control your emotions.  Resist (stand against) the devil in total conquering confidence and he will flee from you.  You are victorious in Christ.  Greater is He (Christ) who is in you than he (the devil) who is in the world.  (1 John 4:4).

Rejoice in the Lord today.  Celebrate and live with total confidence!
