Joyce Meyer: The Key to Having Real Confidence

Do you need more confidence in your life? In this world, we often get the message that we need more self-confidence, but God tells us in His Word that being confident in ourselves is actually a dangerous way to live.

Instead, we need to be confident in Him. And as born-again Christians, we have everything in us — through Christ — that we need to do everything we need to do.

Philippians 3:3 (AMP) says, "For we [who are born-again ...] are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory and take pride and exult in Christ Jesus and place no confidence [in what we have or who we are] in the flesh."

This means our confidence shouldn't come from what we can do in our own effort or strength, who we know, a professional title or what we look like. This is how the world operates, but God doesn't see us that way. God sees our heart!

First Samuel 16:7 (AMP) says, "... For the LORD sees not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." God is not impressed with our good works, nice clothes, the kind of car we drive, or anything else that has to do with our outward appearance. The only thing that impresses God is a good heart — a heart that sincerely loves Him, that desires to be obedient to Him and that loves people. When our heart is right with God, we have all the confidence we need to be and do everything He has created us to be and do.
