Confidence is the knowing with absolute certainty the One who spoke and does not change His word based on circumstances. Numbers 23:19 says “God is not a man that He should lie…” when you know the One you are hearing cannot lie, even when it doesn’t look like what He said, it doesn’t change what He said. Circumstances are like waves of the sea, they seek to toss you here and there, but He is still the God that walks on water and sleeps in storms. When this God, whose name is Yahweh, Yeshua, Jesus speaks through the Holy Spirit you can be confident in what He said. Fear not my friends, God has not changed what He said, even though the circumstances seem to be to the contrary. Circumstances are temporal the Word of God is eternal.
Luke 12:31-32 “Seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.”
James 1:17 “Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes down from above, from the father of lights. His steady light doesn’t vary. It doesn’t change and produce shadows.”
