Biblical confidence is rooted in humility. Humility is rooted in submission to God. When we are under the authority of God, living in the fear of God, obeying the word of God, we will walk in biblical confidence for we know who we are and whose we are. Biblical confidence is desperately needed in this hour, but it only comes from being in an intimate relationship with God which results in obedience to whatever it is He asks us to do. Most people want to be the ruler of their own life and then wonder why they lack confidence, identity and authority. The key to unlock all we desire is to be one with God.
Psalm 68:1-4 says, “Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered, And let those who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish before God. But let the righteous be glad; let them exult before God; Yes, let them rejoice with gladness. Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts, Whose name is the LORD, and exult before Him.”
The Lord spoke to me as I was praying these verses this morning and He said, “Enemies of you will do exactly what they did with me when you walk in the room. They will be scattered, flee and perish. And the righteous will do the same as well, they will rejoice and be glad to see you.” The Lord went on to say, “This happened with Jesus all the time, when He showed up enemies scattered and the righteous rejoiced.” Christ is in you, so when you walk in the room, be confident, do not be afraid, if someone or something is your enemy it will scatter, flee and perish, but if the righteous are there they will rejoice and be glad with you.
This truth establishes in us a confidence to not fear any enemy for Christ is in us. If you are in alignment with God, you have nothing to fear no matter the place you find yourself, because if there are enemies there they will flee, scatter, perish and if there are righteous there they will rejoice. My friends, we need biblical confidence for greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world. He arises in you and the enemy is scattered!
