How To Truly Be Confident
(This post contains affiliate links, read my full disclosure for more details)
One Reason We Can Be 100% Confident 100% Of The Time
Confidence is not what most people think it is. Most people think having confidence means that you behave in a way that people will like you and love your personality. However, that is just an outcome of having a source of true confidence.
Here I will give you one reason we can be 100% confident 100% of the time.
True confidence comes from belonging.
Let me prove this to you RIGHT HERE ———> When you are with a group of friends who you are close to, you belong to their friendship group. The closer you are to the group, the more confident you will feel around them, because they won’t judge you if you do something wrong, or stupid.
Whereas people you don’t know so well might reject you or judge you if you do something wrong or stupid.
The theory has been proved.
So if confidence comes from belonging, how do I belong?
You already do belong.
Perhaps the most freeing thing you could ever learn is that you already belong to God. He has already chosen you. He has already eccepted YOU. You already belong to him.
The more you discover about God, the more you realize that that is all that matters. It doesn’t matter if you belong to a group of friends, or if people accept or reject you. It only matters that God has already accepted you. You already BELONG.
Being a Christian:
You already BELONG.
So you can change your BEHAVIOUR.
So you can BECOME something BEAUTIFUL.
Being an Atheist:
You change your BEHAVIOUR.
So you can BECOME something BEAUTIFUL in your eyes.
So you can BELONG.
Confidence is not having other people like you. Confidence is not any kind of behavior.
Confidence is knowing you are a child of God regardless of your performance.
You can stand on a stage in front of 100,000 people and pretend to be chicken and still have complete confidence. If you know you belong to Jesus, the whole world could be against you but you would still have complete confidence because He never breaks his promises.
Romans 8:38 says:
‘And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.’
Nothing can separate us from HIS love!
If WE are also in love with Jesus, and he is our heart’s desire, it is the most logical thing in the world to have complete confidence.
So confidence is not just belonging, it’s KNOWING you belong. Many Christians know that God loves them and that they belong, but they don’t yet KNOW they belong.
There is a difference.
True confidence comes from KNOWING you belong. But how can you KNOW you belong?
Through a relationship with Him.
A good relationship can only exist with love.
Pray: Lord, increase my love for you, and increase my capacity to receive your love.
True confidence comes from an intimate, loving relationship with Jesus. The more time you spend with Him, the deeper your relationship will be. The more freedom you will experience.
However, you want to spend time with him is up to YOU! Which is so cool! You could go on a walk in the forest and talk with Him, you could play Table Tennis with Him, you could even eat some spaghetti with Him.
That’s totally cool and understandable because spaghetti is yummy 😀
The more time to time you spend being intentional about being with Jesus and KNOWING he is in the room with you even NOW, the more confidence you will have.
Because then it becomes a relationship.
You can’t have a relationship with someone if you don’t spend any time with them.
