A lot has happened over the past few weeks that has got me questioning myself, like who/what do i have faith in? Sometimes we think oh yea, i have confidence in God but when something happens you start to doubt, and literally life does not make sense. Some of us rely on the wrong things, if you rely on your earthly success, well what happens when all of that is taken away from you? If your confidence is on how much you earn well what happens when you loose the job. All these things are VANITY, we hide behind these things and when they are not there anymore it is crystal clear who/what we have been relying on. It is time we put our confidence on the One who created both heaven and earth, He never changes, always reliable, always on time, the One who knows us from the inside out.
Well you cannot have confidence on something/someone we do not know or spend time with, well bear in mind you cannot fully know who God is in all his might (Our minds cannot handle his awesomeness), but having a relationship with Him and just being in his presence CONSTANTLY would build our trust/confidence in Him. I have arrived at the conclusion that I am responsible for myself, my destiny and it is up to me to fight my way through, I cannot emphasize this enough like there is no point moaning about how I wish i could spend more time with God and not do anything. Like my friends, mentors or whatever can only encourage me at the end of the day my relationship with God is something i am going to have to fight for, like if i want to grow i am going to have to pay the price.
There is a price for greatness, it costs a lot it’s not cheap if it was cheap everybody would be great. But i constantly remind my self that it is up to me to work out my salvation in fear and trembling.
Philippians 2 vs 12
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed, not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
I am trying to set my affections on the things above, but i get carried away sometimes on the things that do not matter. We have to remember to live our lives with eternity on our minds, it can be easy and it can be hard but the more you spend time in His presence your mind would be renewed and the less you care about these vain earthly things and the enemy would not be able to attack you with it.
Collosians 3 vs 2
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
But having confidence in God is the best way forward, knowing fully well that He has a plan for your life even when it seems like it is not working out , know that he is watching and he hears you. God is the only one that would never fail or disappoint you, people would definitely fail you even if they do not mean to, that is just the way it is.
1 John 5:14
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
All i was trying to say in this post is let your confidence be in Christ. But above all know that all you have and need is God, but this week i encourage you (and myself) to seek God and know Him for yourself, like honestly do what you have to do. Sorry i have not posted in a minute, but hope you were able to relate to this post but this is literally my “current situation”.
