    Morning Devotional: Embracing God-Confidence

    Today the Lord will conquer you, and I will kill you and cut off your head. And then I will give the dead bodies of your men to the birds and wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel! (1 Samuel 17:46 NLT)

     

    Every time I read this verse, there’s a stirring in my spirit.

    David charged into a battle far bigger than himself knowing where his power came from. He knew his source. The Lord had given him victory time and time again against lions and bears, so he entered the fight against Goliath with God’s faithfulness in mind.

    There wasn’t an “If I conquer you” in his mind, but a “When I conquer you” mindset—meaning, it will happen one way or another!

    David was able to talk a mean game to his giant not because he had self-confidence, but because he had God-confidence. God-confidence is trusting in the abilities of God and not just in our own limited abilities. David had not only strength, but God’s divine might.

    He trusted that God was backing him.

    I don’t know what personal battle you may be facing today that is far over your head. I don’t know what overwhelming situation is up against you this week or what trial is standing in your path, but I have to ask:

     

    • Where does your confidence come from?
    • Whose power are you trusting in to get you through? 
    • Are you living as if everything relies on you or have you surrendered your life to God?

     

    God has come through for you time and time again, each time proving His faithfulness in your life.

    With God, you have survived 100 percent of everything you have faced up to today.

    He has given us enough reason to believe that every battle will be conquered in our life, because He is the one going before us and He cannot fail.

    We’re overcomers in Christ before the battle even got started. Romans 16:19 says the God of peace will soon crush Satan underneath your feet! His greatness will soon overshadow the enemies’ plots. However, these things must happen because He will get the glory, and once He gets the glory, it will testify to your neighbor and the rest of the world!

    As you go into the day and into the week, meditate on this: “Where does my strength come from? Where does my victory come from?”

    Do you know your source? Remember that God is with you.
