Scripture: 2 Peter 1:5-9
Life is a constant walk. A growth process that enables us to do our work. For this walk, you can add positive or negative information that gives you the composure for everyday living. Much of our self-confidence is built by how we see ourselves.
When we see ourselves through God’s eyes, we are confident, doing what is right with dignity and grace in every area. When we lose our focus, we are fearful and uncertain, stripped from all assurances, and we are an open target for the enemy to do his work in and through us.
According to the scripture in 2 Peter 1 from verse 5, make every effort to add to your faith. An impressive list that begins with goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love. The one builds the other. It cannot operate alone. To be truly self-confident, these qualities should be visible in your life.
If not, then you should try to add it as the scripture states. God will not come with a magic wand and do it. No, He expects you to do so.
It is a conscious thought to add daily and walk in confidence. It sets you apart as God intended. When we add, we become love. We become grace and are an arm and mouthpiece for the Father. A true witness to His Name.
Father, your Word gives us the tools to walk confidently into this world. Help me set my fears and worries aside so that I can replace them with your attributes. Let goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love be clear in my daily walk.
Your word teaches me I am can overcome all things, help my feeble mind to be strong and tap into your resources. Thank you for equipping me to be the person you have called. To truly walk in love as shown by your Son, Christ Jesus.
In Jesus Name, Amen.Worthy to be Loved
