Doubt or Confidence?

A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course of victory,” said Arthur Golden. “I never seek to defeat the man I am fighting,” he explained. “I seek to defeat his confidence. A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory. Two men are equals – true equals – only when they both have equal confidence.”

Is our confidence in ourselves? Then we don’t have much to stand on, BUT if our confidence is in God – then we have His Word that CANNOT lie. That’s everything.

Ephesians 3:12: In him and through faith in him [Jesus Christ] we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Hebrews 10:19: Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, [Hebrews 4:16] Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. [Hebrews 10:35] So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

Hebrews 11:1: Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Hebrews 13:6: So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?

1 John 3:21: Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God.

My question today is “Where is my confidence?”
