Confident

Publication2Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Phil. 1:6 NIV

Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.  Heb.12:1-2

Let go. Lay aside every weight. Fix your gaze on Him. What He starts … He will finish.

In this, you can be confident.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15 NIV

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.  John 15:7 NIV

Trust. Rest. Abide. You will ask according to His will … and it will be done for you.

In this, you can be confident. 

Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise. Heb.10-35-36 NKJV

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thes. 5:16-18 NIV

Endure as seeing Him who is invisible. Rejoice. Pray. Be grateful in all things. This is His will   … and you will receive the promise.

In this, you can be confident.

Lord thank You for the confident hope we have in You!

  1. Cindy, I was deep into these same truths this morning as I looked at Hebrews 12:1-2 and corresponding cross references. Thanks for confirming, confident truths. Only the Lord can give confident hope and I love how he shares it with his family. Have a blessed day!
