Five Essential Strategies For Godly Confidence

1.Know What Makes YOU Unique.
God doesn’t make duplicates-only originals. When God created you, He designed a masterpiece. He created you for a purpose. Not by chance but by choice. You are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10. If you haven’t discovered your unique gifts ask some close to you to help you.
2.Don’t Compare Yourself to Others.
If you are busy trying to be someone else…who will be you? When you compare yourself to someone you will never measure up. God created you to be you. Instead of comparing yourself, and focusing on what you lack, focus on your strengths and build them. The greatest gift you give to the world, is yourself. God has given you what you need to bring glory to Him, and bless others. He is the all knowing almighty God. Trust Him.
3.Hold your Head Up.
This posture demonstrates confidence. But here’s another reason to hold your head up. King David said, I will lift mine eyes unto the hills from where shall my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven, and earth. Psalms 121:1. You can’t lift your eyes up without lifting your head up. Even if you don’t feel confident when you enter a room filled with strangers, keep your head up, looking to your great God for help and confidence. Be mindful that as you enter a room, you bring the presence’s of a Holy God. Not everyone can say that.
4.Get your Identity From Christ and Not from Media
We are bombarded with false images, and unrealistic expectation of what a woman should look like and be like. Billboards, magazines, movies and television, over sexualize women and devalue their God given beauty, strength, and worth. This same media could never comprehend that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God, and that He is enthralled with your beauty. Stay away from the deceptions of our post modern culture and stay in God’s Word.
5.Believe God
When all is said and done, and you have read the Scriptures professing God great love for you, finally you must believe them. He has declared His unconditional love for you. He has proclaimed His thoughts for you, and His desire for you to enjoy the abundant life. He not only gave you life, but offers eternal life. He did this so we could dwell with Him forever. I pray this will give you the godly confidence you need to accomplish great things for our great God.
