Here is a little something that I stumbled upon in my inbox today. Confidence is a topic that is often discussed in many circles. From children to adults, students to professionals – across the gamut there are individuals that struggle not only in confidence in themselves, but also struggle in having confidence in others (especially God). I am reminded in this instance of Hebrews 10:35. The Amplified version states “Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.” Did you see that! God expects our confidence to be FEARLESS. Now that is a revelation! God has not called us to be fearful people. We are to be strong, loving, and confident in everything that we do.
The more faith we have, the more confidence we gain.
The more confidence we acquired, the greater is our reward.
I don’t know about you, but I am looking to collect much in the way of compensation for my confidence that was birthed through faith. So if your confidence is lacking, then now is time for you to get in faith and reap the GREAT and GLORIOUS COMPENSATION of REWARD that is waiting for you. Enjoy the article. Be Blessed!

The Secret to Confidence
by Dr. Myles Munroe
How do you act when unexpected circumstances arise? Are you confident or do you panic? Think on this scenario.
Your supervisor calls for you to come into his office. Immediately, your coworkers begin to remind you and warn you of the problems that are going on in the company. They tell you, “The corporate office is laying people off. Your job security is hanging in the balance.” Your fellow workers begin to make you think that you’d better be intimidated by your supervisor and afraid for your future. What should be your response? Do you panic?
God wants some people who are peculiar, who respond differently in life. A confident response is formulated from a Counselor who is from another world. Who is this counselor? Jesus stated, “But you know Him, for He lives in you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you” (John 14:17-18). This statement is one of the most amazing truths.
The Bible says that God will give us His own counselor – the Spirit of truth. He knows the truth about you. Jesus stated, “The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace, I leave with you.” (John 14:26).
So relax. Don’t be ruffled. Have peace. If you are a citizen of the kingdom of God, you have the Holy Spirit. You may know that the light bill, water bill, and other bills are coming this week. Just relax. Why? You are a leader, and leaders don’t panic.
Leaders stop and think. They are rational. They have the mindset, “I’m coming out of my situation.” In their times of many adverse circumstances, leaders believe, “They that are with us are more than they that are against us” (2 Kings 16:6). Leaders think with the power of confidence because they are not alone.
Jesus instruction was, “Don’t let your heart be troubled. The Holy spirit will remind you of things He has taught you.”
One of the marks of leaders is that they are not afraid of anything. The Bible says if you follow God, you will not be afraid. Are you afraid this week?
If you are a citizen of His Kingdom, the same God that brought you through last week is waiting in next week for you. God is a God of leadership. Everything is going to be okay tomorrow. Tomorrow is already finished in God’s calendar. Be at peace for the Holy Spirit is going to train you how to think. If these thoughts are not true for you, you may want to adjust your life to align with the principles of the Kingdom of God.
