Psalm 118:5-6 I called upon The Lord in distress: The Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do into me? ~ When we come into a place of knowing that The Lord is on your side and we come to understand that he truly is a good God, it brings us into rest, peace, and a confidence that everything is going to be alright. Our struggle comes when we have doubt and question if The Lord will be faithful.
When we aren’t confident in who God is, it causes our faith to waiver so that we question within ourselves, if the Lord will really answer and if he will do something on our behalf. But when we believe that God IS who he says he IS, when we believe that he loves us and is for us, it brings us into peace and rest.
Faith is confidence in God, in his nature, and in his very character. It’s knowing and believing that he is good and that he always acts in a right and just way. So if we are confident that the Lord is for us and on our side, it doesn’t matter what comes against us or what enemy may be surrounding us. We have 1000% confidence that the Lord’s mercy endures forever, that he is faithful, and that he will deliver us out of the hand of our enemies. Be confident today knowing that The Lord is good and that he is for you!
