Focus on God
GOD IS MY CONFIDENCE

I always like to project my thoughts into the future.
For instance, I like to guess at what I will be doing
and where I will be in years to come. We certainly
don't know our days, but God does!

Psalm 37:18 says, "The Lord knows the days of
the blameless and their inheritance will be
forever."

The verse before it says, "The Lord sustains the
righteous." Awesome! In a world where anything
can happen, it sure is good to know that God "has
our back"!

He is the one we can keep our confidence in!
Meditate on the fact that "God is your
confidence". In fact, be very suspicious of
anything that contradicts what God says in his
Word.

The apostle Paul said, "we are the true
circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and
glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the
flesh" (Philippians 3:3). Paul was one who could
boast! He had many things going for him, but he
gave it all up. He said, "whatever things were gain
to me, those things I have counted as loss for the
sake of Christ." (Philippians 3:7). Paul could see
that trusting God is a "sure thing"!

Many things will take place in your life this coming
year. Instead of falling back on what you know,
what you have, or what you can do, choose to focus
on Jesus and place your confidence in him who will
never disappoint!
