Be Confident

Be Confident by David Brandon

"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6

A number of years ago Keith and I were in Korea holding crusades. We saw God work in a mighty way, but as a young minister I had many questions and struggles. The most pressing was my uncertainty of whether or not I would make it in ministry.

On the way home there was a lay over in Tokyo, Japan. While there I took a walk to pray and read the Bible. My spirit was burdened deeply about the uncertainty of my future. My new testament opened to Philippians 1:6.

It was as if the words leaped off the page and into my heart. I was flooded with joy and a new confidence that what God had started in my live He would finish.

Over the years when I struggle with a new problem I recall today's scripture, then I am able to move forward with confidence that God would keep His word and see me through whatever came my way.

Confidence comes from standing on God's word and putting full trust in His faithfulness to do the work, His work, in me.

God is doing a great work in you! Be confident He's with you. He'll do it.
