3. The right kind of confidence can be built at any age.
If you want to build your confidence, consider the source of it. As Paul states in Colossians 1:27, “And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.”
The right kind of confidence—the kind that lives in you through Christ alone—gives you the assurance you need. And when you realize your Source of confidence, you can begin to build it at any age or stage. Here are the foundational ways you can build your confidence:
Spend time in God’s word—lot’s of time.
When you know what you know and why you know it, you build confidence! Know what the Bible says by spending regular time studying and praying through Scripture.
Pray fervently—behind closed doors.
While praying as you drive or do the dishes is wonderful, there’s something deeper that happens when you go into your “prayer closet” and spend time in sweet communion with the Lord.
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” (Matthew 5:6)
Worship—in Spirit and in Truth.
Worship music can boost your mood, encourage you, and even build your confidence. With or without music, your soul can worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. With a heart of gratefulness and praise, worship the Lord with gladness and feel His strength pour through you.
Fellowship with other believers.
Gathering with like-minded believers who are true to God’s word builds your faith and encourages you to move forward confidently. Simply knowing there are others who are seeking God and living for Him motivates you to keep going. Find your group of believers and grow confidently along with them.
