I read a devotional this morning that talked about how Peter denied Jesus three times. Jesus warned Peter this would happen. But, Peter had complete confidence in himself that it would be absolutely impossible. And as we all know the story, Peter quickly denied Him three times. It continued on to say that Peter needed to trade his self-confidence for confidence in God. Many times we focus on “self” and not enough on God. So, I ask you – What are you facing right now? Are there threatening circumstances hovering over you? Just remember that God promises to never leave you nor forsake you. Has God ever failed you? (I didn’t think so) So trade in your self-confidence for confidence in God!
Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. ~Jeremiah 17:7 (NIV)
