Jeremiah 17:7, 8
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (NIV)

But blessed is the man who trusts me, God, the woman who sticks with God. They’re like trees replanted in Eden, putting down roots near the rivers— Never a worry through the hottest of summers, never dropping a leaf, Serene and calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit every season. (MSG)

The life God blesses is the person with confident trust in him no matter the circumstances.

Self-confidence is good and helpful. It grows through knowledge and practice. It provides a base to build on for achieving increasing measures of success. 

God-confidence develops similarly. Trust God in what you know about him, his will, and his ways. Developing this habitual mindset builds the kind of life of assurance the worst drought cannot dry out and the worst flood cannot drown. 

God-confidence is built a moment at a time, day after day, over the course of a lifetime. 

God-confident people live largely untroubled by fear and worry. They are able to wait for God’s timing without distress or concern. They know from abundant personal experience how God provides wherever he guides.

Today is a good day to build God-confidence. Memorize and meditate on Proverbs 3:5, 6. Read these verses in the New Living Translation. The Message says it this way: 

Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.

What necessitates God-confidence in the day before you? Turn these verses into prayers as often as necessary. Feel your strength grow with every repetition. 

I will exercise God-confidence and grow stronger, deeper, and healthier.

Our Father, when I am afraid, when I am ill-equipped, when I am at my wit’s end, I will trust in you. You are my bottom line. You are my rock bottom. You are my all in all. You see what I cannot perceive. You understand what confuses me. You are more ready to help me than I am to trust you. Give me your clear direction in every moment. Place your thoughts in my mind and your words in my mouth. Keep me on the right track headed toward the right destination at the right speed. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3

let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”

Daily D – Job 2:13
