Psalm 3, A Prayer of Confidence in God

 

I love the Book of Psalms. Many times, when challenges and distractions come, I turn to Psalms and let my fingers do the walking through the pages. 😀 What is your favorite Psalm?

As we grow and mature, our faith and confidence in God becomes strong enough to walk through anything! He will equip us with everything needed to get us through whatever situation we are going through.

As we grow and mature, we can easily do these two powerful scriptures:

Matthew 5:44-48 – But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Luke 6:28 – Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

By faith and His grace, we can easily speak Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me; with confidence!

For our reading pleasure : Scriptures related to confidence:

Confidence – assurance

Confidence, true based upon:
God’s Word – Acts 27:22-25
Assurance – 2 Timothy 1:12
Trust – Habakkuk 3:17-19
Christ’s promise – Philippians 1:6
Illustrated – 1 Samuel 17:45-50

Confidence, false based upon:
Unwarranted use of sacred things – 1 Samuel 4:5-11
Presumption – Numbers 14:40-45
Pride – 1 Samuel 17:43, 44

Confidence, the believer’s:
Source of – 1 John 3:21, 22
In prayer – 1 John 5:14, 15
In testimony – Acts 28:31
In others – 2 Corinthians 2:3 & 7:16
Of God’s will – Philippians 1:25
Of faith’s finality – Philippians 1:6
Of future things – 2 Corinthians 5:6, 8
Must be held – Hebrews 10:35

Be blessed today! 😉
