How can you feel confident enough to compliment and encourage others? It’s hard to encourage others if you don’t feel confident yourself. There are plenty of things that can weaken your confidence immune system. It’s like every kids worst nightmare – being chosen last for a game. The Word says, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) Confidence comes from knowing you can do all the things that need to be done which comes from THE source of strength. There are forces that can inhibit you but a stronger Force that can strengthen you and give you confidence. This confidence is not boastfulness or pridefulness that puts others down. Neither is it false humility. It is a quiet understanding that the source of strength comes from a faith that your are fearfully, wonderfully, and uniquely made.
