Phil. 3:3 ...put no confidence or dependence on what we are in the flesh and on outward privileges and physical advantages and external appearances. Being confident in yourself can be a double-edged sword. Confidence in one's self and one's abilities, but giving no regard to the One Who made you is not wise. Any talent, gifting, ability we have is because God, our Creator, put those things on the inside of us. He uniquely designed each and every human being. In and of ourselves we can do nothing and we are nothing. You can draw your next breath because He is the Life Giver. On the other hand, God needs us to be so confident in who He created us to be and what He has called us to do, that we fearlessly walk out our God given destiny. Our confidence doesn't rest in our strength and ability, but in the strength, power, and grace of God on our lives to tackle anything that would stand in our way. Be confident in who you are in Him!
