My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1
“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”  Hebrews 10:35
Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald

Key Thought- Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”  Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT)

Faith is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence 
Confidence is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing. 

“The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.” Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV)

When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel:
  • Inadequate  --  Inferior  --  Insecure
  • eg. Moses (Exodus 3:11-14)
When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Only See:
  • Lack  --  Negativity  --  Impossibility
  • eg. Moses (Exodus 14:1-12)
3 Thoughts That Will Help You Break Your Confidence Crisis

1.  When You Know God Better, Your Confidence Will Be Bigger.
“God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” Exodus 3:14 (NIV)

2.  When You Know God’s Promises, Your Confidence Will Grow Stronger
“And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.” Exodus 3:12 (NIV)

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17 (NKJV)

3.  When You Choose A Confident Heart, Your Life Will Be Better
“Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  Exodus 14:13-14 (NIV)
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. 21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea...The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground... .”  Exodus 14:15-16; 21-22 (NIV)

“Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.”  1 John 3:21-22 (NIV)

“[ A song. A psalm of David. ] My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart!”  Psalm 108:1 (NLT)  *see also Philippians 4:13, Psalm 112:7-8, Hebrews 4:16

13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care!
