Confidence in a Dream
✍️ CONFIDENCE 💪🏻
I just returned from a life-changing conference and wanted to share something I learned about CONFIDENCE (which is absolutely necessary to activate your dream.)
It's the "lack" of confidence that keeps us blocked. Most likely, you'll need to LET GO of some of things you're involved with (and maybe even some of the people in your circles) in order to go where you want to go...
Does the idea of doing this FRIGHTEN you?
Often, we get LOST in the expectations of others, which then takes us WAY OFF TRACK of what we're supposed to be doing.
God will challenge you TO BE DIFFERENT than your peers in order to achieve your dream. It's essential that you're able to be YOU at all times.
Confidence is absolutely necessary for greatness. Is your lack of confidence a result of being "parked" at a point of past failure (or pain)?
If so, you'll need to stop looking at yourself in the same way that the world looks at you. Understand that confidence is MORE that just a feeling and that other people's opinions cannot be the source of your confidence.
Instead, confidence is received freely from God whenever we need it. Remember that in your weakness, God is able to make you supernaturally strong.
Confidence doesn't come from ourselves, our previous accomplishments, or other's compliments.
The time has come for you to personally ask God for an INCREASE IN CONFIDENCE in order to accomplish the things that you're passionate about. Then, be prepared to do your part in faith.
You're going to have to take STEP #1 without knowing all the details of STEP #2....
Sounds scary, right? But we must have trust in God's process:
You invest in you dreams by staying COMMITTED to the ongoing work, despite what others might say about what you're working on. Rely on God (not others) to keep going.
The, we need to exercise PATIENCE. It's important that we give our dreams some time to grow and mature (so that God can do His thing and involve the right people)...and eventually, you'll see rewards that you couldn't EVER have imagined!
ARE YOU READY TO WINK AT THE IMPOSSIBLE?
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
