Philippians 1:66being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Can one be confident even though he lacks self confidence? Great question. My answer is Absolutely, positively, YES!
Here is why?
Have you ever searched on websites such as www.YouTube.com or www.WikiHow.com to find our the steps to solve a problem? You discover the steps, solve the problem, and, with your proud self, you let everyone know you did not have to call a specialist to solve your problem.
Well, if WikiHow and YouTube can provide you that level of confidence, how much more the God of the universe (who knows our problems before we can even call on him) can demonstrate to us?
If you find yourself frustrated, hitting the proverbial brick wall on solving your problem, maybe it’s time to press ReSET and seek the one who is the author and finisher of our confidence.
Let my long road be your shortcut. Pressing that ReSET button has NEVER failed me.
What aresa do you find yourself frustrated at this time? Here is your first step to solving your problem.
STEP 1: Note that it is not an area you have a problem …… it is simply a step along the staircase.
If there was ever a time we needed to be rooted, grounded, resolute, set, and settled, now is the time. In keeping with our theme for the year (“Set”) I vow to look to (rely) on Man for nothing; Be grateful when Man blesses me; and settled in relying on God (the Father) for everything.
23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven…. (KJV)
23 if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven …. (NIV)
We are living in a time where we may understand the clear line between “light” and “darkness”; we may observe numerous examples of the consequences of businesses operating out of integrity; our points of view may be clear; YET the ideas that propel us forward may be compromised by fear and ego.
During these turbulent times of 2017 we must turn to the ROC as well as ROI. What is ROC, you ask?
ROC is “Return on Character”….. The return we gain from leading with unshakable, settled, conviction of uncompromising truth.
