Sometimes I hear people say, “I need more confidence.” And I often reply, “You always have confidence in something. Be sure that your confidence is in the right thing!”
There is no such thing as a lack of confidence. Everyone has a full complement of confidence to draw upon. The more relevant question is, “Where are you putting your confidence?”
When you sit down to eat a meal, do you have more confidence in food consumption leading to weight gain or in the one Mind shaping and forming you in God’s fit and healthy image?
When you witness co-workers coughing, do you have more faith in catching a cold or in the truth that you live, breathe and work in an atmosphere of divine Love where there is no dangerous germ to fear, but only the health-catching goodness from God to feel and express?
When you pay your bills, do you have confidence in not having enough, or a keen sense of the abundance of Mind’s resources that meet your every need and never run out?
When you start your day, do you have more confidence in doom and gloom dominating your perspective or confidence in God’s allness where there is light and joy, peace and harmony, health and freedom abounding wherever you go and in whatever you do?
Each of us have plenty of confidence. It abounds in our thought. We never lack confidence. It’s all about where are you putting your confidence? Are you placing it in good, or in evil? In matter, or in Spirit? In error, or in Truth?
Place your confidence well and prosper.
“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit”
Jeremiah 17:7,8, NLT.
