Do Not Cast Away Your Confidence

I hear the Spirit of the Lord say, “Do not cast away your confidence that you have in who I am. Do not put it from you in the midst of trials and tribulations. Do not look to the left and to the right when things begin to happen that you did not expect, but keep your confidence strong in me, says the Lord. Do not shelve it; do not set it behind you, but lay hold upon your trust and your faith in who I am.

For I know the day that you live in, it does not surprise me, it does not come unexpected. I have known of it before you knew of it, and I am yet the Lord God Creator of heaven and earth and everything that is in it. I am high and lifted up above all principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places.

There is nothing that I cannot do.
My arm is not short that it cannot save.
My hand is not weak that it cannot deliver.
My eyes have not grown dim that I do not see.
My ears have not grown heavy that I do not hear.

I know the days that you live in, and I am in the midst of your day. Keep your confidence in me.

I will walk with you, Immanuel.
I will hold you, I will strengthen you,
I will uphold you, I will lift you up.
And when problems come I will be your problem solver.

Do not cast away your confidence, says your God. Do not grow faint and weary in well doing; for you shall reap in do season if you do not faint. Do not let your heart become double minded within you, but as the day comes that you see and you say, “O Lord, how will I make it? How will I go through it? How will I overcome it? How will I? How will I live in such a time as this?” The answer to that is that you will do this by who I am in your life, says the Lord.

Do not let your confidence be cast away. But in these days seek my face as never before and let the strength of the Living God bear you up, lead you forward, and lead you onward to the things that I have yet prepared for you.

For I am the way maker.
I am the God that can make ways where there seem to be none.
I am the wall breaker.
I can break down walls that stand in your way.
I am the mountain mover.

I change not. Though your circumstances and situations and the day you live in would cause you to say, “Lord, alas, how shall it be, do not not cast away your confidence in me, says the Lord, and you shall see that I will be the Lord of Glory in the midst of you. And I will take you through and I will lead you on, no matter what your day is. I proclaim over your day, this is the day I have made. Be glad and rejoice in it and keep your confidence strong in who I am says your God.

Hebrews 10:35-38 (NKJV)
35 Therefore do not cast
away your confidence, which has great reward. 36
For you have need of
endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the
promise: 37
“For yet a little while, And He who is coming will
come and will not tarry. 38
Now the just shall live by faith; But if
anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.”

Psalm 27:1-3 (NKJV)
1 A Psalm of David. The Lord is my light and my
salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord
is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When
the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They
stumbled and fell. 3 Though an army may encamp against me, My heart
shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be
confident.

Keeping our confidence in God

Thank you for sharing that - we are encouraged and strengthened! The world seems such a shaky place these days and it is good to be reminded that God knew about it before we experienced it! We are encouraged to go on hanging on to our unchanging God whilst living in a society that seems to be so far from God and His ways, and often seems to have forgotten Him. Isn't it wonderful to know God in these days! We're praising Him with you!
