Lesson #15: Have GODFIDENCE 

Standard

I was having a discussion with my sister yesterday that inspired me to write this post. I thought I made the term GODFIDENCE up, until I looked it up a few minutes ago. Anyway, I hope I can help inspire you to stay encouraged and have faith in God even when things are challenging in your life.
Often we are guilty of saying we trust God, but we actually don’t. Yesterday, I found myself worrying and stressing about a personal matter. I was filled with anxiety. Then I thought to myself, have GODFIDENCE. Confidence that God is working on my behalf. Whatever problems I have, God already has the solution.
According to tagdef.com, GODFIDENCE is “A feeling or consciousness of God’s powers or reliance on God’s promises; also the faith or belief that God will act in a right , proper or effective way.”
I really had to ask myself, do I trust that God will fulfill his promise to be there for me in my time of need? Do I really believe that the answers to all my prayers were on their way? By all the worrying I was doing, you would think that I didn’t. 
So I had to think, when has God failed me? The answer: NEVER. He hasn’t come when I wanted him to, but he’s always come right on time. Every problem that I’ve had, God has solved. When I look back on my life and think about everything I’ve been through, I know it was nothing but God that carried me through. I wouldn’t have made it this far without him. 
So I challenge you to really take an honest look at your life. Look back at all the instances where God has come through right in the knick of time. Think about the current problems you are facing; do you have GODFIDENCE or not? 
I don’t know what you are going through, but I know that with God you will get through it.
Be encouraged! Have GODFIDENCE!
Love Always,
