God confident

No temptation[a] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[b] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[c] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
 1 Corinthians 10:13

     Thats what the Lord gave me today. Temptation is everywhere and there always ready to devour us to break us and to hurt us emotionally, mentally, psychologically the whole of us. We commit mistakes when we rely on our self-confidence. Its useless and would bring us no where. But this verse suggests that we should and by all means cultivate God-confidence, for apart from Him we can do nothing. Everything from little to great things come from God and self confidence is for the hard headed and the hardened hearts, a real truth that everything is from God and for God.

      I stand corrected with the kind of attitude that I have. Its not about me, but its about God.Often times im too self centered, the limelight is on me, and today im reminded that my confidence is in the Lord. Learning to trust Him in every aspect of my life. I ended up making the wrong decisions and committed the same mistakes over and over again and I face the consequences, yes, I know that with the confidence I have in God I can survive what ever emotional turmoil I may have and will have.

   Its not about me.
   Its about God.
   I will not be self-confident.
   But, I will rely on God.
   I will be God-confident.
