Confidence in God

Absolute confidence in God is more precious to him than all of creation combined. To make this a solid reality in us, he overwhelms us with sufferings beyond our ability to cope, removing the innate confidence we have in ourselves, and replacing it with unshakable confidence in him, the one who wakes up the dead. In effect, he himself becomes the confidence that operates within us, the faith that operates within us, the love that operates within us, and every other good thing that’s in us. This is how he is becoming all in all, through sufferings, death, and resurrection, all happening in the spirit of his much loved Anointed Jesus, the firstborn of all creation, and the firstborn out from among the dead.

  1. “He overwhelms us with sufferings beyond our ability to cope” What an excellent observation. This is His way of building our faith and our dependence on Him. All done out of His great love for us. What a wonderful God we have!
