How To Build Confidence In God’s Way?
Make God The Source Of Your Confidence?
We must take small risks to build confidence in God; for example, when we were young trying to learn how to ride a bike, we needed to get over the fear, and not be intimidated by the possibility of falling on your bike and hurting yourself. Training wheels often help for a short season, but then they need to be taken off. Just like in your life as an adult, we need to take small steps to gain confidence. Having someone to encourage you and point you to Jesus Christis so beneficial and essential.
When I played basketball when I was in grade school, and high school, which helped me gain confidence was to practice and practice. The more I practiced, the better I got, which gave me the confidence to compete in higher levels of competition.
Whatever you need confidence in your life, be prepared to practice and practice. Do not forget to pray and ask God for His wisdom and strength, because if you try to do things on your own, you will not accomplish the goals you have in mind. Another reminder that sometimes too much confidence can lead to pride, and with pride comes a fall. Keep yourself humble yet confident to know that you can do all things through Christ, who strengthens you. ~ Bill Greguska

How to Gain Confidence In God And Yourself?
