God Our Confidence

Numbers 14:9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.
My Journey, spiritual journey needs a mentor, a leader, a reason, a source of strength. If I have not gotten a reason that drives me towards my goal which is redemption or full restoration To the original state that God intended for us then i have no reason to live. Infact many have committed suicide because they have not seen their purpose in life; they cannot see why they are on this earth.
I find many words of encouragement in the bible, it has words that give confidence in our life reminding us who placed us here. The evil plan is to discourage while God’s work is to restore, encouraging is his daily work because that restoration work is a process and it takes long and it is easy to despares alo the way. Proverbs 3:26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. ‘Taken’ here could mean being swept away by the enemy. There are several reasons why God is our confidence it not just words it is in what He is and what he has done and still to do.
1. He provides what we need:1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. We talk to him he listens he provides according to his will. He undestands our need and wants knows what is good and what is bad for us. He takes care of us he knows we will be in need as long as we are in this world. So he is there to fulfill our needs both physical and spiritual needs.
2. He is the source of confidence in our sinfulness: before sin He was a friend a companion and his presence brought joy and loving fellowship but after sin we ran away from him and he came after us to give us solution to sin and death. That is only possible through Christ our saviour. He bridged heaven and earth, humanity and divinity. It made possible our restoration and coming closer to our creator. “Come to me ye who are weary and heavy ladden..” No more shame!
Heb. 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
3. He has not abandoned us: those who have chosen to follow Jesus he said “Lo i am with you alway..” ‘I will not leave thee nor forsake thee’ ‘I will come again and take you..’ are but few of the word of assurance from our God. infact his word is full of such assurance.
There is no better place to be apart from the presence of God, there is no better assurance anywhere else under the sun.
