POINTS OF ASSURANCE – 66 Assurance Way
Be your Confident Best, be Encouraged
- God sees the best in you. Shouldn’t you see the best in you too? Guess what? If you are a faithful servant for the Lord, truth be told, your triumph is His triumph! If you allow him to live within you, he’ll allow you to:
- Endure and be strengthened by Him
- Survive storms and long walks
- Thrive and Be Triumphant
- Gospel: Marvin Sapp’s song (“The Best in Me”) hits this point so well.
- In the Old Testament, David encouraged himself in the Lord. This same man also wrote a Psalm that speaks to being a Confident Christian. The 27th Psalm (2-6,13-14 NLT) tells us:
2 When evil people come to destroy me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. 3 Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will know no fear. Even if they attack me, I remain confident. 4 The one thing I ask of the LORD — the thing I seek most — is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. 5 For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock. 6 Then I will hold my head high, above my enemies who surround me. At his Tabernacle I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the LORD with music. 13 Yet I am confident that I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. 14 Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD. [Emphasis added]
