confidence changes everything

Everyone deals with fear.  Fear of the dark.  Fear of high places.  Fear of rejection.  There are all kinds of fear, yet there is something that replaces our fear if we will let it.  It is confidence.  It is faith in God.
Romans 8:37-28 NLT
No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
  And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love…
Whatever your perspective, God can change it.  He will also turn your fear into faith, your issues into confidence and your life into something that will go through tough or uncertain times.  Fear can be overcome.  As Paul wrote in the verses above, he was convinced that nothing could or would change God’s love or God’s presence in our lives.  That is big time confidence. 
Why is that some people don’t believe what God promises?  It could be because faith is something we can’t see with our eyes or feels with our hands.  Faith is deep in our hearts that comes out through our brains and our actions as well as impacting our feelings.
I pray that God will give us real confidence to deal with all our uncertainty and our fears.  Victory and success come only as we trust God.  Confidence changes everything.  Let God give you radical confidence in Him!
1 John 4:18 (NLT)
Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.
