Isa 32v17 – Do you need confidence?

One of the biggest issues many people face in our modern world is a lack of confidence. While this might not be obvious, it’s the underlying cause of much of the mental illness and addictions people suffer from. Yet why are we seeing such an unprecedented increase in loss of identity and self-confidence? We live in a world where everyone does what is “right in their own eyes” (Proverbs 21:2). Boundaries have been removed. Everything from gender to respect to family is seen as unnecessary. And with the loss of these vital boundaries is the loss of knowing who we are and a loss of self-confidence. Confidence is found in boundaries. When we lose our boundaries we lose our confidence. Thousands of years ago God said, “The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever” (Isaiah 32:17). If we put God’s righteousness as our immovable boundary of life, he tells us the effect will be peace and confidence forever. Not just in this life, but a confident inheritance for eternity. Today, resolve to make God number one, and discover his divine peace and confidence. Open Bible –,
