Walking with Pride or Confidence?

Walking with Jesus…
OneWalk: Under the Sun, with the Son

A thought…
“I think to many of us mistake pride for confidence. We all need more confidence and less pride. Confidence comes from our relationship with Jesus, pride is what the devil uses to separate us from Jesus and that relationship as well as others.”

A few verses…

1 John 2:16 NLT
For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

Hebrews 13:6 NLT
So we can say with confidence, “The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?”

A prayer…

Dear God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord and Savior. Help me to walk humbly in and with You; dying to my selfish pride and rising in the confidence of Your promises and words. An example of Your presence in me for all to see. Amen
