Boost Your Self-confidence in Christ

I shared a YouTube video titled, "Self-Confidence Is Not a Requirement for God to Use You", and the truth is, it isn't a requirement. In our human nature, we often think that our potential and success are only up to us. We think that we can only go as far as our confidence will allow. But there's good news, self-confidence was never a command to do good things.

However, many women ask the question, "How do I boost my self-confidence as a Christian? Is it okay to have self-confidence?" I think the underlying question is, how do I believe in myself and be bold in my walk with Christ?

Believing in Yourself

Believing in yourself is not a bad thing as a Christian, however, it takes on a new meaning when Christ is Lord. The Bible tells us that we no longer live for ourselves, we live for Christ.

"My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." - Galatians 2:20

The part I'd like to point out is, "So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God". We are called to place no confidence in the flesh (Phil. 3:3), however, we live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God. The reason that you can believe in yourself is because you believe in Jesus and what He did for you.

When you placed your faith in Jesus, He gave you the power to become a daughter of God. And this grants you access to every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 1:3-6). You are lacking nothing when Christ has provided everything you need to accomplish His will. If you believe this, then you can have confidence in who you are and in everything you do.

Remember The Cross

Ultimately, when you're struggling to believe in yourself, you should remember the cross!

  • Remember how much Jesus loved you that He went to the cross to defeat your enemies.

  • Remember that you have access to God through Christ.

  • Remember that He has given you gifts to accomplish His purpose.

  • Remember that you have His Holy Spirit to counsel you.

  • Remember Phil. 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Speak the Word of God

If you're into affirmations, I highly recommend using the word of God to declare your confidence in Christ. Battles are not won by your own willpower and human wisdom but by the spiritual weapons of warfare. Ephesians 6:17 tells us that we are to use the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God. When you're tempted with self-doubt and fear, that is when you do as Christ did in the wilderness, remind your enemy that "It is written..."

"It is written that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. It is written that I live my life trusting in Christ. It is written that God says fear not for He is with me."

Believing in yourself as a Christian begins with Christ. We are not confident in the "self" and all of our human strength and accomplishments; rather the "self" is confident in Christ's strength and what He accomplished on the cross.
