Confidence is a key to being all God desires you be, says Meyer. Being confident means, “...you become the best, most courageous, most positive version of yourself.” (61/1255) Meyer is quick to point out she is not writing about self-confidence. This is not about relying on your own strength and effort. Our confidence is in Christ alone. We draw our strength from God, trusting His character absolutely.
Meyer encourages us to see ourselves as God sees us. She reminds us of the problems we encounter when we put confidence in something or someone other than God. She explores the benefits of confidence in God, receiving God's love, living authentically. She also addresses cautions and helps us overcome obstacles like fear or opposition. Meyer has included thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter as well as encouraging Scripture.
This is a short book packed with encouragement from Meyer. This material is from her previously published book, The Confident Woman .
My rating: 4/5 stars.
