Believe in Yourself...As Much As God Does!

One of the prayers I am praying for many leaders these days is that they might believe in themselves...as much as God does! 

If only...you could only believe in yourself as much as God believes in you. 

He created you for a purpose. If His purposes could be accomplished without you, He wouldn’t have created you.

David said this about God’s plan for our lives:

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”     Psalm 139:13,16 (NIV)

God wants more for your life than you do. His plans and dreams for you are bigger than the plans and dreams you have for yourself!  

He has said:

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

There are so many “impossible” situations ahead for you. However, nothing is really impossible with Him. The things that seem impossible are very do-able, if your faith rests squarely on His ability rather than your own. It’s called FAITH.

God has said:

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20 (NIV)  

Don’t you see? If you could just simply believe in yourself...as much as God believes in you...it would change everything.

So today, ask God to help you believe in yourself...as much as He does!
