Confident in God for HELP
Are you confident in God when you need help?
Sometimes help is simple: you can help yourself or ask someone nearby. But what about prayer?
Do you pray? Do you read through the Word to see what wisdom God has already shared that can help you?
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that our God is an “all the time” God. He wants to be there with us in the good seasons and the hard ones, and He will always deliver us. When you need to, don’t be afraid to ask Him for help.

Confident in God to HEAR
How frustrating is it to talk to someone who is staring at their cell phone? Or constantly looking away, distracted by a squirrel outside or someone else’s conversation?
And it also depletes your sense of value, doesn’t it?
When you talk to God, you have not only His attention but His heart. You can be confident in God to hear you when you call! How precious that promise is!

Don’t Ever Doubt
Sometimes we lack confidence in God because we lack confidence in ourselves or other people.
But God isn’t “people.” He is the Almighty Father and He calls you by name.
The cry of His heart is a relationship with you. (check out the sweetest promise in all of Scripture)
