Breaktime: Confidence

Confident
18 He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.  Psalm 55:18

David is so confident of what he prayed that he can now walk in assurance. David’s confidence came through faith and the affection of his trust in the Lord. The author is so confident that what he asked in prayer will come to pass, he can now walk boldly into today. He treats his prayer as if it already happened. David, the man who chases after God’s heart, is being persecuted, but he found peace in the comfort of knowing God would answer.

We shouldn’t be surprised when we are persecuted for being a follower of Christ. The battles will come, but we know we are not entering them alone, but consistently with the presence of God. The assurance and confidence come because we are not alone but protected by the refuge of God.

I wonder if David went to Psalm 46 and reflected on this truth when he went through battles. The fact of these verses will make an impact on our hearts to continue to face today. Knowing God as our strength will give us the courage to walk in the present day. We no longer need to fear the enemy’s plan because we walk in the certainty of who God is.

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging
