27 Scriptures about Confidence

Skip to Scriptures about Confidence

In the Bible, confidence is intricately linked with trust in God and the assurance that stems from a life anchored in faith. Hebrews 10:35 urges believers not to abandon their confidence, which promises a great reward, signifying the correlation between faith and the anticipated blessings of God.

Philippians 1:6 beautifully captures the essence of this divine confidence, highlighting that God, who commenced a good work in individuals, will faithfully see it through. Proverbs 3:26 positions the Lord as the source of this confidence, promising protection and guidance.

This idea is echoed in Hebrews 4:16, which invites believers to approach the throne of grace with confidence, assuring them of God’s mercy and support. In worldly matters and moments of vulnerability, Psalm 27:3 portrays a steadfast heart, unwavering even in the face of adversities, drawing strength and courage solely from the Lord.

The New Testament, through verses like Ephesians 3:12, accentuates that our confidence isn’t in our abilities or righteousness but firmly rooted in faith in Jesus Christ. In the biblical context, true confidence isn’t self-generated but is a reflection of a profound trust in God’s sovereignty, promises, and His unwavering love for humanity.
