How can I boost my confidence?” Judging by Google search results, lots of people ask that question. It’s understandable, because confidence is a fantastic feeling and a huge help in life. A survey of search results reveal that most people are looking for self-confidence, self-assurance. Various techniques are suggested: visualize yourself as you want to be; affirm yourself; do one thing that scares you every day, and so on. That’s all fairly flaky, isn’t it? Are there better ways to find better confidence? 

Yes, Psalm 16 assures us that God wants us to have confidence; not self-confidence, though, but God-confidence. It’s message is: Boost your confidence by reducing your self-confidence and increasing your God-confidence.
