Go On With Confidence
"When you are cast down, you will speak with confidence, And the humble person He will save.”
The promise echoes throughout the Bible: God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5 ). Paul defines humility in surprising words: “Be honest in your estimate of yourselves, measuring your value by how much faith God has given you” (Romans 12:3 NLT). I watched a dad teaching his daughter how to ice skate. She was shaky, but knew he wouldn’t let go. Her measure of faith in him was based on knowing how much he loved her. She could do little to “help” him skate, and was humbled by the stretch of cold ice. But her assessment of her self-value was in proportion to the confidence she had in the care of her father.

OUR THANK YOU TO YOU
Thank You For Your Gift:
Often, we don't know what to say when we get in the presence of God. The Apostles saw that when Jesus prayed, power came into life — a light, a power, and a relevance that was supernatural. They understood that to tap into this power, they would need to learn to pray as Jesus prayed. Join Dr. Ed Young as he shares practical lessons from the Lord's Prayer and discover the power through prayer that can be yours today.
