Faith and conf is nearly synonymous.

Without conf (=faith) is impossible to please God

Walk by faith (conf) not by side = walk/live by conf

Power of god travels through the atmosphere of faith

Faith = conf, when you have an attitude of conf the anointing can float

That God is with you

All my prayers are just excitable words. Celibrum

I got to have conf… the attitude. God you are with me. Today I am not here to
perform, when I lay hand, they will fall under the power of God.

Conf is the attitude of faith by which you conduct to bring down the glory of god
to touch people

Is not your human effort.

The biggest challenge in your faith walk/whole life is over the realm of level of
conf you carry/maintain in your life.

Mathew 4: 1 Tempted by the devil. Holy Spirit allows you to test your maturity.

IF you are the son of God, command this stone to become bread.

“If you are the son of God, prove it.”

The greatest temptation that Satan can throw to you is to lead you to question
who you are and forget that you are a child of God.

Jesus didn’t even bother to prove himself. Ultimate level of Confidence.

‘He was reacting in fear, doubt and intimidating if he react to Satan’s challenge’
and immediately he will be disqualify as the son of God.

Law of Average in News reporting that no matter what, out of the 5-6 good news,
they bound to be 1 bad news.

The moment you act on a negative motivation, you strengthen the motivation.
The more you worry, the more worrying you become. Vs the more you give on
the confidence/faith, the more confidence/stronger faith you are/have.

I don’t need to have the possession of the Kingdom to prove that I am a child of
God.

Mathew 11. To be the light of the world, Jesus befriended the tax collector,
prostitute, etc….

I send you out as sheep among the world. I am sending you out in a vicious world
with people who can destroy your faith… as light in the dark world. I send you in
the midst of them.
Matt 11: 2-3. John’s doubt.Jesus: Matthew 11:4-6. I am sorry if I can’t make
everyone’s like me, I am sorry I am mixing with the prostitute, to be the salt of
the earth, light of the world, sheep in the market place. I have to do what God
has called me to do. That’s confidence.

Key to confidence… revelation. Faith comes by hearing by the word of God.


Confidence comes by revelation.

Satan was tempted with self-doubt. It was not a foregone conclusion for Jesus
that He is the son of God that he can still be tempted.

Hebrew 10…come to the revelation that He is the son of God.

Revelation pulsated in his heart and faith begin to rise and grew in confidence.

Having confidence…. John 13… I need to have confidence… say Confidence with
Confidence… verse 3, and Jesus knowing that all things that God has given, 1. He
knew where he came from, 2, what God has given him and 3. Where he is going.

1. Know your position, I know where I came from.


2. Who you are in Christ… the head.. greater is he, what God endowed in
you, the potential that yet to be released. You got to know the power that
God entrusted in you
3. Then you need to know your purpose… what you are going to do with
what God has given u. your power, your position.

To be relevant and progressive.

Nobody can take away his position, power and purpose… John 13 4-5.

Confidence gives you the power to be the servant of all… giveyou the power to
serve. He didn’t serve out of worry – if I don’t do this, would I lose popularity.

How much more do I need to do… to prove… no matter how much I have done,
we can never fully pleased people…

Confidence is to embrace the ability to serve… to humble myself… I am willing to


do it because I know who I am, what God has given me and where I am going.

Confidence allows you to be an effective servant…

When you confidence is shaken, when you are challenged by Satan and the
world to prove your worth, your reputation, the key is to have a secret place in
God that you can turn to, go to, run to… that gives me the strength that I don’t
have to prove anything, that God is in me. He who dwells in the secret place of
the most high shall abide… Psalm 31… howDavid was going through a difficult
time…

Psalm 23: The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want… he makes me to lie down in
green pasture, still water… he will lead me beside the still water… ye… though I
walk through the shadow of death, yet I am not afraid. Becoz YOU are with me…
means relationship. Becoz I am in relationship with this Saviour who’s unafraid of
anything. When Jesus’ confidence is shaken, he goes to a place of prayer and
solitude…. Just “Father, … praying”. Dwelling under the secret place of the most
high… to nurture your confidence in God.

God has awesome plan for you… incredible, unbelievable… eye has not seen, ear
has not heard. The thing that can hold you back is not crisis… but confidence you
have in the purpose, destiny that God has for you.

Need to do secret place time to nurture your confidence.

Fortitude is the “strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or


bear pain or adversity with courage.”

2 Corinthians 6:4 – Paul says this “in everything we do we try to show that we
are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and
calamities of every kind.”

The way we demonstrate fortitude… that demonstrate we are the servant, the
minister of God.

Not to quit, not to give up… 2 Timothy 3:10 – “You have followed what I teach,
the way I live, my purpose, faith, patience, and love. You know I NEVER GIVE UP.”

Success… is going to failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” Winston


Churchill.

A champion is not someone who never fail, is someone who never quit.

How can you bear the load without being crashed by it.. My dear Senator, I am
not called to be successful, I am called to be faithful. – Mother Teresa

When you feel like keep on keeping on… how do you develop endurance…

1. Embrace God’s purpose in your situation.


1 Peter 1:7 – “These trials are only to test your faith, to show that t is
strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold – and your
faith is far more precious to God that mere gold.”
God want us to go through trials… to strengthen, purify our faith, our
character, our salvation.
James 1:3-4 – “You know that such testing of your faith produces
endurance. Endure until your testing is over. Then you will be mature and
complete, and you won’t need anything.”
Refocus… on the purpose rather than the pain of our experience. Romans
5:3, “we can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we
know that they are good for us – they help us learn to endure.” We rejoice
what the trials can develop in us – the strength of CHARACTER…
2. Nurture your spiritual root… Mark 4:16 - 17 – 4 kinds of heart – parable of
the sow and condition of the ground… “Some people don’t have any roots,
and they don’t last very long. As soon as life gets hard or the message
gets them in trouble, they give up.” “There is such shallow soil of
character that when the emotions wear off and some difficulty arrives,
there is nothing to show for it.”

You start of well in faith but you need character to carry on and finishing
the race.

Luke 8:15 – “The seeds in the good earth are those with good hearts who
SEIZE THE WORD and hold on no matter what, sticking with it UNTIL
THERE IS A HARVEST.” No matter the circumstances, we have to keep
holding on to God’s word.

Roman 15:4 – For whatever things were written before were written for our
learning, that we through the PATINCE and COMFORT of the Scriptures
might have hope.” Patience = Endurance… Comfort = Hope. Victory will
eventually come… when you have patience and endure… understand the
purpose behind and nurture in God’s word.

3. Direct your attention to Jesus Christ (God)


Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy lade, and I
will give you rest.” You look at the world, you get distress… look within,
you get depress… and look at God, you get rest.
God is much bigger than my problem. If you keep looking at how big your
problem… the problem gets bigger.
Hebrews 12:2 – “Let us FIX OUR EYES ON JESUS, the author and perfecter
of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its
shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

4. Use your experience to help others. 2 Corinthians 1:6 “When we are


weighed down with troubles, it is for your benefit and salvation: For when
God comforts us, it is so that we in turn, can be an encouragement to you.
Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer.” Period of
darkness, depression… God will comfort you and deliver you because God
wants to use you to encourage people.
Our greatest life message always comes out from our weakness, not our
strength. 2 Timothy 2:10 “I am willing to endure anything if it will bring
salvation and eternal glory in Christ Jesus to those God has chose.” God
will not waste experience or situation that you go through…

5. Rely on God’s power. Colossians 1:11 – “His glorious POWER will make you
patient and strong enough to endure anything, and you will be truly
happy.”
We don’t know God is all you need until you know God is all you’ve got.
Roman 12: 12 “Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder.” Learn to rely
on God’s strength and power. God will never give you something beyond
what you can bear.

6. Expect God to bless you. James 1:12 “God blesses the people who
patiently endure testing. Afterward tey will receive the crown of life that
God has promised to those who love him.”
When you go through a difficult time, God is going to bless you with
double of what you’ve lost. But it will be according to your faith… it’s
therefore by your faith it determines how much God can do for you during
difficult time. GOD I EXPECT A BREAKTHROUGH TO COME FROM YOU.
James 5:11 We give great honour to those who endure under suffering. Job
is an example of a man who endured patiently. From his experience we see
how THE LORD’S PLAN FINALLY ENDED IN GOOD, for he is full of
tenderness and mercy.
In Job’s experience, we know God’s plan finally ended in Good.
Hebrew 10:36 “You need endurance TO DO THE WILL OF GOD and
RECEIVE WHAT HE HAS PROMISED.”
