Growth In Confidence.

My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear of it and be glad. Psalm 34:2 NKJV.path

How many of us can remember as a child when we would boast about our dad saying”My daddy can do anything.” Soon, as we grow the phrase is repeated less.

However, for the child of God, the opposite is true, as we grow in understanding of the greatness of our Lord. As growth increases our awareness of His greatness, both in His love demonstrated for us and His power toward us, we will become increasingly more dependent on Him to direct us and enable us.Psalm 34

That is what is referred to as “walking in the Spirit.” Growth daily in Him, comes through a desire for a childlike worship—heartfelt praise that is vocal and visible in our celebration of Him.

King David who presented a vocal and visible praise describes himself in Psalm 131. “Lord, my heart is not proud, nor my eyes arrogant. Neither do I concern myself with great matters nor with things too difficult for me. Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time forth and forever.”

David describes himself as a small child, looking to God for everything in the way a child looks to its mother.

Therefore, true maturity is learning the childlikeness that looks less and less to our own wisdom for answers or to our own strength for results—and trusts the Father entirely.

Then, as God moves on our behalf, we will find ourselves boasting about Him to anyone who will listen. Confidence grows, and we find ourselves asking others do you know who our “ Daddy God” is?
