Self esteem can be good if it is in the right balance. If you have talent, people will know it. You do not have to go around preaching it to them. Too much self esteem makes you look silly. People do not like to be around someone that is always telling others how good they are.
For the Christian, the confidence is in the Lord Jesus Christ and His abilities. Christ can do things through you, if you let Him be in control. God gave you talents, and you then choose how to use them. But you must remember to give God the credit.
God will give you faith. That faith can grow as you exercise your spiritual muscles. People with great faith have learned to trust God more and more. Your faith in people can grow as you get to know them. That faith can shrink as some people let you down and disappoint you. The amount of faith you have is seen in your actions more than in your words.
Do you have faith in God’s Word, the Bible? Study it today. That will give you more faith.
