Of all the things that may change about you when you connect to God, here is one that should fill you with confidence-if you have lived your life running away, this is not who you are any longer. Where once we ran from problems, failures, hardship, danger, and challenges, we are now among those who thrive in the midst of them.
With God there is no need for fear. With God you can be confident in yourself because the Bible tells us in What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
If you are in a relationship with the God who created you, no matter who you’ve been or what you’ve done or how many times you’ve messed up or failed or quit, you are no longer that person, no longer a part of the tribe that shrinks back.
