The Lord, My Confidence

On what are you basing your confidence?

You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. … The LORD will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared. … Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. … The fruit of righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever.

I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. … I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

We have confidence in the Lord. … Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory. … In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. … So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? … The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? … So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” … Such confidence we have through Christ before God. … We have confidence before God.
