What God Says About You: Believing in Yourself When Others Don’t?
Self-belief is an essential part of a person’s success. When it comes to believing in yourself, there can be times when it feels like no one else believes in you. In those times, you may feel like you are all alone. You may even feel like you are going against the grain. But there is Someone who always believes in you, Who encourages you, Who never gives up on you. That Someone is God.
As a Christian, it is essential to remember that God believes in you and maintains a plan for you. The Bible says, “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV).
God has an incredible amount of faith in us. He gives us the power to rise above our circumstances and the courage to stand firm in our beliefs, especially when others don’t believe in us. God helps us to realize our potential, opportunities, and dreams. He gives us happiness, joy, and hope, even when others fail us.
Sometimes, believing in yourself can be hard when other people around you doubt you or don’t believe in you. But God will always be there to cheer you on and have faith in you. God’s love gives us the strength to continue believing in ourselves with confidence and assurance, no matter how many times we are told otherwise. With Christ’s help, we can rise above any situation or circumstance, no matter how hard it may seem.
No matter how many times we have failed, God reminds us that we can still get back up. He believes that we can rise up and soar. He gives us the assurance that we can do hard things—things that may seem impossible from a human perspective. When we are feeling discouraged, God will give us hope to continue believing in ourselves and the courage to take action.
God assures us that He is with us always. He promises to always be there to guide us and give us strength when we need it most. He ensures that He will never leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). That is why we can trust God and believe in ourselves, even when others don’t. He always has our best interests in mind and He believes that we are capable of great things. So if you need encouragement or strength to continue believing in yourself, look to God.
God truly does make a difference when we are facing challenges and seek to use it to strengthen our faith and believe in ourselves. He wants us to trust Him and use Him as our source of strength, joy, and courage. When we rely on Him, our faith and belief in ourselves will never fail.
The Benefits of Trusting God For Your Belief in Yourself
When we trust God and believe in ourselves we can expect unparalleled benefits in our lives. We can trust that God will provide strength and courage to persevere, despite our fears, failures and weaknesses. We will no longer live in fear, but be empowered to face our lives confidently. We will become emboldened to take risks that may have seemed impossible before.
Our walk with God and relationship with Him will become infinitely more powerful. We will no longer doubt the truth and power of His promises and His love for us. We will become more fulfilled, content and capable of impacting the world for God’s glory. We will become more resilient to hardships and difficulty, with God’s help.
When we trust God and believe in ourselves, we will open the door to loving ourselves more deeply, despite our shortcomings. We will be reminded of God’s grace and mercy, which will propel us to forgive ourselves – and in the process, we will be able to extend this same grace and mercy towards others. In time, we will become unashamedly ourselves, and can feel secure in who God has made us.
Believing in ourselves is a difficult task, but trusting God gives us strength and courage to continue believing in ourselves. God gives us the confidence that all things are possible with Him and that we can do ALL things through Him—even those things that seem impossible. In essence, believe in God’s promises and always trust Him for your belief in yourself.
The Power of Prayer In Believing In Yourself
An undeniably powerful way to believe in yourself is to use the power of prayer. Prayer is a communication vehicle between you and God. Through it, we open ourselves to God in a vulnerable way, allowing Him to enter our minds and hearts and change us, if only for a moment. This is why prayer is essential when it comes to believing in ourselves.
When we pour out our hearts and speak our fears, worries, and insecurities to God, we give Him the chance to join us in that struggle. He will offer us the support we need and shut the door to fear, doubt, and discouragement. He will also help us acknowledge our inner strength and abilities, embraced by His love and care.
When we feel lonely and like no one believes in us, prayer helps us remember that God is with us and will never leave us. By talking to Him about our struggles, we can honestly express our doubts and receive reassurance and peace. In time, we can trust in His faith in us and finally start believing in ourselves too.
Prayer can also reignite our desire to reach our God-given potential. When we feel stuck, praying can move us forward. Ultimately, prayer helps us refocus and look ahead, instead of dwelling in our past failures. Additionally, it can help us trust ourselves and stand firm in the reasons why other people might not believe in us.
The Role of Positivity In Believing In Yourself
When it comes to believing in ourselves, positivity plays a major role. This means that we must quiet our inner critic and surround ourselves with affirming people. We must pour love into ourselves and keep our spirits lifted in times of difficulty. This isn’t always easy, but it is always necessary.
Only when we are at peace with our thoughts, worries, and struggles can we reflect and honestly think about the things we believe we can become. We must believe in ourselves more than we believe others’ negative opinions about us. Only then can we take steps towards truly living our lives with purpose and passion.
The same goes for reviving a waning belief in ourselves. We must keep a positive outlook and surround ourselves with encouraging people. We must also look for ways to love ourselves more deeply. We must learn to be more patient and gentle with ourselves. Only when we give ourselves grace and allow ourselves to fail can we start believing in ourselves again.
Also, it’s important to be mindful of the power of words. Negative statements and words of discouragement can be incredibly damaging. That is why we must be intentional with our words and use our energy to build up others—including ourselves. This will help us build up our positivity and ultimately achieve our goal of believing in ourselves more.
When Your Belief In Yourself Takes A Hit
At times, believing in ourselves can be hard, even if we have strong faith in God and a been surrounded by positivity. Despite our best efforts, our belief in ourselves can take a hit. This is entirely normal and it’s important to remember that there is no shame in believing in ourselves less than we’d like.
When we experience a moment of self-doubt, it’s easy to spiral into negative thoughts about ourselves. This is not helpful. Rather, we should take this moment to embrace our vulnerabilities. We must be gentle with ourselves and give ourselves permission to embrace the truth of failure and imperfection.
Thus, when our belief in ourselves falters, we must remember that God is with us and that He believes in us. We must also recall the Bible verses that inspire us and the promises God has given us. This will offer us strength, comfort, and peace, so that we can find hope and the courage to continue believing in ourselves, no matter how many times we feel knocked down.
