Where do you find confidence? Do you look around you to seek favorable circumstances? Do you look within, seeking to identify character traits and personal strengths? Or do you look up, up to the God who created the universe and created you for His purposes? Do you rest assured knowing that He is in control and that you are part of what He is doing in the world? Confident leaders find their hope in God.
For you have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise you.—Psalm 71:5-6
Prayer: Sovereign LORD, I look to You for confidence, courage, and hope to meet the leadership challenges in front of me. I trust that You will lead me into the future as I place my trust in You. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
