Best Self Bible Verses

A Bible-Based Guide to Cultivating Confidence and Boldness in Women

This page is dedicated to understanding God's purpose for your life, finding confidence in that purpose, and gaining boldness by believing and trusting in God. I have amassed a collection of short inspirational quotes, Scripture verses, and wise sayings on this topic and I share some of them below. I literally have binders and notebooks full of these little wise sayings! Whenever I hear something or a thought comes to me that I want to mull over later, I jot it down on a scrap paper and toss it in my binder! Someday, I will get to typing them all down, but for now, I give you a sample ☺

 

My optimistic, hopeful self prays that you will be forever changed when reading these quotes and verses! So, may God's light be shed abroad in your heart while you read, think, pray, and meditate on any of the wise words that may stick out to you! Oh, how we need the light of God's holy word to shine on us during hard times, don't we? "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path." Sometimes our heart aches so badly and we feel lost, then, we read a Bible verse or listen to a testimony that renews our hope, and puts everything into perspective --That's the power of God's spirit blessing us and directing our ways!

Find Your Confidence & Boldness in the Lord

My Sun & Shade Ministries is passionate about spreading cheer to Christian women who need a fresh word of encouragement! Be confident in who you are in Christ, and have hope for your future! Do not let discouragement weigh you down anymore. Satan seeks to destroy your hope by playing with your emotions and causing you to believe lies about yourself and about others.

Stand Firm in Your Faith

It's so easy to lose hope in what you feel God has called you to do, but you must stand firm in your faith. God's word says to cast our burdens, anxieties, grievances, offenses, cares, and fears off on Him and He will be your strength when you are weak.  If you feel called to a certain ministry, and it just isn't happening the way you thought it would, then use this as an opportunity to exercise your faith in God. Write those issues down on a piece of paper, offer the paper up to the Lord, then crumple it up and throw it in the trash. When you cast the paper onto the Lord, resolve within yourself to trust Him with those things that were written on the paper. Believe He will meet with you according to His will and then, be at peace.

Find Freedom in Believing God's Word to Be True

As you learn to trust the Lord with your whole heart, and lean not on your own understanding of what you think you are called to do, but acknowledge God's ways are higher than your ways, and His thoughts are higher than your thoughts, THEN the Lord will give you wisdom and understanding, and direct all of your ways. Do you want to walk in wisdom? Do you want understanding on how to live? Without this blessing from God, you will make presumptuous decisions about your life based upon your own understanding, not God's divine direction.

How can you you receive God's blessing on your life today? Here is the answer: By humbly opening your heart to the Lord, and asking Him to help you. It is a very simple thing to do, but most people find it hard to believe. 

 

Find freedom in believing God's Word to be true. He has a purpose and a plan for every person who loves Him, and, usually, what He has purposed for our life is much different than what we have imagined for ourselves. 

Discover Your Courage and Brighten Your Future 

Fear may be the one thing that is stopping you from functioning in the gifts God has given you, and if this is the case, you need to pray and ask the Lord for a release in your spirit. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of boldness in the Holy Ghost. We are filled with the Holy Spirit that we might have boldness to preach the gospel and to use the talents God has given to minister to others. Speak these things and declare victory: "I am not ashamed be a Christian," and "I am not afraid to use my talents to glorify God." Receive boldness, power, and a sound mind through the filling of God's spirit today.

Exercise: Commit this Bible verse to memory:

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

(​2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV)

Believe God's Spirit Will Empower You

So many people profess to be called Christians, but don't follow anything that is written in the Bible. But, you can pray the Lord enlightens your understanding of how to conduct your life as a Christian woman, so to bring glory and honor to His name. His spirit will begin to direct you on matters of the heart that affect your countenance, your words and your actions. Living a life of a Christian brings such assurance when we walk in God's ways. When we know He is pleased with us, nothing can come against us, for we know the Lord is on our side.

Exercise: Study the following portion of Scripture for further edification:

 What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

 

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(Romans 8:31-39 NIV)
