As you are endowed with power from on High, you are responsible for it. The word says, “to much is given much is required. You are made to walk in the Power of God.
Because of the call on your life it is common to have self debilitating thoughts. Not only do we have an adversary but the self is our biggest foe. Self says, “There is not power in you, you didn’t hear from God, This isn’t the way it’s supposed to be done etc…”
Dwelling on these thoughts can stop God from using you. Therefore the flow of His power “chi” has stopped. There are other stoppages but let’s first deal with the mind. Here is a short article on dealing with self confidence. Once you conquer it, the chi will flow…
Building self-confidence By Calodagh McCumiskey
“To build self-confidence, look at, and address self-doubt. Accept and look at your limitations. Maintaining confidence requires consistent effort. When we do a little of what we fear, live in the moment and rise to the occasion as required, confidence naturally arises. It is never arrogant. A truly confident person will always be humble as they are always engaged in the learning process moving in and out of comfort zones as situations and life requires. Confidence is built on accomplishment and confident people deal with life as it is and get things done. Through achievement of small goals and daily steps we make bigger goals possible. Confident people generally have strong values they live by. They do things that are not just in their personal interest but because it the best or right thing to do in a given situation even if it costs them personally.
Exercise and self-care help with confidence as they prepare us to be healthy and ready for the demanding situations life sometimes brings. It is important to be ready to fail. The biggest failure is to not try. Ultimately, there is either success or learning. Self-belief is key when trying new things. Think for the long-term. The price of long-term fulfillment is short-term discomfort, hard work and rising to challenges you face.”
Not only do we need to think positive but we must act. Allow Holy Spirit to use your gifts, in freedom. Be confident in the flow. Trust the power in you.
