From where does your confidence come?

Pr. 3:26:  “For the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.”
How do we keep our foot from being caught in sin?
How do we keep our foot from being caught in the net of inferiority or the chains of society’s focus?  (i.e. looking younger, having the latest fashions, being sexy, being 1 perfect body type, being the most educated or monetarily successful, etc.)
How do we keep our foot from being caught in tolerance to the point that we no longer speak God’s truth?
How do we keep our foot from being caught in depression or oppression?
The answer:  The Word.
It can be easy to let these things muddy our minds; however, the Word of the Lord is a light that shines in dark places.  If we know the Word, then we know God, for He is the Word.  We must stay in the Word and daily gain the confidence that is of the Lord.  He will protect us, guide us, equip us, and build us up.  If we know the Word then no outside source can turn us from the truth.
Happy Reading!
