I have discovered that it is just a thing line between confidence and arrogance. Most times people take confidence for arrogance not knowing they are wrong. For example, would you call a lion arrogant for refusing to eat grass? That would be very unfair because lions naturally are not created to be eating grasses, they eat animals (humans inclusive). As believers, we were created to be the best and to shine the most.
David had this understanding when he faced Goliath. His brothers took his confidence for arrogance. But they didn’t know that they that do know their God shall be strong and shall do exploits. Sir, I tell you, it is not arrogance for us to say we CANNOT be begging because I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
Of great importance is you knowing what has been made available for you in God through His word, because the entrance of God’s words gives light and understanding to the simple, and without understanding, it becomes hard to be outstanding in life. You are to study the word to show yourself approved.
Fabulous week ahead!
