What does the Bible say about confidence? - Encouraging Scriptures

Confidence is the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something or the state of feeling certain about the truth of something. We can be confident in God's grace and mercy as the Bible tells us, "So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6) Let us have confidence in the Lord and live righteously despite the wickedness and tribulations of the world. By faith, we can confidently rely on God to be with us and deliver us from evil.

You know how we lived among you for your sake. 6 You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. 7 And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. 8 The Lord's message rang out from you not only in Macedonia and Achaia-your faith in God has become known everywhere. Therefore we do not need to say anything about it, 9 for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead-Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath.
