Do you have a great deal of self confidence? Could you qualify as the poster child for the Dale Carnegie course? I know there are those that will respond in the affirmative! Others like myself may have times of feeling inferior to others and inadequate. Confidence is just wishful thinking. Well, if we do feel inferior or not qualified for a task, we do not have to give in!
“And such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who, also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life( 2 Corinthians 3:4-6 NAS ).” How about that for boosting your confidence?
God gave me a blessing concerning any feelings of inferiority. The ground is level at the foot of the cross! We all must come just as we are. None are superior to others; none are inferior. We can hold our heads high and face tomorrow!

Your last line reminded me of the song that has been on constant replay in my heart. "Because HE lives, I can face tomorrow."
This devotional is great. I struggle with these same issues you discussed and it really settled my heart today. Thank you for listening to HIM.
