Grow Confidence, Lose Weight

Uncategorized Jun 09, 2021

What if you never feared what other people thought about you?

What if you had no problem with anyone judging you?

What if you were totally OK with them being wrong about you?

What if you took all criticism and negative remarks about yourself and learned from them?

How would you feel?

How would you act? 

Who would you be?


Take a minute. Really think about this.  

My guess, if you're anything like me, that your life would look drastically different.


Here are a few things I came up with if I could truly live this way.

  • I would be more honest and authentic.
  • I would take more time and slow down. 
  • I would walk with my head held high and my shoulders back.
  • There would be less doubt, so my focus could be on Jesus Christ more, not people's opinions. That means more praying, learning, and teaching. 
  • I would be happier and feel the freedom of being me.


I would be more confident in who God made me and the abilities He gave me.


That, my friends, brings us back to the definition of self-confidence.

Do you want to gain more self-confidence? 

Then let go of what other humans may or may not think of you.

That means letting go of comparison.

It means seeking God’s approval, not men.


“Am I saying this now to win the approval of people or God? Am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ’s servant.” Galatians 1:10


It is stated very clearly that if we’re focused on pleasing people, we aren’t being a servant of Christ. 

That's because if we’re pleasing people, we aren’t confident in God.

We aren't confident in what He made.


I know so many of you know this intellectually.  You know you shouldn’t care what others think of you, but you get so quickly tangled up in the web of self-doubt.


So, how do you start letting go of other’s opinions and build self-confidence?


Good question.


First, understand that I don’t think we will ever completely let go of what others think about us.  

If you struggle with self-doubt and the need to impress, I HEAR YOU.  I’m working on it daily myself.  But it is important to remember, you can work on it too!

That work is so freeing!


There are two KEY ways to start overcoming this need to gain approval.

  1. Awareness - that people-pleasing is manipulation and inauthentic. It is finding all the areas you change who you are for another person.
  2. God’s grace - He loves you no matter what you do or say. His opinion of you is so high, that he put you on this earth.



What do you think of God's opinion of you? Do you believe that His opinion is the only one that matters?  Do you trust God loves you so much that he is working things for your good? 

These are VITAL questions to answer.


What you believe about God's opinion of you determines YOUR opinion of YOURSELF.


If you have a God-like opinion of yourself, how do you think you would feel?


If you're feeling more confident, how will you act?

Yep. You probably won't be grabbing those chips quite as often when you feel good about yourself.

But that won't be the best part. 

The best part will be having an AMAZING relationship with God... a relationship trusting He's got this.

When you let God lead, that's when you feel better, act better and live a freer life.
