Two Kinds of Confidence

Morning Thought: Did you know the same Hebrew word (ksl) that spells ‘foolish’ also spells ‘confidence’? In Scripture there’s two kinds of confidence. There’s the false confidence of a con-man. He walks proudly, but doesn’t realise he’s about to fall into a ditch. Then, there’s the confidence of someone who trusts God and walks in the Lord’s ways. Be the one who puts your confidence in the all-knowing and all-powerful God, rather than the fool who puts confidence in himself. “Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him” (Proverbs‬ ‭26:12,‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
