What comes to mind when you think of having faith and confidence in someone? You trust and believe without a shadow of doubt that they will come through for you. This gives you a sense of peace and security.

I think about all that is going on in our lives and the world today. It’s nothing like having a certain level of confidence in someone that you feel you can trust and count on.

In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge. Psalms 14:26

Take a few moments to think about this!!!!!! His children will have a place of refuge. When we are trusting and believing in God we are walking in strong confidence no matter what!!!!


When you think of the word strong you think of something being powerful. You think of strength. You think of something being able to sustain this great force or pressure. When you think of something strong, you think of it being secure.

So when you fear the Lord, and have strong confidence in Him. You feel you can trust and believe in Him. When our faith is deeply rooted in Him we are standing firm on the promises, His faithfulness, mighty power and ability!!!


The verse also says His children will have a place of refuge. When the rain comes we can take cover, we have a place of refuge. And when you think about the word refuge, you think about a place of shelter. We all need a place of shelter to run to. When you think about the word refuge, you immediately think about safety, protection, cover, a place of rest from the storm. When I think about refuge, it makes me think about the wings of a mother bird. She takes them to cover her babies, protect, shield, and keep them safe.

Psalm 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

When we need a place of shelter, rest, we need to come out from the storm, we can find shelter underneath the wings of God.

Psalm 57:1

Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
for in You I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.

We can take shelter; find cover underneath the shadow of God’s wings until we have gotten through our hardship, and tough trials.

We learn to operate in this strong and quiet confidence from learning how to abide in Him. Regardless of the trials, circumstances, and the situations, we must keep our eyes on God.

You may need to come out from the heavy rain, and out of the storm. You may be in need of shelter, a place of rest for your soul, a place where you can just get renewed, that place is in God. It’s being in His mighty presence that brings this quiet strong confidence.

It cuts down on fear, anxiety and worry. Because we are trusting and believing in His ability and not ours. Knowing that all things are possible with God, and all things are working together for our good.

So I encourage you to start your day by taking comfort in knowing that you have a place of refuge in God,

Walk in your quiet confidence!!!
