At some stage in our lives many of us may have considered a particular profession, only to pull away in another direction due to lack of confidence. Whilst it’s vital to be realistic about our options and to understand what really suits our natural ability, personality and circumstances, it’s equally important that we don’t allow a lack of confidence to dictate our next move.
'Experience tells you what to do; confidence allows you to do it.’
When God called Gideon to sort out Israel’s problems this reluctant hero needed a big confidence boost. To encourage him, God told Gideon (Judges 7 9-10) to go down to the enemy’s camp at night and spy on his foe before attacking them. There’s something about learning about your enemy (or the person or organisation you’re targeting) in advance that gives you a cutting edges in the competition stakes. It certainly worked for Gideon!
