I Will Be Confident
Do you have confidence in God? Do you have confidence in yourself? Do you have confidence in the future? It’s a fact that American’s are losing confidence in themselves and the future of our nation.
A lack of confidence will destroy your peace of mind. It will assassinate every opportunity that comes to you. You will never accomplish your divine destiny until you crucify the insecurity that haunts you night and day. Begin to declare, “Even then I will be confident!”

Leah named him Gad, saying “A troop is coming.” He was part of the plot to sell Joseph to Egypt and later sent to Egypt to buy corn during the famine in Canaan. Gad later moved to Egypt and lived there with his seven sons. Jacob blessed Gad on his deathbed, saying: “Raiders will raid Gad, but he will raid at their heel” (Genesis 49:19).
The tribe of Gad settled on the eastern bank of the Jordan River in the Gilead region and agreed to join the other tribes in the war against the Philistines.
