The KNOW IT ALL!

A know-it-all is one who claims to know everything; one who disdains advice  Merriam-Webster

A know-it-all is as a person who obnoxiously purports an expansive comprehension of a topic and/or situation when in reality, his/her comprehension is inaccurate or limited Wikipedia

I got a bit stirred up by a question posted on my Linkedin group that asked, "What makes you confident?"

In an almost immediate response I typed out what makes me confident is...."Hiding behind someone who knows it all!"  

I'll say it!  I want to have a know-it-all appearance, but I can't pull this off!  Can we admit the truth and say we DO want to feel popular amongst our peers?  

I believe, ultimately, that confidence comes from knowing who you are because of whose you are.  To be in relationship with Jesus is to rely on and trust in the One who knows all about us.  We can be hidden in, or behind Him.  

For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Christ in God.  Colossians 3:3 AMP

I was brought back about 20 years ago when I pulled up alongside a pretty girl in a very nice car at a traffic light.  At my first glance, she seemed to have it all - the looks and the car!  Almost immediately, I heard the Lord tell me that is how I saw it in my own eyes.  But the truth was, I had a very real confidence because I looked good 'hidden in Him!'  With Jesus being at the forefront, I had everything!

The Lord will be your confidence.  Proverbs 3:26 NKJV

No one can be the best YOU.  You are the original, and God intended for you to live your life in full expression, because that gives Him the glory.

Are you a know it all?  Well, you CAN know-it-all based on a relationship with Christ. Today can be your day of salvation.  Today can be the day you give your life completely to Him, by asking Him to forgive your sins and surrendering your life to Him.  Allow Him to give you the best life you could have on earth, and eternity.  Don't miss it. 

Listen to his voice today.  If you hear it, don’t be stubborn Hebrews 4:7 NIRV
