Rather than "self-confidence", self-denial begets Faith, and Faith Wins The Victory!

Someone had testified, "Self-confidence is the key: do you have it"?

And i responded:

Rather than "self-confidence", self ("I", id, ego, pride) denial begets Faith, and Faith begets self-denial! (Luke 9:23)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/life-or-death-easy-choice-however-to.html

For Faith Wins The Victory over sin, self, religion (except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), this world, and ultimately death! (I John 5:4, Galatians 2:20, James 1:27, I Corinthians 15:54-55, Mark 8:34, John 12:26)

And one's Faith needs be IN The GIVER of The Life that they received both naturally and Hopefully Spiritually as well, for each breath(Spirit, air) a soul receives reveals the source of The ONE WHO sustains our natural life(Spirit, air) and The Life(SPIRIT) as well!

So, "Call no man your father upon earth, for ONE IS your FATHER, HE WHO IS in Heaven"! (Matthew 23:9)

Not that which "I(ego,id,self,pride)" do sustains life, but that which i receive(breath{Spirit, air}) from The GIVER of Life, HE WHO IS The ONE and ONLY TRUE Living GOD and FATHER of ALL....... (John 20:17)

So, "You that are unable to do the least (breathing and breath are Gifts that needs be received for Life to be), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26-34)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

And Hope IS the "Born Again(of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT)" brethren of The Messiah will remain steadfast in The Faith, for we have our portion !NOW! in "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD On Earth"; and when we receive that final natural breath(Spirit, air) we will then experience The Life IN and OF "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD in Heaven"!  Forever.......  (John 3:3,7, Ephesians 2:8; 3:15)

"A Household of Faith", both "in Heaven and ON EARTH", indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10; Ephesians 3:15)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

Sadly, the "self-confident" worldly and/or religious souls have not received "a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own self ("I", ego. id. pride) life! And so it is they remain bound in the chains of "strong delusion" as they but serve time in the prison that is this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 7:7, I John 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html

TRUTH IS! "The "I(ego,id,self,pride)" Must Die for The Life to BE!

And in as much as i can 'see',
That which is of the "I(ego,id,self,pride)" in me,

So it is i yearn, and to Our FATHER cry,
For deliverance from all that is of the "I".

The "I", born of "imag"ination and selfish desire,
As lust, greed, and pride, stoked a consuming fire!

A fire burning out of control, as "I" leads the way,
It's smoke concealing the fleshly mind that leads one astray.

Yet even in the smoke, searing heat, and blindness of 'sight',
TRUTH can pierce the blackness of darkness, revealing "The Light"!

And nothing can hide from "The Light", so "Light" reveals the "I",
Allowing one to "see" clearly, and clearly the "I" must die.

But to live, yet die, seems an impossible task,
And so we need of "Our FATHER", the impossible to ask.

Help me to "deny (die to "I",ego,id,pride) myself" FATHER!

And HE does! For HE Reveals evermore of The Messiah, "The Selfless One", unto HIS "Born Again" children yet on earth! And as The Messiah testified so also do His brethren evermore REALize "I can do nothing of My own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)

Mahatma Gandhi REALized "i can do nothing of my own self" as well, and so it was he declared his dependence when he testified, "I have been a willing slave to this most exacting MASTER for more then half a century. HIS Voice has been increasingly audible as years have rolled by. HE has never forsaken me even in my darkest hour. HE has saved me often from myself and left me not a vestige of independence. The greater my surrender to HIM, the greater has been my Joy"....... (**i have great respect for Mahatma Gandhi, yet i but seek and desire to follow The Messiah on that "Narrow Way" that is "The Way to The TRUTH of The Life"! And i believe Gandhi did as well in his latter years** And other quotes attributed to Gandhi can be viewed @ the link below)

YES! "Joy!" in Surrender and  Self-Denial....... Not "self-confidence" but Dependence!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

And ALL the brethren of The Messiah have REALized the same, and so it is we "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:

FATHER Help!


So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
