EP. 151: How to Stand in Confidence with Amanda Pittman

What comes up in your Spirit when you read the following words?
 
  • Confidence 
  • Insecurity
  • The Opinions of Others
  • Seeking Outside Validation
These topics are HUGE and so incredibly relatable as part of the human experience, AND our experiences with these concepts change and evolve depending on the season of life we are in. 
 
In this episode with Amanda Pittman we dive into these vast, yet relatable topics. I found myself wanting to ask all the following questions…
 
How can we stand in the confidence that God is good and Holy and perfect and that he LOVES us, and yet struggle with our own internal self talk? 
 
Why do I believe that God loves me, and yet I don’t believe I am worthy of love?
 
Why do I believe God is all knowing, and yet fail to understand why He would choose me?
 
What is the disconnect between my head and my heart?
 

“Acknowledging the truths of scripture and living them out in our lives, and even more in our minds are two totally different things. ”

We can believe things about God, without taking God at His word when He says things about US.
 
That we are chosen. 
That we are worthy.
That there is a plan for our lives.

Amanda guides us through some of the reasons why this is hard to believe: including social media, comparison, and lies from the enemy. She discusses context – particularly relational context, and how we often idolize the opinions of others rather than the truths of the Father. 
 
So it isn’t just about our own thoughts about ourselves, it’s about other peoples’ thoughts about us that can create this internal struggle. 
 
BUT GOD! 
 

“But God comes around us. God completes us. God came to the World as a man and died for us. The work is already done!”

What does confidence mean to you? Insecurity? Sureness? How about love? 
 
In this episode of the Mary Marantz show, Mary chats with author, ministry leader, and speaker, Amanda Pittman, about ALL of these topics and more. The two discuss Amanda’s book “Stand in Confidence: From Sinking in Insecurity To Rising in Your God-Given Identity,” as well as what your internal self-talk might be keeping you from.
 
They chat about:
  • Finding confidence in the Truths of already being forgiven
  • The disconnect between your head and my heart when it comes to the Truth of Scripture,
  • And how social media can be BOTH a blessing and a curse
