Confident trust that believes God develops in a pure conscience. You and I believe Him best when we guard against anything that contaminates our conscience, against opposing views that contradict Bible faith. Instead, we simply believe Him.
Human opinion or presumption of anything, factual or not, that lies beyond God’s wisdom distracts from a sincere capacity for purity, from virtue that strengthens belief and refuses to accuse the Lord when conditions around us change in a way we don’t (immediately) understand.
As inspiration is drawn from the place of purity within, in the inner man of the heart, the opposite of distraction results. Pure, poised confidence concerning the Lord and His Word becomes the mindset, developed because purity of expression matures as we believe Him more and more.
Confident belief produces more and greater confident belief. When I “believe God,” I believe it will be as He said—period.
