It is no gainsying that the degree of our confidence has a "mysterious" link to the size of our wallet. We may not notice this when the wallet is always full. But it suddenly comes into reckoning when we experience a depletion of the size of our wallet.
But on closer inspection, we can see that it is not really the size of our wallet that is the issue but the source. That is, even when our wallet is to our own standards, rather on the thin or skinny side, we may still have a degree of confidence that goes beyond the size.
This is because our confidence may not link to the size but the source.
If you have just a hundred of what ever currency unit and no credit card, and to your eyes that is really small, your confidence will definitely still be strong if there is a hundred thousand somewhere. That is, if the source of that wallet that only has a hundred in it is a hundred thousand somewhere, you will still walk and talk and be as confident as someone that has a hundred thousand.
It is the source that gives you confidence and not the size.
Your pocket and your wallet may even be without a dime but if you have a million somewhere, it will reflect in the way you are talking or handling an issue that is somehow connected to money. This is interesting.
"In quietness and confidence shall your strenght be"
This is really interesting because what this behaviour is saying in effect is that if we can get to know the source i.e. what we have in our 'account', it will have a direct impact on our confidence and will show in how we relate and handle things.
It is not what you have at hand that is the issue but what you have coming. It is not the amount in the wallet but what you know is coming into that wallet that gives you the confidence.
This is why someone might have a considerably fat wallet but because they know that the source has just been cut off maybe through job loss, they are still really not as confident as their wallet would suggest they should be.
Saul was king and ruled as king but he knew he had been cut off from the source and his confidence was very low even though he was king. It is not what you are now that is the issue but whether the connection is still there. It is not the size of your wallet that counts but the security of the connection you have.
"He waketh me up morning by morning.."
The connection is the key to one's confidence. It is not even what happened yesterday or past glories but your connection presently. Imagine if we can look beyond the size of our purse/wallet and know the amount in our accounts? Imagine if we can actually walk with this as it has to do with its spiritual implication? Imagine.
