The Nigerian gospel artist Mercy Chinwo has released yet another uplifting and soul-stirring track titled “Confidence”. The song is a powerful declaration of faith and trust in Jesus Christ as the ultimate source of confidence and security.

The song starts with a repetitive chorus that establishes the central theme of the track – “My confidence is in You, is in You, I put my trust in You, trust in You”. The melody is simple yet infectious, and Chinwo’s vocals are strong and emotive. The lyrics speak of a deep sense of faith and trust in God’s sovereignty, regardless of the circumstances one may face in life.

The chorus is followed by a verse that describes the source of the artist’s confidence – Jesus Christ. The line “Looking unto Jesus, author and finisher of faith” is a direct reference to Hebrews 12:2, which reads, “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” This verse emphasizes the importance of keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, who is the ultimate example of faith and perseverance.

The next verse further reinforces the idea of security in Christ, with the line “I’m at rest because I have you, I have you, I have everything”. This line speaks of the peace that comes from knowing that one’s life is in God’s hands. The song acknowledges that life can be challenging, but with Christ as our anchor, we can be confident in our salvation and our future.

The bridge of the song is particularly powerful, with the lines “Before I call, You answer, Your love dey make me wonder” expressing awe and gratitude for God’s faithfulness. The phrase “one with you is majority” is repeated throughout the song, underscoring the message that being in Christ means that we are never alone, and we always have the majority on our side.

The final verse is a powerful declaration of faith in God’s protection, with the lines “You surround me like a shield, fairest of ten thousand to my soul”. These words are a reference to Psalm 3:3, which reads, “But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory and the One who lifts up my head.” This verse expresses the idea that God is our protector and defender, and we can trust in Him to keep us safe and secure.

Overall, “Confidence” is a powerful and inspiring track that speaks to the heart of the Christian faith. Chinwo’s vocals are strong and emotive, and the lyrics are rich with scriptural references and declarations of faith. The song is a reminder that regardless of what we may face in life, we can be confident in our salvation and trust in God’s sovereignty. “Confidence” is a must-listen for anyone seeking encouragement and hope in the midst of life’s challenges.
