What does it mean to believe in yourself? Let me tell you this, believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable. When people don’t believe in you, you always have the power to believe in yourself. In fact that is exactly what you NEED to be doing. You cannot expect to get validation or purpose from other people. If they give that to you, then great? But don’t expect it and don’t limit yourself because other people won’t see your vision. With that being said in this post I am going to tell you how to believe in yourself complete with Bible verses and all the information that you need so that you feel unstoppable.
And most importantly to let go of the idea that people should believe in you and know that the only thing you need to do is to believe in yourself. Everything that you have is within you. I do not care if they are family, friends, spouse, or your boyfriend all of them have the potential to rain on your parade with their doubting nature and if you feed into it you will be NO WHERE.
Just because people don’t believe in you, never let them discourage you from what you are supposed to being doing. Whatever it is that you are trying to do was put in you and NOT put in them and that is for a reason. And the reason is that you and only you have the thought, vision, and ability to carry out your own purpose without them. If you needed them to have faith in you then God would have given them that foresight. But since God didn’t then you must not need them to complete the task. Which will bring me to my first point:
1. To Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable and only YOU are required.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
The key point of believing in yourself is that you have to understand that you are the one with the vision and you are the ONLY one that is required to actually have faith in the thing that you are believing for. If you were to ask me, I had to stop telling people about my dreams or about the things that I wanted to accomplish.
Because I got tired of their questions, their doubts, and even their unbelief. I do not need their negativity coming for what I KNOW and have faith that I can do and therefore prolonging the process. As in the story when Jesus could not bring the little girl back to life because of all the doubting people around him. He had to sent them out of the room in order for the miracle to be completed because peoples doubts and negativity can cause your belief to be shaken (Mark 5:40).
And if your belief is shaken then your faith is shaken and if your faith is shaken then you then you will not get what you are going after. As the Bible verse says above you must have faith in what you feel you can do, even when you don’t see it and even when other people don’t believe it. And when you have achieved this, then that is the ultimate step in believing in yourself. Not only just believing BUT also getting. And you getting what you want does not require the faith or input of other people. Especially if you know that having other people in your circle will only cause you to doubt yourself.

2. To Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable ~ Case and Point David
As I go into the points of believing in yourself to the point that you will be unstoppable. I want to go into the story of David so that each step of the way you can see how David had unshakable faith and there was not anything that David did not feel that he could not do. It did not matter what his brother said, his father said, or anyone had to say about anything. David had something that I like to call spiritual cockiness meaning that he knew that as long as God had his back there was not thing that he could not do. And so it was a self fulfilling prophecy that David slayed Goliath and then ultimately became King. Something that was impossible to everyone but David himself because of how much he believed in himself.

The first time that we see David being overlooked is in 1 Samuel 16:7-11
Samuel came to anoint a new king and saw all of David’s brothers sitting there before him. They were all strong and nice looking and surely, the Lord has chosen them to be king.
But the Lord told Samuel, ˜Don’t look at his appearance or how tall he is, because I have rejected him. God does not see as humans see. Humans look at outward appearances, but the Lord looks into the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
3. To Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable ~Know Who You Are
David was not as attractive as his brothers, nor was he even called inside the house to be considered as king. They literally forgot that David existed. And even if they did remember he was apart of their family he must did not matter much because Samuel asked for all of Jesse’s sons to be present but yet David was not. But do you think that any of what his family thought of David mattered? No, it didn’t because if God has called you out for a certain plan or purpose than His opinion is the only one that matters.
After going through all of Jesse’s sons (David’s brother), none of them were chosen to be king
Then Jesse had Shammah come to Samuel. The Lord has not chosen this one either, Samuel said. So Jesse brought seven more of his sons to Samuel, but Samuel told Jesse, The Lord has not chosen any of these. Are these all the sons you have? There’s still the youngest one, Jesse answered. He’s tending the sheep. 1 Samuel 16:8-11
It does not matter if no one supported you, if they discounted you, or if they did not invite you. God will make a way for you to get what is owed to you, despite what other people think about you.
So he sent for him and had him brought in. He was glowing with health and had a fine appearance and handsome features. Then the Lord said, Rise and anoint him; this is the one. So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon David. 1 Samuel 16:8-13
So one may think that once David was anointed as king, from this moment on everyone would like him and be supportive of him. No. Not at all. Which will bring me to my next point.
4. To Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable ~ Don’t Let People Talk Down To You
As we know one of David’s biggest victories was slaying Goliath mind you he had already been anointed as king so surely his family should have known that there was something special about him. But nope, David heard that the king was paying a great reward for the slaying of Goliath and when it came to ask about it he was meant with the following comment once again from his brother:
When Eliab, David’s oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the wilderness? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle. Now what have I done? said David. Can’t I even speak? He then turned away to someone else and brought up the same matter, and the men answered him as before. What David said was overheard and reported to Saul, and Saul sent for him. 1 Samuel 17
Notice that in this situation David did not cower and go away and tell himself that he was not worth anything. And also notice that even David’s brother was trying to throw low key shade by telling David that he should be out somewhere playing with some sheep because that is all they thought that he was good for. And then Saul decided to jump in with his two cents.
Saul replied, You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him; you are only a young man, and he has been a warrior from his youth. 1 Samuel 17:33
But see this is where, the spiritual cockiness comes in.
But David said to Saul, Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine. 1 Samuel 17:34-37
You do not have to sit and be the emotional punching bag for anyone else and you do not have to sit and allow people to tell you what you cannot do when you are fully aware that you can. David was basically telling both Saul and his brother that even while he was tending those sheep, he learned some skills and that they did not know what he was capable of. He never felt inadequate because he was a Shepard and did not let them make him feel anyway about it either. Instead he decided to basically talk back to them and put them on notice letting them know that he and God had the power to do whatever it is that he wanted to do. And that it did not really matter what they had to say about it.
David did not say, “okay you are right, let me give up and do nothing.” If he had done that he would have changed the course of history. Goliath may have never gotten slayed and we may not even know who David was. Instead, he stood firm. He basically put all of his doubters on notice letting them know that they did not have not believe in him, he had God on his side, and not only would he slay Goliath but all that time when he was out there tended to the sheep he was also getting closer to God.
David’s brothers were not out there tending the sheep. David’s brothers were not out there in the wilderness allowing God to protect them from unseen dangers. David’s brothers did not know what David was capable of. But David knew. And his mentality was that he could show them better than he could tell them and so he went out and slayed Goliath.

5. To Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable ~ by Making other people a believer
To believe in yourself will make you unstoppable and when people doubt you sometimes you just have to shut people up. The best way to shut people up is to actually do what it is that you said you were going to do. It can be very difficult for people to talk crap about you and say you cannot do xy and z when you have in fact did xy and z. There comes a point when you have to stop talking, stop telling other people what you are going to do, and to stop looking for their validation and there comes a point when you just have to shut up and do.
Notice that David did not sit there and go back and forth with all these people forever about his capabilities. He said what he had to say and then the proof was in the pudding, it was time for him to put up or shut up. And up until the moment that David killed Goliath, Goliath started mocking him.
He said to David, Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. Come here, he said, and I’ll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals! 1 Samuel 17:43-44
AND STILL DAVID REPLIED UNBOTHERED. And this is something I like to call spiritual cockiness that I have a video on down below. But how David goes about things is the true meaning of what it is to believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable. Even in a place where he was about to die, or so it would seem to everyone else. David still had so much belief in himself that he knew that he was going to defeat Goliath.
David said to the Philistine, You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. 1 Samuel 17:45-46
And so Goliath did and that is the moment when everyone around him became a believer but notice David’s belief in himself started well before that. From the very beginning and even though other people doubted He never did.
To believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable ~ Final points
My final point is that if people don’t believe in you then let that be their problem not your problem. Who cares what other people think. Do they determine your destiny or do they have the power to giveth and taketh away? NO. And most of these people that you need validation from are not even doing anything themselves.
It is your life and you have to live it according to your truth and the truth that God gave you. Would you rather be remembered as a David or as David’s brother that no one can really remember his name and someone no one really cares about? Remember believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable. And no where in that statement does it mention that other people believing in you will make you unstoppable. Think about it.
