The difference between Pride vs Confidence is vastly different. With Pride, there is Arrogance, Haughtiness, Cockiness. But with the Godly there is Humility, Assurance, Confidence, with Boldness.
Hebrews 4:16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. The first is to humble yourself in the sight of God and He will give you wisdom.
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
VERY Often when a Confident man or woman of God is being elevated or blessed by God, symptoms and spirits manifests through others. It can manifest in accusing the person of pride or it could be other accusations! Often there are spirits of jealousy, strife, contention, selfish ambitions, prejudice, hatred and anger.
These Confident ones are often accused of the very thing the accuser is, as a mirroring technique! To put the blame on YOU!
1 KINGS 18:17-18 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim!
It is a very vicious attack when the enemy uses especially Christians being motivated by the enemy. Beloved you must learn to turn a deaf ear away from their words! Forgive them, Release them, and Let them go! You can close your door and you also have the block feature.
When God elevates, the price is death to self, resulting in humility. However, as God raises them up to speak HIS mind and heart, their godly boldness is radical! They have no doubt in whom is at work in them and they are Bold as a Lion!
One of the synonyms for confidence is assurance. We can therefore define godly Confidence as: “Assurance in oneself in Knowing who they are in Christ and in absolutely knowing whose power and abilities work through them”!
I have also seen cases of people who are high flying bling wearing a Hollywood brand of prophet, which are no prophets!
True prophets don’t show boat for no one! Pride is a very dangerous spirit that prophets MUST learn to master before they can ever minister effectively.
True prophets suffer greatly for what they carry and they often seek solace as their preferred quiet time being alone. For a true prophet, humility is our hope and brokenness is our bread.

No one can choose to be a Prophet or have it given to them by the laying on of hands. Prophets are chosen and declared by God himself.
Numbers 12:6 KJV and he said, hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
True prophets don’t boast in their gifts, for those who are truly chosen and made by God in the furnace of affliction don’t need to prove anything or declare their innocence! God does the choosing and proving and He makes room for their gifts.
People like to glamorize the prophetic AND it has NO glamor to it! The brutal preparations of the true prophet must master many levels God takes them through as they learn to die to the flesh
In closing, don't allow everyone who comes into your life to speak into your world! Surround yourself with people who believe in the great GOD who loves and works through you Small people criticize big dreams. Don't allow your faith and confidence to be robbed by critical and judgmental people. Surround yourself with people who love and believe in you!
In God's Great Mercy, and Grace,
