"I have confidence in me" !

That may have been OK for Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music but it's a disaster for pastors in churches or for Christians in real life.

And it's a LONG WAY from what Paul said in 2 Corinthians :

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
