Proverbs 26:12 "Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him."ESV

So, it's not okay to be confident in yourself? That's not what's said here. There is a huge difference between being confident and being wise in your own eyes. A confident person will still listen and seek knowledge in what ever their doing. They will also realize they don't know all and if their a Christian, they will always be seeking wisdom from God. But a person who is wise in their own eyes will see no need in any of that and most especially no need in God. Self confidence for a Christian comes from just that. The knowledge that God is always with you and for you. That you can ask Him anything and He will answer. It is knowing you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you (Phillipians 4:13 ESV). There is not any expectancy (hope) for anything for the one who doesn't see a need for Jesus.
