rebus suis

In LLPSI Cap XXXIX Orbig scribit:

Aeneas salutem sperare ausus est et rebus suis confidere: nam regimam opperiens, dum in ingenti templo singula opera lustrat, vidit imagines belli Troiani ordine pictas.

Quid est 'rebus suis'? Ablativus? Dativus? Aeneas se confisus est?

Aut dativo aut ablativo servit istud verbum, confido.

Either dative or ablative. Confido takes either (though rarely the ablative with a personal object, according to L&S).

"Aeneas sibi confisus est"; rarè "se confisus est" personale cum pronomine, secundum L&S
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
