No quick solution exists for overcoming insecurity. First, we have to acknowledge we feel insecure. Then, we should try to identify what generates those feelings. Finally, we must decide to overcome that state of mind. Drifting into security is impossible; we must work toward it.
Having a sense of security involves more than just building self-esteem. Jesus Christ is our genuine source of strength and confidence. If we attempt to overcome our insecurity without Him, we’ll simply be masking it with our own efforts.
The way we see ourselves isn’t necessarily the way we truly are. Instead, we have to ask how the Lord sees us. To shift our focus from ourselves and our mistakes, we must get into God’s Word. Therefore, to overcome insecurity, we must first deal with any doubts we may have about the Bible. Scripture is so powerful that when we read what God says about us, our thinking starts to change, and we can step out of insecurity’s destructive mindset.
To continue the process, focus on the positive qualities in your life. Take a blank sheet of paper, and ask the Lord to guide you in an honest assessment of your advantageous traits. You’ll be surprised at what God shows you about yourself. But it’s important not to look at others’ talents to see how you measure up. No one’s like you, so it’s pointless to make comparisons. Our mission is to follow Jesus in the way He calls us individually. Consequently, we can look to Him as our source of security.
