Answer to your insecurities and fears…

by Lisa on August 12, 2010

Ever have those moments when  you don’t know what will happen next?  Fear is overtaking you?  Worried you are going to look like an idiot in front of the whole world? Here are some answers from our heavenly father…

I, the maker of heaven and earth, will:

  • perfect everything that concerns you (Psalm 138:8, KJV)
  • work all things together for your good (Romans 8:28)
  • contend with those who contend with you (Isaiah 49:25)
  • do immeasurably more than all you could ask or imagine, according to the power that is at work within you (Ephesians 3:20)
  • fight this battle for you (2 Chronicles 20:15)
  • equip you with divine power (2 Corinthians 10:4)
  • meet all your needs according to My glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:9)
  • give you grace that is perfectly sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9)
  • be your power in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9)
  • delight to show you mercy (Micah 7:18)

So Long Insecurity, You’ve Been a Bad Friend to Us“, Beth Moore, page 333

The above content was  taken from the book I just completed by Beth Moore.  It was a wonderful book.  The final pages talk of our trust in God.  We need not fear anything or allow anything to cause us insecurities when we remember the above truths.  I LOVE that!

You will recall I just wrote about the importance of trusting God, on Sunday.   It all goes together.  Why should I fear anything or anyone?  If God is for me, who can be against me?  Also,  ladies, please  remember the following truth.   I am (YOU ARE) a woman/ child of God.  I am (YOU ARE)  made in His image.  I am (YOU ARE)  good in His eyes.

The bible says , “She is clothed with STRENGTH  and DIGNITY; she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25.

I love this verse. Beth made it our “fighting verse”, if you will. Something to say, out loud – if necessary, as a reminder of the woman I am.

I. AM. CLOTHED. WITH. STRENGTH. AND DIGNITY!!

These are a few truths, from scripture I gleaned from this fabulous book!! I cannot say I am completely absent of all past insecurities. I still have some. I just learned some ways to start fighting those thoughts and letting go of lies and falsehoods I believed, for so long, about myself.  I have already seen a big change in how I am interacting with others and allowing myself to get involved at church.

Since starting this study, I have joined and am singing on our Praise Team, at church. I am actively meeting new people and making new friends. I have accepted a position as the Hospitality coordinator for our Mother Of Preschoolers (MOPS) program at church. Now, all these things may not sound like much to you. But, for someone who was as insecure as I, taking the step to make new friends, put myself up on stage to sing (in key our out of key), and on the leadership team for the MOPS program is huge. When you put yourself out there – there is a big possibility you could FAIL, look silly, say the wrong thing, have a really bad hair day on stage… .etc. You get the picture. What I am realizing – no one really cares about those things. Everyone else is too busy with their own insecurities. AND, if I am not obedient to do these things which God has called me to do… I will miss a huge blessing or may miss a chance to bless someone else.

So, I am saying SO LONG INSECURITY! You were definitely NOT a friend to me!

Finding this new freedom from fear and insecurity is SUCH a FINE THING.  Join Amy, at Finer Things Friday, and see what other people are sharing.
