Everybody has personal challenges that hold them back, hinder their progress and frustrate their desires. We all have “issues!”
One “issue” that afflicts many of us is a sense of inadequacy, insecurity, and for some, even inferiority. These feelings run like malware in our minds, keeping us from giving and being our best. They get in the way of our relationships, work, and happiness.
Insecurity shows up in different ways in different people. Often highly successful people are driven by their insecurities. They live with the fear of their inadequacies being discovered. This is sometimes referred to as “the imposter syndrome.”
Sometimes insecurity paralyzes a person and keeps them from any success. They live far beneath their potential because of the messages in their mind that rob them of personal confidence.
What’s the answer to insecurity? How can we overcome it?
Take a look at the following Bible verse. As a follower of Jesus Christ, this is who you are, Ephesians 2:10 (NLT) “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
To break free of the driving force of insecurity, we need to know that we’re a masterpiece of God. Think about that for a moment. You are a masterpiece! Let this truth start sinking into your thinking. Let it dictate what you believe about yourself. It will free you from the haunting, nagging feeling of never being enough!
