Have you ever thought about the negative impact insecurity has on your life? At the root of insecurity is fear. Fear and insecurity make people do lots of foolish things.
The fear of rejection causes people to compromise moral values to be accepted by some person or group. The fear of change keeps people from growing, learning and expanding their lives. The fear of the future robs people of peace. Insecurity and fear cause us to make all kinds of bad decisions.
The opposite of fear is love. The Bible teaches us this. 1 John 4:18 (NIV) “… perfect love drives out fear …” When we truly know that God loves us and has good plans for us, we are set free from insecurity and fear. We are able to make better decisions. We are able to trust God’s care for us and trust the guidance God gives us. Love produces trust, and love and trust drive out insecurity and fear!
Are you secure in God’s love, or is insecurity controlling your life? Rest in the love God has for you. Trust the good plans God has designed for you. Let His perfect love drive out all insecurity and fear from your life!
