But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7
What are you insecure about? For some of us, our insecurities come along with being a parent; from being nervous about driving our new baby in the car for the first time to doubts about choosing the right school, the right doctor and every other “right” thing.
For others of us, insecurities arise with the pressure of doing well at our job and struggling to not let the job we do define our lives and what we think about ourselves.
But as the verse above says, God is not concerned with our insecurities, but with the condition of our hearts. He created us to be capable, lovable, valuable, and above all, forgivable. So no matter where you think you fall you short in life, remember God created you to live out a specific purpose for your life.
How can you use God’s Word to battle your insecurities? Read what He says about you. Remember the truth of God is more powerful than any opinion or feeling you have about yourself!
Thank God for His Word and the access you have to Him and what He says. Ask Him to guide your thoughts to His Truth and not your feelings about yourself.
Read Psalm 90 in the Message translation of of the Bible. What does God say here about His relationship with you?
