15 Scriptures to Help You Overcome Insecurity
You question your own value or worth. You feel inferior or unsafe around others. You can’t admit your faults. You feel threatened by confident people. You are quick to criticize others.
These are all symptoms of insecurity or low self-esteem. While such feelings can lead to a feeling of sadness or discouragement, make no mistake: They are destructive and sinful, and will rob you of the blessings God has for you.
You were made to be free and confident in who you are in Christ! You were fearfully and wonderfully made, and God wants you to be bold, courageous, happy and assured. If your life has been plagued with feelings of inferiority, rejection or insecurity, it’s time to take the reins and get back into position.
