What is Insecurity? Insecurity equals Prison. Webster’s dictionary defines insecurity as: not confident or sure, uncertain, not adequately guarded or sustained, not firmly fastened or fixed. This definition reveals a great deal about this behavior. What is it that people do when they lack self confidence? They are untrusting, not sure, uncertain, or doubtful, they remain cautious and hold back.
What if theses people don’t feel protected? They will attack you immediately.
Insecurity is a personal prison we allow to grow up around us, isolating us from healthy relationships.
Stop believing the lie that we are alone.
These invisible bars can be cast from many things: things from our past failures, our addictions, verbal, emotional or physical abuse, fear and pride.
On the outside we may look normal, we even smile as we act the part, try to fit in but, inside we are feeling worried, timid and even frightful that at any moment someone might see behind the mask we are wearing.
What is insecurity? Simply put, insecurity is bondage. Bondage is any thought or action that limits our freedom to think and do things. Struggling with bondage to insecurity often displays a pattern, no real sense of identity, which makes it easy to believe lies. The lies leading to an unrealistic fear of what other people think.
Oftentimes, we let insecurity ruin the most sacred relationships in our lives, let it keep us from loving freely, from accomplishing our dreams, from the amazing life God designed for us. He says in his word that He has come that we may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:10) Living in insecurity is not the life He chose for you.
Jesus did not bleed and suffer so you would be in fear of what other people may think.
Christ did not die on the cross to keep you from your full potential.
God might be calling you to do something right now!
You do not have to live in the suffocating air of insecurity any longer. In Ephesians, Paul writes that if we are followers of Christ, we have the same power within us that raised Christ from the dead. If that is true, why aren’t we living our life as if that power resides within us?
Make a commitment to be honest with yourself, dig deep into those forgotten places of your heart. Open yourself to the possibility of freedom, you will find it.
