You don’t feel good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, or popular enough. You think your voice sounds funny. You don’t feel like you know enough about the Bible. You definitely don’t think you have what it takes to make a difference. You are completely uncertain and anxious about your contribution to anything and everything. You second guess your every move and doubt your insight and wisdom. In fact, you wonder if you even have any at all.
We’ve all been here. When you are in this place, this abyss of uncertainty, you are open to attack and the battle rages on. We allow the loudness of our insecurity to trump any quiet confidence we may have. After all, insecurity is boisterous and confidence is humble.
Here are some verses to help you battle through the insecure days. We pray you will see yourself the way God sees you for He created you in His image.
I will not worry about anything; instead, I will pray about everything. I will tell God what I need, and thank Him for all he has done. Then I will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything I can understand. His peace will guard my heart and mind as I live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
I will humble myself under the mighty power of God, and at the right time He will lift me up in honor. I will give all my worries and cares to God, for He cares about me. 1 Peter 5:6-7
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. Psalm 139:13-14
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. My old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17
It is God who enables me to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned me, and He has identified me as His own by placing the Holy Spirit in my heart as the first installment that guarantees everything He has promised me. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22
We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds me securely, and the evil one cannot touch me. 1 John 5:18
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within me, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6
