Don’t Let Your Insecurities Get the Best of You

I’ve gotta be honest with you for a second. Insecurities try to get the best of me in life, relationships and ministry. I’m my own worst critic when it comes to my looks, my writing, parenting and public speaking. I’m constantly picking out the smallest of flaws and making them way bigger of a deal than they really are. I’m sure I’m not alone, and I hope this post brings encouragement to someone in need.

Don’t Let Your Insecurities Get the Best of You

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about insecurities and self-doubt over the last few years it’s this: They’re both liars, and they will do anything they can to make you think less of yourself, your talents and God’s purpose for you here on earth.

I’m constantly reminding myself of who I am in Christ, a child of God (Galatians 3:26). Not to mention that the Bible reminds me that I can do all things in Christ, even conquer my own self-doubt and insecurities (Philippians 4:13).

Why? Because once again, the Bible has some life-changing news for me: The same power that raised Jesus from the grace lives within me (Romans 8:11).

I have the creator of the universe on my side, and so do you! May we fight insecurities with the truth we find in God’s Word.

We are relentlessly loved by God. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. We were created in the image of God. And we have a purpose in this world that is unparalleled.

I am a child of God, and I’m equipped to conquer anything that gets in the way of knowing my worth in Jesus. Don’t let yourself get in the way with the one relationship in life that really matters; the one you have with Christ.

Jarrid Wilson was a husband, pastor and author relentlessly sharing the love of Jesus. In September of 2019, Jarrid tragically passed away by suicide. He is survived by his wife, Juli, and his two sons, Finch and Denham. His larger than life personality, heart for all people and passion for telling others about the grace and love of Jesus was unmatched, and he is greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. We stand on the promise of Revelation 21:4 that reminds us that in heaven, there is no more sorrow, suffering or death. Hope gets the last word.
