As a woman, I must confess that I have my insecurities and occasionally experience self-doubt. I especially dealt with this during my preadolescent years, and many of you probably can relate. It was an awkward time. I hated that I grew so fast, surpassing not only the other girls but also most of the boys in my school. My shyness and lack of self-assurance magnified the insecurities. Even in adulthood, traces of these former insecurities can be found, occasionally showing up again to undermine my confidence.
As I continue to nurture my faith, listen to Sunday morning sermons, and read God’s word, I am mindful of the devil’s tricks to fill my mind with feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. He wants me to feel bad about myself, insecure, and discouraged. It becomes necessary to affirm my true identity and worth.
I am a child of the most high. There is none higher or greater than Him. I am created in His image. What a blessing and honor to be created in the image of the Almighty. That alone should make me feel special. I am victorious because through Jesus all battles have been won. Jesus has already defeated the enemy. That should be enough for me to remove that self-doubt, insecurity, and low self-esteem. It should motivate me to hold my head high and approach life with the mindset of a winner.
When you’re feeling down and discouraged, keep in mind that you are embraced by a loving and powerful God. Through His strength, you have the ability to overcome any obstacle. Through him, you are a conqueror. Through him, you are victorious and a winner.
Remember who God is, so you never forget who you are!
