insecurity = pride

Have you ever considered feelings of insecurity to be another form of pride?


The more I think about it the more I agree with it.


I sadly have wasted time tied up in feelings of insecurity; scared to move ahead and positive someone else could do it better. This happens when I take my eyes off of Him and look at myself.


God has never called anyone to anything that they are not capable of doing. He wants us to walk confidently in our calling. We should invest time preparing well, but when we have done our best we should walk fully into our calling. Fully into our Father.


If I was totally focused on my Father would I ever have time to feel insecure…never!


Pride = arrogance in our own accomplishments


Insecurity = focus on ourselves and our perceived lack of ability or accomplishment


A believer free of pride and insecurity would attract the curiosity of the lost creating an opportunity to share their faith! So join me in walking with confidence in our heavenly Father and all that a life in Him offers!
