10 Scriptures To Battle Against Insecurity, Low Self-Esteem, and Diminished Confidence
Hey there! Have you ever started to believe the lies of the enemy when he begins to tell you, you are less than? That you are ugly? That you will never accomplish your dreams? That nobody believes in you? Well, if you answered yes, you are not alone! I struggle to drown out the voice of the enemy almost daily (as painful as that is to admit). In the spirit of transparency, earlier today I found myself in a pity party, that threatened my self-esteem and my confidence and I needed to remember the only weapon I have... the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. I have compiled a list of 10 scriptures that I believe are powerful, true, and worthy of repeating each time the enemy strikes.
1. You Are: A Masterpiece!
"For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago."
2. You Are: The Apple of HIS Eye
"In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,"
3. You Are: The Works of HIS Hands
"The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy."
4. You Are: Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
5. You Are: Loved With an UNFAILING Love
"Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!"
6. You Are: Hopeful in the Lord
"For you have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth."
7. You Are: Covered By HIS Power
2 Corinthians 12:9
"But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me."
8. You Are: Loved With an Everlasting Love
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness."
9. You Are: The Righteousness of God
"I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels."
10. You Are: Called By Name
"But now, O Jacob, listen to the LORD who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine."
I pray you take the time to write these out and meditate on them daily! This is who you are in Christ! And oh so much more.
As always, whatevr you do, DO IT ALL for the gloty of God
Love you much,
