It’s amazing how many people I meet in life who live a life of insecurity. They don’t trust others, refuse to enter into close relationships, don’t want people to find out who they really are, and lose out in living life to the fullest. Insecurity is caused by many different things and I don’t pretend to be an expert in that field. I only know there is one thing that produces real security in your life and that is to know the love of God. You can develop true security in who you are when you realize and experience the love God has for you. (1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear hath torment. he that feareth is not made perfect in love.) When you’re afraid, you get insecure and hide who you are. You cover up, not just physically but emotionally. You build walls around yourself and pretend to be someone you’re not. Love does right the opposite, it uncovers our insecurities and opens us up to truly enjoy life and relationships. The only way to love others is to realize that God loves you more than you can ever imagine. Suddenly, you don’t have to prove yourself to anyone anymore, and your identity and self-worth aren’t caught up in what others think. Instead, they’re caught up in your relationship with Jesus.
