It finally happened!
It has been a long time coming!
But, IT. FINALLY. HAPPENED!
I finally rid myself of that demon called insecurity.
I got tired of all my pitiful reasons why
I grew weary
Hiding in the shadows
Ignoring the encouragement of others
Undermining my strengths
Playing the comparison game
And always losing
Because I did not trust
The demon that chokes the life out of God’s purpose for us.
Not because it is greater than God.
But, because we have given it total access to our soul.
Emotions gripped by the stranglehold of fear.
Minds mired in the muck of stinking thinking.
Will that succumbs to every whispered doubt.
Weapons all masterfully wielded by the demon, Insecurity
It finally happened.
I rid myself of that demon.
Suddenly realized to keep despising the God planted gifts in me
Is to shake my fist in the face of God
As though He made some mistake
The way He wired me.
To downplay those gifts
Is to devalue His sovereignty
His schematic for my life.
When I finally rid myself of the demon named Insecurity
Was when I finally, finally heard God say
It is enough.
Until you trust My plan for you
You will never really experience My plan for you
In all it’s fullness.
That demon cannot thwart My plan for you.
It will slow down your progress.
Undermine your witness for Me.
Listen and understand.
I Am with you every step of the way.
The victory is absolutely yours in Christ Jesus.
Do not cast away your confidence.
I Am with you.
Put on your armor
Let’s do this!
Forgetting those things that are behind me. . .
“Do not be afraid.”
“Do not be dismayed.”
“The Lord, thy God is with thee!”
