Here are 6 bible verses about insecurity that will help you renew your mind so that you become secure in God and in who He made you to be. Don't forget to download your bonus scriptures!
Proverbs 29:25 AMP "The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in and puts his confidence in the Lord will be exalted and safe." The definition of insecurity is uncertainty or anxiety about oneself; a lack of confidence. The second definition is the state of being open to danger or threat; a lack of protection. Insecurity is rooted in fear and worry about yourself which is not a state of mind God desires for you. Most times we fear how we're perceived by others and the Bible says this is a trap. Fear sits at the root of many mental illnesses and character flaws. These fears trap you in codependency, obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), people-pleasing, and low self-worth. But those who trust in the Lord will be safe and lifted.
Song of Solomon 4:7 AMP "O, my love, you are altogether beautiful and fair. There is no flaw nor blemish in you!" The Song of Solomon is a book of love poetry about fiances getting married. It's a picture of God's love for His church. In the Old and New Testaments, we learn that the church is the Bride of Christ. So as the bride of Christ, God doesn't see any flaws in you! The blood of Jesus makes you clean from all sin and flaws you think you may have.
Psalm 139:14 AMP "I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well." The word fearfully in this scripture means astonishment, awe, a wonderful and glorious thing. When God formed you, it was an astonishing and glorious moment. But it would be best if you didn't rave at the fact that your creation and birth were so amazing. The most important point of Psalm 139 is God's omnipresence and omniscience. When the focus is on God's greatness, your flaws become very small in comparison! Spending time learning about God's character, attributes, and love for humanity will crush the fears that you have about yourself because all of your hope and trust will be in His eternal power.
Philippians 4:8 AMP "Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]." Feelings of insecurity come from your thoughts. You are thinking about things that cause you to feel insecure, afraid, and worried. In this scripture, Paul encourages you to think about the good in every situation and think about what is positive. If you're feeling insecure about your looks, think about what is good about your body. The key is to think continually about the good so that your brain learns how to be more positive instead of negative.
Ephesians 2:10 ERV "God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us new people so that we would spend our lives doing the good things he had already planned for us to do." God called you to do good works on earth. But it's impossible to do when you live in a state of fear. The person you are is the person He is calling. You don't need to look better to step out on faith. You don't even have to feel better, you just have to trust God and believe that He can help you.
2 Timothy 1:7 AMP "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind, and self-control]." As mentioned in Scripture number one, insecurities come from fear. Fear is a spirit that God did not give us. Your fear of who you are, what you look like, or fears about life did not come from Him. Fear came into your life when someone rejected you, said mean things about you, or some traumatic experience happened. As long as you struggle with insecurity, you will lack peace. This scripture says God gave you a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind. Fear prevents you from being calm, and well-balanced, and prevents you from making good decisions.
