5. How to Overcome Insecurity- 3 steps


It’s defined as uncertainty about oneself, lack of confidence; doubt; uncertainty.

You can feel insecure in your friendships, your family relationships, and even insecure aboutyourself.

If you are insecure in an area, e.g. if you believe you can’t cook you lack confidence in that area BUT your insecurity may not be based on reality. Other people may think you are an outstanding cook, but you don’t believe that!

Insecurities show up in our heads as BELIEFs which shapes how we live our lives and how we view ourselves!

SIGNS you are insecure (just a few)- ACTS AS YOUR INNER CRITIC (Thoughts)

  • Low Self-esteem- you are not good enough for just about everything
  • Jealousy- she’s better than you (and u want to be like her but believe u can’t be)
  • Comparison (look at your life you should have accomplished more by now)
  • Fear (please don’t even bother you will fail and others will hear about it and laugh)
  • Easily offended or hurt (I thought I did that perfectly, but it wasn’t enough)
  • People pleasing (if you do this they may want to be friends this time)

An important point to note HERE is that insecurities are LIES that we believe about ourselves.

And we know where LIES come from right?

The Bible says in (John 8:44) the devil is a liar, there is no truth in him and more than that he is the father of lies- enough said.

How Insecurity Came Into Your Heart

The truth is insecurity can come from anywhere!

Insecurity may have entered your heart when you started doubting God. When you felt God disappointed you. You asked, you believed but nothing changed. When God didn’t answer your prayer the way you expected, or He didn’t answer your prayer at all.

You may have become misguided and started placing your trust in everything other than God the only One who doesn’t change. God is the only One on this earth who is trustworthy. Insecurity came in when you started placing your trust in things like your Degrees, your intelligence, Money, good grades, your health, social status, your job title, where you live, your friends, your family, or even your reputation, health, and or people.

Jeremiah 17:17-18 says, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”


Let’s be real we all get insecure at some point in our lives right? That may be true


Insecurity comes from a deep place- it comes from our past. It comes from our interactions in that past and how we felt and what we heard.

NOW, Each time we encounter a situation even if remotely similar or related our insceurities get triggered-our self-doubt resurfaces

Insecurity may have taken root because you may have never been validated or encouraged. Maybe you were shouted at, criticised, and rejected. Maybe you were straight out told you are no good and you would never amount to anything or succeed in life.

These things I just mentioned create that place where you are Uncertain about you. You question if you are capable of succeeding-you are unsure of yourself and your abilities. You are uncertain of your value. You are not important. Your feelings aren’t important because you are a NOBODY.

Ladies, these thoughts are always present-they never leave.

This lack of confidence seeps into every area of your life -whether it’s on the job or in your relationships etc.

Think about this-what’s your ROOT?

Find it, because we must DIG IT OUT!

DO THIS: Take a deep breath in- slowly let it out


Let’s dig out those lies


Do you believe that you are your Father’s Delight?

That He skilfully knitted you in your mother’s womb, that He was purposeful with your design? That He delights in you? Look inside your heart. That issue must be resolved in you so that INSECURITY can wither and die. So that you can begin to release the past and find significance, value and love in God. Start here.


Because you have a thought in your head doesn’t mean that:

  • it’s your thought
  • you put it there
  • it’s true
  • you must believe it
  • they can’t be sent packing

How? By Taking every thought captive or stopping your thoughts in their tracks 2 Cor. 10-4-5

4 For the weapons of our warfare are not [a] carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

Weapons-prayer, praise, declarations (speak)


Pull down those strongholds (of lies)

Cast down arguments (in your head) and everything idea that wants to contradict God

Bring every thought into captivity- every thought is scrutinised through Christ and His love

The enemy of your soul isn’t about to stop feeding you lies. You must be determined to take each one captive and render it powerless, inoperable and ineffective in your thoughts and in your life.

You must be intentional in walking away from insecurity into CONFIDENT LIVING.

Matthew 11:12 says

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

LADIES, You must be prepared to get violent or use force to gain your freedom.

Now you know

You can’t play dead you have to SPEAK, ACT and Be VIGILANT. Be VIOLENT. FIGHT


Your Father wants you to live in victory every day. He wants you to walk and live in purpose.

He desires for you to be secure in HIM.

It’s time to take action-Be violent.

You’ve got this.

God bless
