Insecurity! I'm not good enough. He/she is better at it than I am. Many folk see other people's success as their own failure. Even those people we consider successful have moments of feeling insecure.
We feel insecure because of what has been spoken over us; words of discouragement, and degradation, words that have fractured our identity.
The words that are spoken over you matter. "The tongue has the power of life and death"
God's words for us are greater than the words that have been spoken over you that have molded, shaped, and crafted your identity.
God says you are precious. You are His prized possession. "for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye"
As we face the day today, remember what Paul says in Romans 8:33. "Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies." And by the way, what God says carries far more weight than all the negative things said to you.
Have a blessed day.
