40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: God’s Love – A Cure For The Insecure
Having the right focus – right heart – right perspective – right responses – and right attitude – are essential tools in victorious kingdom living!
Today, let us focus on conquering insecurities. Insecurities weaken our ability to receive God’s love. Our insecurities reveal that we long for affirmation from people, rather than from God. We must always remember that our value and worth is found in God alone.
“…That we may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 1and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. “
When we have been mistreated by others, we often believe that God feels the same way about us. However, God is not like man. God outrageously loves us. God ‘s love for us is not determined by our efforts. God’s love for us is not determined by how good we are. In fact, our efforts could never justify God’s overwhelming – never ending – unconditional LOVE towards us. God loves us – because He loves us – because He loves us! God is love!
Let’s face it. We will never please everyone. People will always find something to criticize us about. When we are mistreated, don’t take a wound. Don’t become insecure. Don’t try to prove yourself. We should never have to prove that we are good enough for someone else. You are ENOUGH – because God is ENOUGH. It is God’s strength that is made perfect in us – even in our weaknesses.
We must allow the LOVE of God to fill those empty places that we attempt to fill with relationships, success, and the approval of others. God desires to fill the voids in our lives. That’s why nothing else will satisfy us – but God!
Our value should never be based on our attributes or our accomplishments – because life is fleeting – things change. However, God’s LOVE for us never changes.
Let’s begin to see ourselves through the lens of God’s love. The way we perceive ourselves will directly affect our conduct and our behavior towards others. When we are feeling un-loved, un-welcome, and insecure, the Word of God will remind us of who we are in Messiah. God’s word affirms us. God’s word encourages us. God’s word reinforces that our worth and value are found in God alone!
Our insecurities are often rooted in the lies we believe about ourselves. However, when we know who we are in Yeshua, (Jesus) we never have to prove that we are good enough for someone else. Today, if you have been mistreated by others, allow God to make it up to you with His LOVE.
Our insecurities are often rooted in dissatisfaction with life. Such discontentment is a snare in our walk with God. We should never feel insecure about ourselves or compare ourselves to others, because everyone is blessed in their own way. Contentment is a gift from God.
Experiencing joy, happiness, and contentment in life comes from gaining a proper perspective of who we are in God and giving Him glory for who He has created us to be – imperfections and all.
Today, that door of betrayal – embarrassment – shame – humiliation – wounds – offenses – and rejection is now sealed shut by the Blood of Jesus!
God created you to be loved by Him. You are accepted in the Beloved! God loves you. God will never reject you. God is not angry with you. God adores you! God loves you skinny. God loves you chunky. God loves your smile. God loves those funny little quirks that make you unique. God loves you when you are good. God loves you when you have blown it. He understands you so well.
Today, let us be filled with the POWER of God’s outrageous LOVE towards US! The LOVE of God is ours! The compassion of God is ours! There is nothing you can do to make God love you less! There is nothing that you can do to make God love you more! God loves you because He is LOVE!
Father, please break off all shame, condemnation, and insecurities in my life. Please help me to see myself the way You see me. Please help me to see others the way You see them. Father, please help me to love myself like You love me and love my neighbor as myself.
I choose now to live in all the fullness of love which will lead me to my birthright ordained by Yeshua. Lord, please allow Your love to flow through me and touch others.
Lord, I repent for finding my identity in who others say that I am rather than in whom You say I am. I repent for seeking man’s approval over Your approval.
Lord I ask You to remove all insecurities, pride, selfishness, insecurity, rejection, and fear of rejection so that I can love You and Your children whole-heartedly. In the name of Yeshua! Amen.
Let us enter an adventure of experiencing the love of God. Let every waking moment be full of the revelation of God’s love for us.
Let us practice looking at ourselves the way God sees us. We must never allow negative emotions like insecurities, anxiety, fear, envy, anger, bitterness, or pride to define us. We must never allow the opinions of others define us. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to wash over us and wash away all negative emotions.
Let’s walk in complete love with one another. Never envy. Develop a ministry of completion. Find someone that you can encourage and help them complete their destiny.
When we seek God for value and self-worth, we will live a more peaceful life. Please view these life changing messages for encouragement and inspiration:
