Most of us know what it’s like to feel insecure, to feel like we just aren’t up to a particular challenge. Maybe you just got hired for a job you aren’t sure you can handle. Or you’re dating someone and are nervous about living up to family expectations. Or you’re a parent, and you’re worried that you just don’t have what it takes.
Ironically enough, the way out of our insecurities isn’t found in us. It isn’t even found by resolving our difficulties and answering our questions. It’s found when we are confronted by the sheer fact that God is. Only when we see God for who he is can we begin to understand our true identity.
