Make God your source of approval

The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge(our Hight Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!–Psalm 46:11

An epidemic of insecurity is stealing the joy of life from many people in our society today and causing major problems in their relationships. I know the effect insecurity can have on lives because I experienced it myself.I know what it does to a person.

Those who are insecure often seek the approval of others to try to overcome their feelings of rejection and low self-esteem. They are approval addicts.

When we struggle with insecurity, only thing will set us free, and that is God’s truth. The truth is that we don’t need to struggle to get from man what God freely gives us:love, acceptance, approval,security, worth and value.

He is our refuge, our High Tower, out Strength, our Stronghold in times of trouble and our Hiding Place. Our worth, value, acceptance and approval come from Him. As long as we have those, we have the most valuable things in the world.

As you look to Him, you will be lifted to new levels of freedom, becoming the confident, mature person you were created to be.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
