The enemy’s weapons: Insecurity

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 15:06

Insecurity can mean several things. Here we will talk about insecurity in the meaning of being shy or timid, or having a low self-esteem.

Gideon is a good example of a person having a low self-esteem. When God called him to service, he spoke disparaging words about himself.

Judg. 6:14-15
14 The LORD turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
15 “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.”

Is insecurity an attack from the enemy?

Sometimes you may feel insecure among people you meet, for example, before people in high positions, or celebrities. Although you normally are not afraid of expressing your views among your friends, you suddenly feel shy, and become silent around others. Isn’t that just human nature? Or, is it an attack from the enemy? We must understand that the enemy uses our “human nature” in his attacks.

How does the enemy attack with insecurity?

The enemy is trying to get us into insecurity by elevating people we meet, and at the same time make us look down on ourselves.

Why does the enemy attack with insecurity?

God wants us to serve Him in boldness, and because the enemy wants to sabotage our service for God, he attacks us with insecurity.

How should we deal with the enemy’s attack of insecurity?

We need to remind ourselves that we have a tremendous value since we are bought with the blood of Jesus, and that we have a high position because we are ambassadors for the kingdom of God. We have no reason to feel insecure and inferior.

Finally

Finally, let’s tell you about a man we know who was working as a district attorney. He told us that when he would eat together with judges and lawyers he would feel insecure. Therefore he would make an excuse that he had and errand, and then he would eat a hot dog in the streets, alone. So, to be attacked by insecurity has nothing to do with what position you have in society.
