I stare at them when I feel insecure, shift from one foot to the other, head hung low.
And then, a verse from Leviticus reaches out and grabs my heart this morning…
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high. 26:13
Red Sea parted, armies defeated, miracles provided…all so His people could stand tall. Isn’t insecurity just another kind of slavery?
Then He wants us to be free from it too.
We’re created to hold our heads (and hearts) high, not out of pride in who we are but in confidence that comes from knowing whose we are.
In other words, our souls aren’t made to stare at our soles.
And on a clear day, we can see forever.
What helps you hold your head high?
* When I planned this series, I didn’t know about Beth Moore’s new book, So Long, Insecurity, You’ve Been A Bad Friend to Us. Everything she does is excellent and I highly recommend it as well as her blog!
