Women World Leaders' Podcast

Join host Tewannah Aman for her podcast, "In Christ, I Can!"

How many of us struggle with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy? Philippians 4:13 is a verse that many know well,  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” But how often do we freeze up? How many times have we not gone through a door? Or we haven’t taken advantage of an opportunity? Do I  hear a resounding yes and amen? I can relate.

We have had many who have criticized and condemned us, and that has created a fear of rejection and a fear of failure deep within us. Those times when someone made us feel so  insecure and inadequate, telling us things like:   “You aren’t good enough. You are a failure. Why even try? You are hopeless and helpless.”  And the list goes on.

When we accepted Jesus, we were adopted into His family. We are children of God and daughters of the King. But the tapes that have been playing in our heads don’t just disappear. Wouldn’t that be nice? We are now on a journey called the process of sanctification. That is when we seek God and His Word to renew our hearts and minds (Romans 12:1, 2). It is allowing His truths to transform us into the image of Christ.

Walk with me as I share how God has enabled me to work through and overcome those fearful times that still can come back to haunt me. And let’s look at Moses and how he struggled with deep feelings of fear and insecurity.  When God called him, he practically refused.   He tried to  convince God He had chosen the wrong person.  We are in good company.

God empowered Moses to deliver the Israelites. Even though he was scared, he went through the door anyway.  He trusted the Lord. And the Holy Spirit kicked in, and that is what He wants to do in each of our lives. He wants to reveal His power in and through us.

He wants to heal, redeem, and restore the brokenness from our past.  So that you can be used to achieve great and mighty things for His Kingdom. May You seek Him with your whole heart (Jeremiah 29:11-13). God has chosen you. He has a purpose and plan for your life. How exciting is that?!!

Now, go rock the world for Jesus.
