Low Self Image

Is a poor self-image holding you back? Timidity and shyness robs us of friendships and lessens our opportunities in leadership; a loss of self-esteem stunts spiritual growth. If I avoid risks because of feelings of my inferiority, and perceived superiority of others, my faith will be lacking.

It is difficult to take leaps of faith when I hesitate and make excuses. The Israelite trailblazers, as a majority, faltered in faith when ready to enter the Promised Land. Caleb had a healthy self-image and viewed his God as all-powerful. The majority had a poor self-image and the enemy saw them in the same light.

“But the men that went up with him said, ‘We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.’ And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel (Numbers 13:31-32a KJV).” Our negative point of view is often two sided. “and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight (Numbers 13:33b NIV).”

In their own eyes, they were as insignificant grasshoppers; interestingly, to the opposition they also looked like grasshoppers. Hmm…That is a concept to ponder if someone accusingly asks, “Who do you think you are?” What we think matters a great deal. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7a KJV).” If God opens a door, we can stand tall and stride through.




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
