How can I overcome inferiority?

Today's Question: I have struggled with an inferiority complex all my life. I have accepted the Lord, and it helped a little. But I still struggle with a lot of insecurities. I have seen a psychologist about my problem, but he doesn't seem to understand my faith in the Lord. So I feel uncomfortable with him. Can you help me?

Bible Answer: You are not alone in this struggle with inferiority. The children of Israel experienced inferiority after the twelve spies came back from exploring the Promised Land. They said, "We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them" (Numbers 13:33).

You are experiencing the same thing they experienced: a grasshopper complex.

You see, we are programmed to see ourselves a certain way by the words people speak to us and the experiences of our lives. If the words we hear are positive and our experiences wonderful, then we usually have a good self-image. Obviously, you have experienced the opposite.

How can you overcome all these negative words and bad experiences? The answer is all in the Bible.

You need to reprogram your mind to God's Word. You must think about yourself the way God thinks about you.

And how does God see you?

He sees you "in Christ." Now this phrase "in Christ" is very important, because this phrase describes you. The opposite of "in Christ" is "in the flesh." You must quit seeing yourself according to the flesh, and start to see yourself according to the Spirit. The Bible paints a portrait of you "in Christ."

You need to find expressions in the Bible such as "in Christ," "in him," "in whom," "in the beloved," "with Christ," "through Christ," etc. Then highlight them in your Bible and write them out on a separate paper. After that, start to personalize these verses by using the personal pronoun "I," and confess them out loud.

For example, 1 Corinthians 1:5 says, "For in him you have been enriched in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge." So you will confess this scripture this way: "For in him I have been enriched in every way--in all my speaking and in all my knowledge."

Can you see how doing this every day for the rest of your life will change your self image? Now, you must be disciplined in this spiritual exercise. You can't try it for a while and stop, and expect it to work. You must make this routine a daily part of your life.

Thousands of people have done this, and have experienced marvelous results. It can happen to you, too!
