Did you know Satan is trying to steal your God-given identity?
In Silencing Insecurity, Donna Gibbs, a National Certified Counselor, identifies the 7 types of identity thieves, digs into the problems they create, and helps readers discover a formula for wholeness.
 
The first part of the book covers the typical things that fuel insecurity, such as—appearance and comparisons, success and failure, approval and rejection, life experiences and trauma, roles and responsibilities.
 
“If we allow Satan to deceive us, then we rely on the opinions of others to shape our identity. We rely on our temporary successes or failures rather than our eternal purpose. We rely on our earthly roles and responsibilities rather than our eternal hope.”

Gibbs helps readers identify specific problems our insecurities cause. 

She divides these problems into mental, emotional, relational, and developmental categories. I loved section 2 of the book and thought Gibb’s professional experience helped dissect how insecurity infiltrates each aspect of our lives.

Chapter 8 discussed the mental struggles that can rob a secure identity. Our repetitious, toxic internal dialogue, becomes second nature, cementing a negative mindset that requires determined effort to replace with truth.
 
“Thinking on truth requires the same level of attention and dedication that years of thinking destructively required. Your destructive thoughts didn’t just happen. You fertilized and nurtured them. You gave them your time and attention. You pondered them frequently and with deep concern. They were born out of persistence, with repetition and meditation.”
 
Destructive thoughts include catastrophic thinking, self-doubt, racing thoughts, comparisons, and self-preoccupation.
 
Emotional complications of insecurity are anger, anxiety, sensitivity, depression, envy, shame, and bitterness.
 
Insecurity creates relational chaos that includes neediness, codependent caretaking, toxic jealousy, and isolation.
 
Gibb’s explanation of these unnecessary problems helped me evaluate my own life and see areas where insecurity has created complications.
 
Part 3 of the book discusses the benefits of living with a secure self and for an Audience of One (God). She provides a formula that helps bring freedom to those who desire to submit their thoughts to God.

Freedom of Insecurity
 
There’s a list of scripture truth statements to repeat and meditate on to replace false beliefs.
 
This is the most thorough book I’ve read on the topic of insecurity.
 
I was given a free copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
