Significance and Security

All women desire security and significance.  Regardless of professions, credentials, or possessions, the vast majority of women are swimming in a sea of insecurity and trying their best to hide it.  The messages all around us are that worldly things can fulfill us.  It’s on TV, in magazines, on the internet; everywhere we turn we’re being bombarded by empty promises for a more fulfilling life. . . a better husband, a better body, a better career, a more beautifully decorated house . . . to be liked, to be wanted, to feel we have something unique to offer.  They sneak into our thought process and make us think, if only I had . . . I’d be so secure and fulfilled.

Until our hearts find complete security and significance in God’s unconditional love, we will never be satisfied.  As children of God we are designed to find our identity, our significance, and our confidence in Him.  The only way we’ll be able to do this is if we move beyond knowing about God to knowing and relying on Him.

When Christ told His disciples, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32), He was referring not only to an intellectual assent to the truth, but also to the application of truth in the most basic issues of life:  our goals, our motives, and our sense of self-worth.  Unfortunately, many give only lip service to the powerful truths of the Scriptures.  True freedom is when we learn to apply foundational truths that can motivate us to live for Christ instead of the approval of others.

You have an opportunity to walk alongside the women you’re mentoring and allow God to speak truth into their lives in this very important area.  There are two sets of documents, depending on which book you decide to use.  One set is for The Search for Significance, which involves exercises from the corresponding workbook.  These are marked “Significance.”  The other set of documents, marked “Security,” goes with the books So Long Insecurity and A Confident Heart.
