The flesh at best has only insecurities, we will never improve upon its sickness.
Our insecurities are nothing but our flesh trying to live apart from the only source of Life, the Son.
How can we who were created to be dependent, ever live independently?
How can I be secure and insecure at the same time, well, it depends on how we see ourselves? If the Truth is being defined in the person of Christ and He is my only Life, maybe that will shed the true light on who He is and who I am in Him?
When I do not see Him as my only Life, my soul is going to be governed by someone-YOU HAVE TO SERVE SOMEBODY.
Our soul is much like the moon, it has no life-power of its own, our true self is being set free over and over (transformed) to do one thing, like the moon, reflect the Glory of the Greater One, the Son.
We were created to be someones slave, a slave of the the unrighteous one or the Righteous One.
Not for one second does Satan want any of us to Know the Truth, thats why he being the father of All religion, tries to keep the sons of light in darkness.
Perfect love is needed to drive the darkness out, it's not trying to be secure, but only in seeing Him!

A follow up here with some additional thoughts I think fit in well with what I have previously shared.
The following is an excerpt from Oswald Chambers reading for today.
Spiritual truth is learned by atmosphere, not by intellectual reasoning. God's Spirit alters the atmosphere of our way of looking at things, and things begin to be possible which never were possible before. Getting into the stride of God means nothing less than union with Himself. It takes a long time to get there, but keep at it. Don't give in because the pain is bad just now, get on with it, and before long you will find you have a new vision and a new purpose.

Matthew 18:2-4 (English Standard Version)
And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
His grace has made it possible for me to become like a child, and unless I do, the reality of my Father's love, care and provision will be obscured from me.
Seek first this living reality of the Father's love for you, and everything else you stand in need of (every need, every prayer) will be answered as He gives you a greater and fuller revelation of His Son!
In the movie Hook, Peter had grown up in more ways than one. His ability to see who he once was (Peter Pan) was now totally obscured from his mind.
The one scene in the movie where he (Peter) now in Never Land is being examined by one of the children there, as this child squeezes the grown up man Peter's face into strange contortions he exclaims, 'Oh there you are Peter.'
The only way Peter (the Pan) could ever rescue his two children from Hook will be in returning to his childlike identity, and in so doing he will be able to fight, fly and crow...and ultimately, rescue his children. Unless he becomes like a child all over again, his children are doomed.
We have no identity apart from knowing Him, Christ in you the hope of glory. We are encouraged by His spirit to not allow the world to squeeze (conform) us into its empty image, but to be transformed into His image.
A short while back there was a movie out called, The Da Vinci Code, I believe there is another code as it were for the believer called the Mystery (Christ in you) or Jesus Code.
It is an understanding that has been encrypted, (convert ordinary language into code) whereby apart from the Holy Spirit making known to us the true knowledge of the One who has become our only Life, although rebirthed, our true identity is pretty much a secret with held from us.
The reality of Him being our Father on an ever growing experiential level is just not going to happen.
Maybe this is much ado about everything pertaining to His claim, 'I have come that you might have life, and have it abundantly.'
What caused such rapturous joy to explode within the Sons heart when he said, 'Father I thank you that you have hidden this true knowledge of who You are from the wise guys, but have made it known to babes.'
And a child shall lead them!
