Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom. (Job 36:5)
God will never despise anyone. He sees you as a VIP, even if no one regards you as one. It really does not matter what other people think of you, your plans or your project. Disregard whatever they are saying: it’s just their opinion. And you know that opinion is the cheapest thing on earth: because everybody has it.

       Believe in yourself and your ability. There is nothing that can multiply a man’s ability like superiority complex. It can make a one-talent man a success while a ten-talent man without it would fail.
       People with inferiority complex cannot make any headway in life.
       In Numbers 13, twelve spies were sent out to search out the land of Canaan. Ten of them came back and said “we are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we” .Then  they said “the land through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof and all the people that we saw in it are men of great statue”.
       The problem with inferiority complex is that it drains your energy, saps your confidence, amplifies your fear, paralyze your creative instinct and render you motionless.
       Those ten spies concluded their report by saying “we were in our own sight as grasshopper”. What a faithless conclusion! Little wonder, they actually died like grasshoppers.
       Don’t belittle yourself! You are not inferior to anyone, whatever anyone has achieved, you too can. Jesus in you is a guaranty that you are not destined to stay under!

       There are some reasons why people belittle themselves.
(a)    Lack of sufficient education. Education is good, without good education you may not be able to read what you are reading right now.
        Lack of sufficient education however is never an enough reason to lose your self-esteem. Your intelligent quotient may not be too high, but that is not the end of the world. The front place in destiny does not always go to the most intelligent.
        Albert Einstein was expelled from school for being mentally slow, yet he bounced back to become a renowned inventor of our time.
        Louis Pasteur was a C student in chemistry, yet he became the inventor of a chemical method of preserving things called Pasteurization among other notable achievements.
(b)    Lack of good family background. Jephtaph was a bastard, a cast-out, yet he became the captain of his people. Your family background should never be allowed to keep your back on the ground and make you feel inferior!
       As you go out, walk tall among your colleagues and Neighbors for greater is he that is in you.
(c.) Unenviable Past: In the race of life, if you do not feel good about yourself and your chance to succeed, you may never do. Never allow your past to hunt you and paralyze you. Archbishop Benson Idahosa was once a poor shop keeper in Benin city, Nigeria. He wore his first pair of shoes at the age of 18. Around that time also, he worked as an houseboy and a restaurant cleaner. During his wedding ceremony, he trekked back home with his new wife because the owner of the vehicle he borrowed for the ceremony came to collect it. He however became one of most impact-ful and wealthiest Gospel ministers of his time.
       Esther in the Bible, had neither mother nor father, yet she was courageous enough to compete with other young ladies for the throne.
       Inferiority complex will keep you down! You must not feel inferior because you are not inferior. Your immediate past may be dirty, but you are not alone!
       Mary Magdalene was highly oppressed yet she was not ashamed to support the ministry of the Lord Jesus openly. Rahab was once a harlot. Paul was a chronic persecutor of the gospel. They all became confident and prominent!
       There are two more things you must prevent from keeping you inferior!
 (d.) The colour of your skin- if you ever underrate yourself because of the co lour of your skin, then you need more knowledge!  No co lour is superior, no colour is inferior. And for your information: your skin may be   brown, black, yellow or white, the colour of every mans brain is the same: white!  You are therefore not disadvantaged at all!
I remember the story of a old man  who made a  living by selling balloon.. He had all colors of balloons including red, white, black, yellow, blue and green. Whenever business was slow he would release a helium-filled balloon into the air and when the children saw it go up, they would come up to him, buy a balloon, and his sales would go up again. He continued this process all day. One day, he saw a little negro boy who asked, ”If you release a black balloon, would that also fly?
     “Moved by the boy’s concern and obvious conclusion, the old man replied with empathy,”boy, it is not the color of the balloon, it is what is inside that makes it go up.” Therefore your success is NOT IN THE COLOUR BUT IN THE CONTENT
(e.) Personal handicap- the most serious handicap anybody can have is inferiority complex! Moses was a stammerer yet God used him and he became a deliverer.
In recent and not too recent history, there are many outstanding men who were physically handicapped but who still had faith in themselves!
           
Helen Keller:
Blind and partially deaf American woman who  graduated from college to become a noted speaker, author and crusader for pacifism, women’s right to vote and birth control .

 Thomas Edison :
 The great inventor who had over 1,000 patents with inventions in various fields. In his early life he was thought to have a learning disability and he could not read till he was twelve and later became partially deaf.

President Roosevelt
The only American President to ever serve four  terms, Franklin D. Roosevelt was paralyzed from the waist down by a form of polio in 1921 and ruled while on a wheelchair!

Albert Einstein
Believed to have Asperger’s Syndrome, it is documented that the man, did not talk fluently until he was nine, failed his college entrance exam and had a hard time remembering simple things such as his phone number or how to tie his shoes. Nobel Prize winner for Physics, Albert Einstein proved to be one of the most gifted minds in science and history

Charles Dicken was lame. Julius Caesar also suffered from epilepsy.

Beloved you have no reason to be inferior because you are not! In fact you are  a special being, a unique creature in a different class. There is no one else in all the world exactly like you.
For example:
There is no one (dead or alive) with the same fingerprint as yours
Some scientists in Japan have also discovered that your lips are special too. Just like your fingerprints, your lips have little markings on them, little grooves in the skin ... and everyone has a different pattern.
Apart from these, no one else smells exactly like you…that’s why your dog can single you out of multitudes and police  dogs can follow one person's trail for long distances just by the smell they leave behind on the ground they touch.
Oh God! I also learnt medical researchers have discovered that even your stomach is different from everyone else's. No two stomachs are exactly the same size or shape.
YOU ARE NOT INFERIOR,YOU ARE DIFFERENT,YOU ARE  SPECIAL,YOU ARE UNIQUE  AND GOD HAS A UNIQUE PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE

How Can You Overcome Inferiority Complex
1.Give Your Life To Jesus: Unless you are born again you cannot see clearly or understand vividly ‘who you are”
2. Develop yourself in the Word of God. This you can do by studying the Bible, reading good Christian books, buying and listening to messages on CDs and attending a Bible believing church!
3. Walk in the consciousness of who you are  and what you can do according to the word of God. For example, If you believe you can do all things through Christ, and you walk in the reality of that truth you will never look down on yourself anymore
