My friends, we have all experienced shame in one form or the other – either shame that comes out of disobedience or a misplaced shame that comes because of not meeting standards or expectations.
Regardless of the of the type of shame we are confronted with, the word of God brings us comfort in Isaiah 54:4 “Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood”.
When Satan tries to confront us or remind us of a shameful situation we must remember that our shame has been wiped away with the Blood of Jesus that was shed for us on the cross and hence:
- Remind and take God at His word – By meditating on His word in Isaiah 54:4 above and apply this promise to your situation. Remember God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19).
- Break the cycle of shame – Accepting we can’t change the past but we have a great future with Christ and His promise to help us forget the shame of our youth.
Christ follower allow the Blood of Jesus to wipe away every shame that confronts you this year. If you are currently not a Christ follower, come and experience the only one who is able to wipe away your shame.
All glory to God!
