Last week, I blogged about how to keep others from shaming us, but there’s no magic cure for the shame we keep locked in our hearts for years.
If you’re like me, you’ve asked, “How do we give our shame to God?”
Here are 3 Promises we can cling to while we talk to Him about it and allow Him to take the shame away:
God doesn’t mean for us to live under shame. When we believe we’re worthless and beyond redemption, we’re listening to a lie. There’s an enemy who wants to destroy our souls, but Christ came so that we might have abundant life (John 10:10).
Coming out from under the shame depends on knowing our status as God’s redeemed. Under the blood of Christ, God sees us as He created us to be, not broken or disgraced. Instead of shame, we’ll inherit a double portion and rejoice in it (Isaiah 61:7) .
We could never do anything to make Him love us any more or any less. His esteem for us has never (or never will) depended on our performance. We do good works to glorify Him because He’s created us to be His masterpieces, not so that we can become masterpieces (Ephesians 2:10).
What are some verses God is using to teach you about who He is and who you are as His child? Please share in the comments.
