It’s time to place your shame into God’s hands. When you allow past and present transgressions, the adversary and people’s opinions and judgments about you to seep into your mind, you will start believing them instead of what God believes about you. When this happens, you will begin to feel shame over false pretenses because his love for you is more powerful than anything that makes you feel embarrassed or ashamed. Go to God’s throne room and lay down the thoughts and past transgressions that cause you shame. There is forgiveness available for the taking, will you take it? Allow God to wash your sins as white as snow and start new.
1 John 1: 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.”
3 Hebrews 4:16 Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.
Heavenly Father, I bow down in your throne room seeking forgiveness for the things that I have done that have covered me like crimson. I know that through you, my sins are forgiven and I am made white as snow. Remove all the opinions and judgments that I have accepted from others and replace them with your opinions. Replace my feelings of shame with your grace, mercy, and love. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen!
- After seeking forgiveness and turning away from your sins, what steps can you do to ensure you don’t look back when the enemy reminds you?
- Study God’s word so that you begin to learn His heart, His ways, and His will.
- Stay in constant connection with Jesus and talk to Him just like you would your best friend. When He is on your mind, it is easier to walk with Him.
