Shame Is Not Our Identity!
December 26, 2016
This week, after having a wonderful day of going to see some beautiful Christmas lights at a local Arboretum, I made my way into their beautiful gift shop. I saw a beautiful ornament that had a light inside and attempted to pick it up to look at it, but instead, the ornament crashed to the floor and shattered. It made a loud noise and unfortunately the entire crowded store heard it and everyone stopped what they were doing so that they could look at me. I even heard laughs making fun of me and other noises of gratitude signifying they were happy it was not them who had made the mistake. The woman working in the store came over to me.
At this point I could feel in my entire body the shame and humiliation and guilt over what I had accidentally done. I offered to pay for the ornament but the lady reassured me that it was not necessary. As she was picking up the broken pieces of glass, I decided to start walking and act like nothing was wrong and continued to look around the store. I found myself hiding in a corner feeling embarrassed, filled with shame, but the Lord was gently reminding me in that moment that I was not a failure even though I made a mistake. He gently and lovingly continued to remind me of some truths the rest of that evening that I want to share with you that will encourage you with any failures or mistakes that you have made in your life.
“My beloved, shame and humiliation are not your real identity. When you feel these, I can see the torment that you are experiencing and that is because that is not your real identity. I was broken so that you could be free. My body was broken so that you could experience healing and wholeness in every area of your life. My blood took away all shame, condemnation, guilt and humiliation. I paid for any mistakes you will ever make in your life. There is no barrier between us. I was broken so that I could rescue you from sin, death, sickness, guilt, shame, and more. Receive this free gift that is not based on anything you do or don’t do, rather it is based on what I have done for you.
“My beloved, fear not! You are holy, blameless, pure, righteous, and clean in My sight based on the blood of My Son. This is a gift! Gifts are given in love, not earned. You don’t have to earn My love or acceptance in any way. You are already accepted and loved and always will be, even when you fail. I will never view you any other way, even in your worst failure! You are completely forgiven, and all your sins are gone, and I do not remember them any longer. They are gone! They are done away with, never to return again! I want you to live a life of freedom and peace, knowing that you are loved no matter what! This truth will help you trust Me. This truth will take down any walls you have with Me. This truth will help you to receive My love in a deep, deep way. The powerful revelation that I do not condemn you when you fail will help lead you to freedom in the areas of your life where you still struggle to experience the victory I came to give you. Condemnation only leads to more failure, whereas love leads to victory! And you ARE loved no matter what!”
“They’ll get to know me by being kindly forgiven, with the slate of their sins FOREVER WIPED CLEAN. By coming up with a new plan, a new covenant between God and his people, God put the old plan on the shelf. And there it stays, gathering dust.”
Hebrews 8:12-13 (MSG)
Declaration of encouragement: My Heavenly Father views me with absolutely no sin based on the gift of righteousness given to me by Jesus! I am holy and blameless and accepted by Him. He loves me so much! I am free to live a life of no condemnation!
