Isaiah 54:4, NIV
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...
Perhaps you are living with a sense of shame because of something that happened to you that wasn't even your fault. You might have been mistreated when you were growing up. Somebody took advantage of you. The enemy will twist things and try to convince you that it was your fault. Don't believe those lies. If someone did you wrong, the problem wasn't with you; the problem was with them. God saw what happened, and He says you will forget that shame. He's going to make your life so blessed, so rewarding, and so fulfilling that you won't remember the reproach.
Now do your part and forgive the people who did you wrong. As long as you continue to dwell on it, you're allowing them to continue to hurt you. Let it go. What they have done to you did not change your identity. Take off the label that says "Damaged" and put on some of God's labels, such as "Accepted," "Approved," "Valuable," and "Masterpiece." God will take your scars and turn them into stars.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the freedom from any sense of shame I have about what happened to me in my past. Thank You that You are going to make my life so blessed and rewarding that I won't even remember the shame or the reproach. I declare that I am putting on the new labels of what You call me. In Jesus' Name, Amen
