I SHALL NOT BE ASHAMED Isaiah 54:4-5
“I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.” (Psalm 119:31)
The Bible reveals that shame has its origin in the fall of man in the garden of Eden. “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” (Genesis 3:7) When Adam and Eve engaged in gross disobedience to the commandment of God, the end result was shame.
Shame is inevitable for whosoever will not give due regard to the commandments or instructions that come from the Lord. The devil delights in using the spirit of rebellion as a tool to knock people down from grace to grass. When king Saul acted contrary to God’s instruction, the end result was the shame of rejection. God rejected him as king over His people Israel. 1 Samuel 15:26 says: “And Samuel said to Saul, I will not return with thee; for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.”
Are you experiencing any form of shame in your life? Have good news for you today. No matter how terrible your past life has been; the Lord will wipe away your shame today in Jesus Name. In Isaiah 54:4-5 The Almighty God gives you the assurance that beginning from now, your shame shall become history. Read Proverb 28:13. Confess your sins and call on the Lord like the Psalmist did in Psalm 119:31. What is that shame in your life right now? An end has come to it today, only believe. (O.H)
PRAYER LINE: Father, remove any shame in my life and cover my nakedness today in Jesus’ Name.
God is always available to hear the prayers of His children.
