For the Lord God helps Me, therefore, I have not been ashamed or humiliated. Therefore, I have made My face like flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
— Isaiah 50:7 (AMP)
Devotional No More Shame From the book Quiet Times with God – by Joyce Meyer
It is one thing to be ashamed of something you have done wrong, but it is another thing entirely to become ashamed of yourself. Shame is actually much deeper and more damaging than guilt.
If this is a problem for you, I have wonderful news: Jesus has taken away the reproach of sin (the guilt and shame)! He bore it all. He has declared you not guilty and made you a brand-new creation in Him (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).
When you feel condemned, it is not Jesus condemning you; it is the devil, and you must resist him. When you are having a guilt-and-shame attack, just remember who you are in Christ. I recommend saying out loud, “God loves me unconditionally, and He has forgiven all of my sins.”
Prayer Starter: Lord, help me learn to receive Your love and accept myself, as You love me and have accepted me, amen.
