The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.
-Deuteronomy 28:13 (NIV)
Are there areas in your life that cause you to feel shameful? Things you only know and will not share — triggering low self-esteem, fear, and depression. You cannot seem to let go of the thoughts that rise up. This can hold you back from your full potential. Romans 3:23 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (NIV).
The word “ALL” in Romans means everyone. By the power of the Holy Spirit who dwells within you – tell guilt to leave. Isaiah 54:17 is clear, “’No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,’ declares the Lord,” (NIV).
So stop accusing yourself. Believe the Lord’s words. He has given you beauty for ashes but you have to bury the ashes to receive the beauty.
Pray that you are not deceived.
Pray for strength to take your negative thoughts captive.
