Why doesn’t God save me from shame?
Have you ever asked the question; Why doesn’t God save me from depression, rejection, fear, anger, jealousy, trauma, anxiety?
When I experienced shame in a 100% intensity, being suicidal and in complete agony. I prayed and asked Abba Father to relieve me from this agony and just take away these emotions. To my deepest disappointment, nothing happened and the feeling had to resolve on its own. Waiting in the agony for it to pass is not a fun exercise.
A few days later the answer came; “My Son already paid the price that took your shame away. How should I do that again?”
I received an amazing revelation right there and then; Abba Father cannot let our hearts NOT be troubled for us, we’ve got to do that. He also cannot take our thoughts captive on our behalf – we’ve got to do that. He cannot force you to completely take Jesus’ sacrifice and be free, you’ve got to do that.
Ephesians 6:17-18 (TPT)
Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers.
John 14:27 (TPT)
Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]
2 Cortinthians 10:5-6 (TPT)
5 We can demolish every deceptive fantasy[e] that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought[f] and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. 6 Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish[g] any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience.[h]
Eye-opener right… blew my mind!
I realized that I have to Defeat that feeling and by the Grace of Abba Father I was able to. He then made it possible to write, create and publish a journey that would help others struggling with shame.
Yup – He knows what He is doing, even though we wonder why we are going through the things we are going through.
How can you overcome shame?
It is super important to identify every single thought pattern, belief and emotion connected to shame and destroy it while bringing your mind, body and spirit in line with the Holy Spirit.
