(2 Corinthians 10:4, NIV)
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
Perhaps you know GOD has forgiven you from past mistakes and failures, but you still have a sense of unworthiness as though you don’t deserve it. That shame has held you back long enough. Today the strongholds have been broken. Burdens have been lifted. GOD is saying, “Shame off you!” Now you have to get in agreement with HIM. Quit listening to the accusing voices. Quit believing the lies that you have to settle for second best. GOD’s mercy was there for you before you made the mistake. It’s time for you to shake off the shame, to shake off the guilt. This is a new day. Don’t let negative events–a failure, an addiction, a divorce, a bankruptcy–become your identity. That’s what you did; that’s not who you are. That’s what happened to you; that is not your identity. Remind yourself, “I am who GOD says I am. I am approved, I am accepted, I am valuable, and I am a masterpiece.” You are a child of the MOST HIGH GOD.
