Standing With Absolutely No Shame | Is. 50:6-7Read This Passage: Isaiah 50
6 I gave My back to those who struck Me, And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard; I did not hide My face from shame and spitting. 7 “For the Lord God will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced;Isaiah 50:6-7 NKJV
Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.
Whether you realize this or not, you are always under being watched; you are under a microscope and being heavily studied. You see, there are those who look to you as a testimony of the work of God; they see the way in which you go and aspire to move with such faith. On the opposite side of this are those that study your every move just to see when you falter and fail. When you’re doing your best to walk in a Christ-like manner, they will snicker and mock you for your fall and even remind you of who you used to be.
We live in a society filled with hate, and yes, you have your haters whether you realize this or not. Because you have identified yourself as a child of God, there are many that move to put you to shame. Sadly, some believers feel great shame due to the mocking and scoffing of those that await their fall. Let me simply remind you today that the Lord loves you in all of flaws and faults. You should know this because the Lord gave His only begotten Son for those just like you.
You may have your missteps but you don’t have to be ashamed because you should know that God loves and has already redeemed you. So, I tell you today to heap coals of fire on the heads of your haters by standing boldly and continuing to walk in faith though they mock and laugh at you. At the end of the day, you are the one favored by the Lord which means you should stand boldly in His love because you are both blessed and saved.
