I am still searching out this guilt, shame, condemnation, freedom, righteousness, grace thing. Can I tell you I am still learning this whole “God” thing, what He really says, and what He really means. This post helped me a lot today:
Is the Holy Spirit really the “Fault Finder” or Accuser of Brethren?
I woke up with these words running in my head:
“NOT GOOD ENOUGH, NOT GOOD ENOUGH”
Now I know that is not from God,
that is NOT what God says to me.
That is what someone else has told me,
and it is NOT TRUE!
Help us Lord, with your Holy Spirit, to understand You and Your ways. Lord, let us take every thought captive and subject it to YOUR WORD. I reject those words “not good enough”. Let them fall to the ground like dust. Thank you for the sword of your Spirit – the Word of God – that helps me to know what is true and what is false. I thank you that we can know the Truth and the Truth will set us FREE!
This is what I’m putting on – how about You?
I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10 NIV)
