So unworthy -not wanting to be seen
Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on February 22, 2010
“…So unworthy -not wanting to be seen…”
God intended shame as a means of turning the human heart to see its need for a Savior. The Enemy, on the other hand, uses shame to keep the human heart in bondage to sin. Having been bound in my sin for such a long time, my greatest fear was that someone would find out…and that I would be humiliated and shamed. For far too many years I allowed the voice of the Enemy to whisper thoughts into my mind that kept me bound to my sin. ‘Don’t let that person too close. They will see what you’re really like and you will be rejected.’ Such thoughts so permeated my existence that I let NO ONE know me! There came point of desperation in my life where the weight of that shame so burdened my soul that I HAD to confess to someone – anyone. What I discovered was that most people were very willing to love me and help me find the path of righteousness. Funny how not wanting to be seen due to my shame kept me from finding the joy in absolute honesty and acceptance in the love of God.
Today, allow the Holy Spirit to show you places in you heart you are still hiding. Allow Him to look inside and begin the cleansing process in those areas.
You are my hiding place;
You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
Psalm 32:7 NASB
