As you begin the process of healing, you’ll find yourself beginning to feel the love of Jesus.
Shame will cause you to doubt this love.
Shame will block out the power and the love of God.
Shame will block out the healing grace of God.
That is why encouragement from other believers is so important.
Reading the word of God will help you to understand the new information needed for your paradigm shift. The Bible is full of God’s promises and words of encouragement.
We’ll begin with Jeremiah 1:4-5 NIV - “before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you part; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
This lets you know and establishes that God has a direction for your life from the beginning. Your paradigm shift will allow you to see yourself through new spiritual eyes. Being born again gives you a new life and we learn from 2 Corinthians 4:16 NIV that “we are being renewed day by day.”
You want to shift your paradigm from a “world view” to a view of what God’s will is for you. Romans 12:2 NIV tells us that you will be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
We must not let Shame impede our progress because we know that we have the love of God and the healing grace of God.
