“However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.”
1 Peter 4:16 NIV
When you find yourself in a situation or your just struggling I share with you tonight "Never feel ashamed". Way to many people live in society with this huge concern of how others will see them.
When you know you are doing the will of God never feel ashamed in anything you do. Not everything is going to come out picture perfect. There is nobody perfect but ONE in this universe.
The worst thing you can do is portray your ok... and all is good. I will say that's not knowing God. That's called wearing a mask and putting on a front.
Let's think about this .... if you where so perfect and had it all so put together would you even bother to seek God? Would you even need Him?
That's a powerful question. You would not... you see this is the same attitude Lucifer had. He portrayed having it all together even to the point that he thought he could do it better then God himself!
Yikes that's a scary place to be in life... who are we kidding... we can't do anything effective without God. We have all tried in the past... did it work NOPE 👎🏼
The true reality is ... as a believer we can't fake in this walk for too long. God wants us to know that when we can't do it He has got it! He wants the Glory! He wants you to never feel ashamed to say Jesus I need you!!!
Many have it so twisted.... Thinking well in order to be a Christian I have to meet a certain criteria.... well ain't that a Joke.
No way...just as you are with your imperfections He is saying your the one I want! He won't even pay attention to the one that runs around boasting about I got Favor, Anointing, Fire of God. So you say you do...
Well if so let's just see how you will react to the adversity that may come your way.
Those who portray to be strong and all well put together be-careful cause you just may fall.
It's ok... don't be ashamed God is not looking for perfect peeps!
