That challenging experience in the last season
of your life has left you feeling exposed. You are experiencing an
uncomfortable nakedness in the presence of those who know what took place.
But you have a different reality than this
feeling of exposure. You are not standing in naked shame before the eyes of
God. He has chosen to look at you as one covered by His love and mercy. These
two expressions of God’s heart are your only covering. God is inviting you to
see yourself like He sees you no matter what others may think.
This lie of nakedness has been spoken, even
shouted at you, in an attempt to get you to run and hide. There is no refuge in
running. Your place of refuge will be found in trusting God.
God is about to turn this thing around, but He
needs you to stand up and start walking forward again believing that you are fully
clothed by His presence. This is not a
time to try some fig leaf attempt at self-rescue by creating a manmade covering.
In this moment choose to believe that you are not an object of naked shame to
God or to those who see you as He does.
If you choose to believe this you will begin to walk forward with
freedom into a new season of life.
