I Will Never Use Shame to Guide You

My Heavenly Father whispered this on Valentine’s Day. What a gift of His love!

I will never use shame to guide you. Shame is the earmark (identifying mark) of the enemy, that wicked one who desires to kill, steal, and destroy, to squash*, smother* and extinguish* the light that would be shining brightly for Me, illuminating the darkness. Shame keeps hidden that which I would reveal. Take a look at all the ways you stay hidden because of shame. Identify those areas and bring them into the light of My glorious Gospel, which sets you free. 

Where shame has been heaped upon you by others, I have come to set you free; you are no longer bound by cords of shame if you will choose Me over the shame. Even the areas where you feel you are deserving of the shame, I have come to set you free from every cord that would bind you and hinder you from being all that I created you to be. I have set you free, My child. Will you accept that freedom and no longer succumb to the chains which I have already broken? 
Fear of man is akin to fear of what others are thinking or might be thinking…place no value , no credence on thoughts such as that, real or imagined. Set your mind on things above, keep a heavenly vision at all times, for that is the true perspective, the accurate lens through which to see.
