This Will Not End In Shame! 

Sally struggled in her thoughts. Since she has given her life to Jesus, nothing spectacular has happened in her life, or so she thought. She wondered whether she would eventually make it.

Sometimes, her thoughts would wander away and meander into the terrain of doubt and the foggy path of faithlessness. Has she made the right decision in serving God? It looked like those that didn’t know God or are not as spiritual as her are getting things done faster, getting married, and are happier. 

Really, she is confused. It is the same experience with George. He is not sure this “born-again thing” will lead him anywhere. He feared being a loser at the end of the day. It simply seems walking with God is the slowest thing that can ever happen.

The couple down the road the Johnsons are not spared either. The economic downturn of their nation is really biting into their finances. They wake up every morning, hoping to japa! All hope seems lost!

Well, I am here this morning to encourage you! This Will Not End In Shame! 

“Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.”  (Psa 22:4-5, KJV)

The ones that have gone ahead of you trusted in God, and God delivered them. Trusting God does not mean trouble will not show up, but when you trust Him, no trouble or issue will overcome you.

They trusted in God and they were not confounded.

Listen to me, people of God, when you trust God all the way, it will look like you are finished, but you will not be finished. It will look like you are a loser, but you will laugh at the end. It will look like you made a useless decision, but in the end, people will seek your counsel.

The wisdom of God is foolishness to this world. It cannot be naturally discerned.

Look at verse 5 in the Amplified version:

“They cried to You and were delivered; they trusted in, leaned on, and confidently relied on You, and were not ashamed or confounded or disappointed.”  (Psa 22:5, AMP)

They trusted, leaned on, and confidently relied on God, and they were not ashamed or confounded, or disappointed!

This Will Not End In Shame! 

I declare over you, you will not be ashamed. You will not be confounded. You will not be disappointed.

Stay with God, people of God. I say it again, stay with God.

Do you know the problem that people normally have with this?

They usually compromise while trusting God. The moment you get into some habitual stuff, the whole process is ruptured! And that is when it looks like you are defeated.

Why are compromise and sin dangerous here?

The devil is the accuser of the brethren. He is looking for every mistake and accuses to God not to bless you. Then He comes to you and accuses God to you. God does not love you! He will accuse man to God and accuse God to man.

And so, if you are not grounded in the word, you will tend to believe him and the moment you have an ill feeling towards God, your creator, and benefactor, the whole process of trusting God is tampered with. 

If you don’t want to see shame as a child of God, stay away from sin. Stay away from all sexual sins. 

A lifestyle of sin brings shame.

“By righteousness a nation is lifted up, but sin is a cause of shame to the peoples.”  (Pro 14:34, BBE)

A lifestyle of sin makes people blaspheme the name of the Lord. They will say something like, “Oh, she is born again, why would that happen to her? Where is her God that cannot deliver her?”

But we see from the above scripture, 

They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded!

But Pastor, I am not in any habitual sin, and yet nothing is happening? You need to know there are timings and seasons. When you want something done for you but it is out of God’s season for your life, it may not happen, simply because it is not time yet. 

Also, you need to know that there are things you can do that will speed up God’s plan in your life, that will break the bars of delays, will make crooked places straight and that will release unprecedented favour into your life.

What are those things? Here are a few of them

1. Stay with God’s word. Read, meditate and confess regularly

2. Pray in the Spirit daily, it strengthens you to trust God more by opening your eyes 

3. Be a tither and a giver. Be consistent. Support God’s work. Don’t be careless with it

4. Serve God in a local assembly. Spend your time, talent, and treasure for God

5. Forgive all. Stay out of strife.

6. Stay out of sin. Clean up your life. Let dangerous habits go. 

6. Honour your biological parents and spiritual parents with your seeds. Listen to them.

7. Be full of thanksgiving

These are just a few things. In trusting God, you trust with all your heart. And I can tell you, you will not be ashamed! This Will Not End In Shame!
