One lie the enemy would like you to believe is that you have to forever live in the shame of your sinful past and carry it with you forever.
This is a LIE! Rebuke it in the name of JESUS whether it is from one who is telling you this or it is your own mere thoughts. It is not from GOD!!
When CHRIST washes you … you are FOREVER FREE, you are FOREVER CLEAN, and you are PURE in GOD’s EYES. You have FULLY met all the righteous requirements of GOD. (Romans 8)
All the things you have filled up your Alabaster jar with, in hopes of bringing you some type of happiness, security, false joy are poured out, washed, and done away with when you take them to the CROSS. This empty filled jar (an oxymoron?) is then poured out and HIS LIVING WATER replaces the empty hopes you so earnestly hung onto. The sinful past that tainted your jar will be cleaned, molded, and made new. You are now emptied of all things past – forever.
Tell these thoughts of shame, guilt, and all the lies of the enemy to flee that you are a HOLY CHILD OF GOD washed by the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST and that you are FREE.
The enemy would love for you to live in the past and forget all that GOD is for you in CHRIST and what HE FULLY did for you. It is FINISHED!!
The enemy wants you to question your worth over, and over, and dwell in pits. The truth is GOD LIFTED YOU OUT and you are standing on a solid ROCK.
HE FULLY PAID THE PRICE with HIS SON.
YOU are FREE… FREE… to live shame free, guilt free, as a fluffy white bouncing sheep that is completely free and full of JOY!!
Hang on to what is pure, true, and worthy of HIS PRAISE!! Think on this.
You are loved with HIS EVERLASTING love.
The room grew still
As she made her way to Jesus
She stumbles through the tears
That made her blind
She felt such pain
Some spoke in anger
Heard folks whisper”There’s no place here for her kind.”
Still on she came
Through the shame that flushed her face
Until at last she knelt before HIS feet
And though she spoke no words
Everything she said was heard
As she poured her love for the MASTER
From her box of Alabaster
And I’ve to come to pour
My praise on HIM like oil
From Mary’s Alabaster Box
Don’t be angry if I wash HIS feet with my tears
And I dry them with my hair
You weren’t there the night HE found me
You did not feel what I felt
When HE wrapped HIS love all around me
And you don’t know the cost
Of the oil in my Alabaster Box
I can’t forget the way life used to be
I was a prisoner to the sin that had me bound
And I spent my days
Poured my life without measure
Into a little treasure box I thought I found
Until the day when JESUS came to me
And healed my soul with the wonder
Of HIS touch
So now I’m giving back to HIM all the praise HE’s worthy of
I’ve been forgiven and that’s why I love HIM so much
