Exchange your pain with ME. I will give you beauty for ashes. The pain can have meaning and set others free, if it is examined and filtered through purpose. The hurt shaped you, the suffering molded you, but it does not define you.
Every disappointment, every mistake, every defeat, every crooked place, every worry, every regret, every sin, every doubt, every shame, every weakness, every thought and every concern are extinguished. It is time to lay them at MY feet.
No longer will the past shape your future. You are free and do not owe anyone anything. You do not owe your family and you do not owe your friends. You do not owe a religion and you do not owe any relationship, your peace.
I AM salvation. MY eternal gift is liberty, not a bond servant or a slave you are a son and your freedom is a birthright. To live, move and to have being in the privilege of relationship with ME. Release the pain, accept the freedom.
Because of the weakness of your human nature, I am using the illustration of slavery to help you understand all this. Previously, you let yourselves be slaves to impurity and lawlessness, which led ever deeper into sin. Now you must give yourselves to be slaves to righteous living so that you will become holy.
When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right. And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
