“Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth..." (Isaiah 54:4).
That means the Lord God has got you covered. What you did one second ago and even way before that, doesn't matter to God. Once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9/10), the slate has been wiped clean and you are now covered under His blood, covered by His grace. Yes I know that Isaiah is in the Old Testament, but guess what? God is still a God of forgiveness and redemption. He loved His people then and He loves us now. Forgiveness is freedom and God has already forgiven you. What you did or didn't do is not a problem for Him. And what you said or didn't say doesn't concern Him. He doesn't use our mistakes against us. So there is nothing to fear and there is no shame or condemnation to those in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).
Hold your head high and know you are marvelous and wonderful in God's eyes. Your past doesn't matter one iota to Him and it should not matter to you either. We all have a past and we have no reason to look back. It serves no purpose. God wants to use us now -- today and tomorrow -- the future. Keep that forefront in your mind and let it sink deep inside your spirit.
