“But the Lord God helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.”
I remember when I was attending prayer meeting or cell group, every time I need to give a testimony about God’s goodness or even leading a prayer, I feel ashamed/embarrassed especially when I need to go in front of my brothers and sisters. I have stage fright even before in school and I’m not really into a social activities.
Until I heard a preaching about it since they notice this problem in our community as most youth members are hesitating to share their testimony. She said that we can find lots of bible verse about discouragement and why we shouldn’t be ashamed especially in sharing God’s words to others and His goodness. And from those verses we can say that this is not the plan of God for us as. He also understand our weaknesses that is why He emphasized it with several verses that we can read in bible.
From the verse above, Isaiah put his trust on God as a helper and we will not be put to shame. So as I heard about it, I can now share testimony thinking that God is with me and this is what He wants for me to do. There is nothing to be ashamed of especially about His goodness He had done for us.
