Guilt says, ‘I made a mistake.’ Shame says, ‘I am a mistake.’ Shame affects both our identity and destiny in Christ.
So it’s no coincidence that, in Hebrew, guilt and shame are related to the very thing that defines our true identity: our own name.
Name covenants and threshold covenants are meant to usher us into the hidden place in Christ where He is our shield and inheritance. Instead shame, disappointment and fear drive us into complicity with the enemy of our souls.
When the door into our calling opens but we experience constriction and wasting, not full and abundant life, then it’s time to uncover just what has gone wrong.
