The Endless Staircase

By Gabrielle Elisco Sposetta

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” Isaiah 43:19, NIV.

Throughout my walk with Jesus, I have experienced many ups and downs. There were days when I felt as though I was in perfect sync with God, and others where I felt nothing but condemnation for my shortcomings. Every time I would mess up, I set myself back. I imagined myself on an endless staircase with no destination or end point. In my mind, I kept heading upward on the good days, the days I felt holy, and filled with a heart of praise and thanksgiving. Then, on the days I didn’t feel so great about myself or knew I missed the mark and blew it yet again, I imagined I fell down a considerable flight of stairs. One step forward on the good days, ten steps backward on the bad days.

I felt unworthy, would beat myself up over my mistakes and thought I had to serve my “time-out” and perform better before I could come into the presence of my Savior again. This is a nuclear defense of the devil. When we mess up, his condemnation and guilt sweep in to put a wall between us and our Father. But what does Jesus do? He makes all things new. He hung on that cross so that when we fall short, we can receive His sweet forgiveness. He is ready to forgive us, before we even come before Him to ask for His mercy yet again.
Sister, there is now no condemnation to you because you are in Christ Jesus (see Romans 8:1). That mistake you made, He casts it as far as the east is from the west, and He remembers it no more (Psalm 103:12; Hebrews 8:12). The sin you committed, He washed in His blood. The mess you made of things, He has made new and is creating a divine purpose. He is focused on your future, it’s time to let go of your past.

He is saying to you today, “I will carry you forward. Stop punishing yourself. The price has already been paid. I carried away your shame, your sins, your insecurities. I rescued you from the power of darkness and placed you in my Kingdom. You are mine and I’m taking you to higher ground now.”

Prayer: Father, I thank you for your endless mercies and your forgiveness. Lord, I ask you to forgive me of my sins and the times I have failed you. Help me to put the past behind me as you already have. Help me to stop punishing myself, and step into your righteousness that you have given me through your finished work. Carry me through, Jesus. I welcome your sweet presence to fill me, and make whole every part of me that is broken. In Jesus name, Amen.

(Read Isaiah 46:4; 1 Peter 2:24; Colossians 1:13)

  6. Oh, how much I needed this today. I am going to meditate on the scriptures. This is exactly where I am today. Thank you, for letting God use you!

  7. Father, I thank You for Your endless pursuit of me!!! Father, I’m grateful for how You love on me. Lord, that You for being patient and long-suffering as I grow up in You!! I refuse to stay in the pass because I can’t get to my future and destiny looking at my past!! I refuse to punish myself anymore, because I’m tired of cycles to where I would have to keep on healing from the same issues I caused from doing the same thing over and over again and getting the same results because I refuse to change. I knew once I changed my mind about me and believe what The Lord is telling me, everything else would change and I will start maturing in Him. Knowing that there is no condemnation now because I’m in Him.
    Colossians 2:10-14
    10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

    11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

    12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

    13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

    14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

    Sister Gabrielle Elisco Sposetta, once I started receiving and believing what He did for me on the cross. And knowing He did it freely to give me an expected end, and knowing I am accepted by Him. Made me want to love Him back and show Him by being obedient to His will and His way. Thank you for this one. God bless💖🤗
