You may be old enough to remember the anti-drug commercial a number of years ago that showed eggs frying in a pan with the caption: This is your brain – and this is your brain on drugs. It’s a good illustration for today’s devotional featuring Tasha Layton’s song entitled Look What You’ve Done.
The lyrics of the song begin by speaking of how we judge and condemn ourselves when we exclude the truth of God’s loving mercy and grace:
Look what you’ve done – How could you fall so far?
You should be ashamed of yourself – So I was ashamed of myself
The lies I believed – They got some roots that run deep
I let ’em take a hold of my life – I let ’em take control of my life
The chorus of the song gives us the biblical truth to our wrong-headed, self-condemning spirit as we walk by faith:
Look what You’ve done, look what You’ve done in me,
You spoke Your truth into the lies I let my heart believe.
Look at me now, look how You madе me new,
The enemy did everything that he could do
Oh, but look what You’ve done
This is your life as you judge yourself in an unbiblical way 🥺🥺🥺.
This is your life as you listen to God’s word as Jesus washes away your sins and works in your life 😊😊😊
Read Hebrews 4:14-16. Then listen to Look What You’ve Done by Tasha Layton.
