I have had a lot of trouble dealing with guilt, many people do. It seems when we become Christians, rather than accepting the fact that our sins have been forgiven we want to remember them, and feel not worthy of God’s gift of salvation. Other times we end up feeling guilty for small things. I often feel guilty for missing Church, or not reading the bible enough or even not posting on here for a while.
We have to remember guilt is an open door to Satan. He wants your past defeats to drag you down. Even a victory can drag you down if you let the enemy inside your head.
You have to remember, you will fall, be humble as you get up. We can’t comprehend God’s love, he said he will cast your sins as far as the east is from the west.Take him at his word. You can’t focus on being the hands and feet of Christ when you are hiding your face with your hands out of shame.
Most important thing is remembering God’s love and that we all fall short. Many people are struggling, if you focus on your guilt rather than salvation you are wasting God’s sacrifice. When you sin, repent, keep going after God. The Lord is not ashamed of you, he loves you. We hear love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Well if we learn to love ourselves like God loves us, we can turn that same love around to others.
Have a blessed week
