One of the most dangerous enemies you will ever face is an enemy called guilt. Guilt is an inner sense of having done something wrong that deserves some form of punishment. A guilty person expects things to go wrong. And when things begin to go right in a guilty person's life, they don't believe it will last long. Guilty people are always trying to get better, do better and have better circumstances, but deep in their heart they don't believe they deserve it.
If you feel like, no matter how hard you've tried, you just cannot break out of lack, sickness, depression, anxiety, bad relationships, and such things, you are probably dealing with a root problem of guilt. You can desperately try to fix the fruit, but freedom comes from dealing with the root.
God has a remedy for guilt and condemnation. In fact, a believer who understands the power of the new covenant will NEVER experience guilt and ALWAYS expect and enjoy a blessed life. Here's a question you need to think on...If God loved you enough to send Jesus, take your sin and give you His righteousness, why would you ever feel guilty, condemned or unworthy. He is not holding your sins against you. If He doesn't, then you should hold your sins against yourself. That's what a guilty person does. They continually see themselves in light of what they have done wrong, or haven't done right.
You deserve to be healed and healthy because of what Jesus did. He has made you worthy! You deserve to live an abundant life, full of nice things. He is ready to bless you if you can receive it. True freedom is when you begin to see yourself like He sees you. True peace is when you begin to love yourself like He loves you.
Today, look in the mirror, call out your name, point to yourself and tell yourself "(your name)...I am in love with you! I'm crazy about you, because that's the way God feels about you. You are righteous, and qualified to live in God's best!
Romans 8:31-33 (The Passion Translation) So, what does all this mean? If God has determined to stand with us, tell me, who then could ever stand against us? For God has proved his love by giving us his greatest treasure, the gift of his Son. And since God freely offered him up as the sacrifice for us all, he certainly won’t withhold from us anything else he has to give. Who then would dare to accuse those whom God has chosen in love to be his? God himself is the judge who has issued his final verdict over them—“Not guilty!”
