Dear friends, if we don’t feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence. 1 John 3:21 NLT
Beloved, our Father delights in seeing us live freely and not in bondage: for we’ve not received the spirit of bondage wherein we should fear (Romans 8:15). When we feel guilty, it produces fear in us. But God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
Saints, a sound mind is a mind that is conscious of God’s gift of forgiveness and non-imputation of sins. Why are you still feeling guilty? Jesus took away your sins with the penalty and wages that came with it. Now you are guiltless.
Jesus was betrayed and put to death because of our misdeeds and raised to secure our justification (our acquittal), balancing our accounts and absolving us of all guilt before God (Romans 4:25). Don’t allow the devil make you feel guilty. You’ve been acquitted and set free by the death of our Saviour – He that the Son of man has set free is free indeed (John 8:36). Stand on the finished work of Christ today and declare “I’m free indeed”.
Prayer: I declare that I am free indeed by the Blood of the Lamb; free of all accusations from the devil. I live life from the premise of my liberty in Christ, in Jesus Name.
