We have probably all faced times when we have felt guilty about something. Sometimes the guilt may be from a "guilty pleasure" such as a sweet treat. Other times the guilt may stem from something deeper and more serious. While having a conscience and feeling guilt can be beneficial in leading us through right and wrong, hanging on to our guilt can cause problems in our lives!
We all sin. God knows we all sin. We may feel guilt because of our sin, but we do not have to live our lives overshadowed by our prior sin and the resulting guilt. Instead, we have been invited to approach God and to be relieved of our sin and guilt. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem us and save us from both sin and its consequences, including guilt. We have to be willing to acknowledge and admit our sin. God already knows what it is, but we need to confess and believe in the forgiveness that God offers us. Once we do that, we can be reassured that our sin and guilt will be removed, as long as we are willing to let God take them from us!
You don't need to have guilt because God is ready to forgive you and take away your guilt!
Thank You for sending Your Son to provide me with forgiveness and redemption. Please help me to let go of guilt and to find peace in You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
