The stone knows I sinned

Have you ever been in a position where you fall into sin, ask for forgiveness, but you still feel God is angry with you? You begin to ascribe every subsequent event to that sin thinking that God is dealing with you. The glass cup of water you are holding falls down and spills and “Oh, this is a consequence of my sin”. Or you are walking and you bruise your leg against a stone and then “Oh, the stone knows I sinned”.  That’s guilt. And sometimes, guilt is a worse enemy.

Guilt keeps us in fear so we pray and when we don’t get answers, we say it’s because of that sin. But that’s not true. We prayed in fear and fear does not get answers from God, faith does. If our repentance was truly genuine, then we need to know that guilt has no place in us. 1 John 1:9 says:

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Stop giving the enemy a hold over your life through guilt.

Food for thought:

Are you walking in the consciousness of a forgiven sin?

Life nugget:

Learn to forgive yourself. It seems to be the hardest part.
