Just Say NO to Guilt


I truly don’t know a woman alive who doesn’t wrestle with guilt. And yet we don’t have to remain stuck in that place. We all stumble and fall (see James 3:2), and we all fall short. Yet when we miss the mark we can humble our hearts, approach the Lord, and ask Him to forgive and cleanse us. He will.

Yes, it really is that simple.

When the enemy or our own disappointment in ourselves makes us cringe under the heavy weight of guilt, we would do well to remember that because of the finished work of the cross, we are completely forgiven! Guilt is optional. (Let’s leave that option at the curb, agreed?)

“Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.” (Colossians 1:22-23)

LET’S PRAY:

Lord, when guilt hammers against my heart help me to remember the cross. The truth is I don’t measure up, but Christ measures up for me. Because of the finished work of the cross I can confess my sin to You, be forgiven, and be completely cleansed of all unrighteousness. Because of what Jesus accomplished, I stand before You holy and blameless, without a single fault. Give me grace to continue to believe this truth and stand in it firmly. I can only do this by Your grace. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
