God is aware of every single error, misjudgment and mistake you’ve made. And He never runs out of grace to cover each one.
If you are wrestling with guiltiness tied to previous choices, whether those slip-ups happened long ago or very recently, here are 3 scripture-based ways to stop letting guilt hold you back from destiny.
1. Let it go. God has.
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1 NIV)
While you’re beating yourself up, God has already forgiven you. Isn’t it about time to forgive yourself? One of the things my pastor taught me is that conviction of sin is the work of the Holy Spirit. But condemnation over forgiven sin is not. God will make you aware of your wrong to help you correct it. But once you repent of that sin, He gives you a fresh start. He doesn’t wag a finger of condemnation at you. Satan does that.
2. Remember, mistakes don’t disqualify you from destiny.
“I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.” (Isaiah 43:25 NIV)
Your worst errors in judgment, dumb moves and awful missteps don’t get you crossed off God’s list. In fact, once you accept Christ’s forgiveness, He washes away sin completely. God blots out the transgression and forgets all about it. So you are free to walk into your destiny without being weighed down by the burden of guilt and shame. Instead of disqualifying you, your old ways actually give you a testimony to share. You can tell others, I once was lost, but Christ found me and made me brand new!
