No Room For Guilt and Condemnation

Begin to healHave you ever noticed that as you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your past has its way to remind you of your ugly ol’ self?  It seems like every time you take a step forward in faith, you get bombarded by negative thoughts or people trying to remind you of who you used to be; trying to make you feel guilty, condemned or like a hypocrite.

Your past is just that…your past.  It does not define who you are now in Christ.  You are a new creation and the old has been released (2 Cor. 5:17).  So, let go of your past and let God continue working within you; creating the beautiful person you are meant to be.  For who He sets FREE is FREE INDEED! (John 8:36)

Jesus was the only person, who walked on this earth, that was perfect.  We all fall short of God’s glory. (Romans 3:23) However, through Jesus, our future is very different.  He already paid for every one of our sins (past, present and future).  So, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior; you were washed as white as snow, your sins were forgiven and God no longer remembers them. (Romans 8:1-39)

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord,

plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Whatever you do, do not allow yourself to be pulled into feeling guilty nor to respond to the negativity. For God is your vindicator (Romans 12:19).  So, let go of any guilt, condemnation, pain, anger or sorrow and ask God to send His love towards that person or thing that is causing the unnecessary emotion.  Place it in God’s hands and feel the weight of the world lift off your shoulders. 
Coffee Break with God
Just remember that God never calls the qualified, but, makes us all qualified through Jesus.  So, fly like an eagle and soar to your new heights for there is no room for guilt or condemnation.  Christ wiped your slate clean!  You are a NEW CREATION in Christ so be bold, brave and beautiful in all that He calls you to do! Thank God for His new beginnings, Praise His Name and grasp your FABULOUS FUTURE; for the best is yet to come!
