Guilt has the power wreck us, but God’s grace always has the upper hand when we yield to His truth. Those guilty feelings we all face are either a result of condemnation spewed on us by the enemy or godly conviction that comes from the Holy Spirit who desires to lead us into right living (Romans 8:1, John 14:26, John 16:7-8 NLT). Conviction is the Lord’s way of gently and purposefully showing us what needs to change in our hearts and habits in order to glorify Him.But how do we know the difference between guilt that is a result of condemnation rather conviction in the heat of the moment, especially if our emotions dominate our thinking faster than our ability to embrace the truth?
Rather than reacting to the guilt we feel, we need to respond to it in light of the Truth.
We need to ask honest questions of ourselves as we seek God for biblical clarity on our circumstances, and if we’re still unsure if it is condemnation or conviction, we need to seek godly counsel for another perspective.
Guilt can be the gateway toward transformation when it’s a Spirit-led conviction.
So are you ready to finally let go of guilt once and for all? These simple questions and applications steps included in the Letting Go of Guilt devotional guide (a version for moms and a second for teens) will help you begin the life-long process.
