Right-standing with God persuades us to disbelieve and resist guilt. Even if we don’t see the Lord moving in a natural sense, we can be assured by His loving presence, despite issues that condemn us.
Guilt connects a person to the judgment God assigned to Satan—Satan is judged but you are forgiven. Jesus came to give you life. Choose confidence in His love. Refuse guilt!
Guilt is based in unbelief but mature faith refuses guilt. Instead of guilt’s agent of evil, our Lord speaks by His Spirit directly to our human spirit—guilt is a death arrow, God’s Spirit the agent of divine rescue.
Guilt exalts soul-desire over the spirit walk. Guilt is a survivor, returning again and again to influence our motivations. In the same way that the loss of breath precedes the loss of life, the sense of guilt takes our healthy breath away and replaces it with loss or lack.
Instead of allowing the spiritual force of guilt to dictate, the Lord wants to speak to your heart about any sin on your part, plus your involvement in the sin of others. Sin invites guilt so never compromise the issue of sin, and never require someone else to carry blame for your sin or the sin of another person.
Placing blame assigns guilt. Release any person you have held prisoner through guilt, anyone you’ve judged “guilty.” Release yourself as well. Disconnect with and refuse the influence of guilt, and the evil spirit of guilt will leave you.
God has not given you a spirit of fear (of being guilty) but of power, and love, and a sound mind!
