There are many who, after being forgiven by God and after seeking the forgiveness of those they have offended, find it extremely difficult to live in the freedom that forgiveness brings.
Sometimes they don’t feel they were worthy to be forgiven. This is true; all of us stand before God by His grace. But this is a liberating truth of scripture, not something that condemns us.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, (Romans 8:1 NIV)
Even if you don’t feel worthy of forgiveness, choose to forgive yourself.
Once you do, train yourself to accept that you have been forgiven by building your faith. Know what the Bible says regarding the forgiveness of confessed sins. Because:
…faith [comes] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17 NKJV)
The Bible assure us that we are forgiven when we confess our sins. Remember – believe what the Bible says about you… not what your feelings say!
- Find the verses.
- Read the verses.
- Memorize the verses.
- Meditate on the verses.
Let them become alive to you. It’s the living word of God that makes faith come alive. Pray them whenever you feel the condemning attack of satan saying you’re not forgiven.
Why don’t you do some research in the Bible today? It’s a great form of worship.
I’ll post you the ones I recommend next time.
