Satan is the king of guilt. He attempts to make us feel guilty about everything we do. One of the areas that Satan attempts to make us feel guilty in is prioritizing God.

If we haven’t prioritized God like we should (prayed, read the Bible, gone to church), he’ll try to make us feel guilty. If we’ve made an effort to prioritize God, Satan will try to make us feel guilty because we haven’t done more. This type of guilt could make someone have a nervous breakdown and give up. He’s attempting to use our desire to please God against us.

When it comes to prioritizing God, there needs to be balance. We should want to spend time with God, but we don’t need to feel bad if we didn’t do as much as we could. If we get the unction to do more, carve a little more time out of our day to spend with God. If we feel bad or guilty because we haven’t spent as much time with God as we could have, rebuke the devil, and know God is pleased with us.

The amount of time we spend with God doesn’t determine if He’s pleased with us or not. If it’s 1 minute or 1 hour, God loves and is pleased with us. He’s pleased not because of our efforts, but because of the efforts of Jesus Christ. Since we’re in Christ, all of His efforts have made us as righteous as we’re ever going to be.

Colossians 1:19-20 For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.
