1 John 3:20 Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.

When we miss the mark, it can leave us feeling guilty and shameful. That guilt and shame didn’t come from God. That’s coming from the devil who’s attempting to make us feel like God turned His back on us because of our behavior and is angry with us.

These are lies. God knew what we were going to do before we did it. That’s why He sent Jesus to die on the cross for all of our sins (1 John 2:2). Through Him (Jesus), we have forgiveness of sins. So, there’s no need to feel guilty for what we’ve done wrong. Forgiveness has already been put into place. Receive it and don’t let guilt and shame hold you down any longer.
