Guilt is not a popular dinnertime topic. Yet it is something we all experience. The common reactions to feelings of guilt include denial, trivialization, covering up, avoidance, blame shifting, rationalization, dulling the emotions and one’s conscience with an addiction, anaesthetizing the soul with psychiatric medication, or punishing oneself. Such responses invariably point to a “negative view” of guilt and thus a hesitation or unwillingness to face feelings of guilt, one of the “indicators of the soul“.
Do you have a smoke detector in your home? I have one, which can also detect carbon monoxide and thus will send a signal upon detection. When there is smoke in your home from a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning you will be thankful for the alarm system. You will probably leave your home quickly, thankful for your safety. Now what if those feelings of guilt function like a spiritual alarm system when something is “smoldering” deep in your soul? What if this is actually God calling you to forgiveness, repentance, healing, restoration and to a deeper relationship with Him? True, feelings of guilt are “not pleasant”, but neither is smoke which can irritate the eyes and much more. It takes courage to face our pain, our past, or our guilt. But what if the “negative feelings” are designed to lead you to an incredibly positive outcome? Is it possible that you are “guilty” of a negative view of guilt?
I invite you to listen to my audio message on Freedom from Guilt which develops the theme of how guilt can lead us to God’s grace.
This message strikes at the core of the soul through the light, love and truth of Jesus, with Holy Spirit healing power, bringing conviction, repentance, forgiveness, restoration, grace and freedom in Christ.
There is no other way to wholeness and true freedom for our wounded human souls apart from Christ Jesus.
This is the HOPE of our Heavenly Father
WHO’S LOVE is far greater than our
sin and guilt and shame (see also the anointed message on “Shame“)
Our Heavenly Father so loved us that HE gave Jesus to die for us on the cross and rise again in glory, so that we may be free of guilt and shame and be reconciled to HIM through Christ and in turn,
to ourselves and one another.
This is an anointed message to ‘’heal the
brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound “ (Isaiah 61:1)
May GOD Bless this ministry abundantly in Jesus Name
