Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame

Psalm 51 1-2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 51:1-2

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.

There isn’t anything you can do to earn God’s forgiveness. You are forgiven because of who God is not who you are. You are forgiven because God is merciful, loving and compassionate towards His people. God sent His only Son to pay the price for your sins. You have been washed from your sins by the precious blood of the Lamb. Confess that you are a sinner who needs a Savior and believe that Jesus died to save you. You can let go of the guilt and shame of sin you’ve been carrying with you because God has forgiven you and wiped your slate clean and now it’s time for you to forgive yourself and live the life God has planned for you.

Take Refuge in the Lord     

Psalm 57 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 57:1

Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge.  I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.

 

There are times when God delivers you from the storm and there are times when He wants you to go through the storm so that when it’s over you come out stronger than before. If you find yourself going through a storm, take refuge in the shadow of His wings and remember He will never leave you and He will see you through it.
