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.

Faith Over Fear

Psalm 56 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 56:3

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

David was afraid for his life yet he trusted in God. If he had let fear over take his faith, he may have had a different outcome. Likewise, the enemy will use fear to keep you from the plans God has for your life.  He knows if he keeps putting doubts and fear in your mind you will never step out in faith to accomplish what God has planned for you. Turn to God, put your trust in Him alone. When you are afraid, step out in faith knowing that God is with you and He will equip you for what He has called you to do.  So many people never achieve the success God has planned for them because they are too afraid to take the first step. Don’t let fear keep you from living the life God has planned for you.
