Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past (Is 43:16)
Guilt is a gift…from the Deceiver.
Just as God, in His nature cannot lie, Satan is the Father of Lies. He has planted many deceitful thoughts and feelings in our minds in the course of our lives They can come from our parents, our government, even our church, and of course, ourselves.
I pray that the light of truth will expose them and we’ll uncover and discover more and more truth each day.
We have all had failings. There is not one that God won’t forgive. And dwelling on our past failures sabotages the future!
Fighting the past is a spiritual battle. Trust in His Word which says, “See, I’m doing a new thing.”
When guilt rears its ugly head, recognize it for what it is, pray, and move on.
