Emotions can be deceiving people… that is backwards thinking compared to what I used to believe! If I'm feeling a certain way, it must be truth right? No. Lies. Feelings can be confusing, God is not the author of confusion. Should we feel guilty about what we did last night, last week, last month, and then dwell on it, beat ourselves up for it, feel like we are unworthy of what God has promised us? What if I told you that this is the devil speaking to your mind… not God. Woah! Right?!?!? :) It is the devil! God doesn't want to shame us, make us feel unworthy… we are the heirs to the throne!!!
Conviction happens by God, not guilt. Conviction puts a realization in our conscience that says this is wrong. We stop it, repent, and its done! It's over! God doesn't hold it against us, the devil does.
I'm just gonna leave this song right here… :)
