Topic: The Dangers of Guilt
[Seeds of Destiny 16 July 2019 Devotional]
Lying, stealing, cheating, immorality, watching corrupt movies, bitterness, etc., defile the conscience, and whatever defiles your conscience deflates your confidence
Scripture: The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. Proverbs 28:1
Thought For The Day: Nothing silences the voice of faith like the voice of accusation.
In the journey of Christianity, one of the things to watch out for is the guilt of sin. Sin is the enemy of every Christian. The guilt of sin is a terminal disease to the spirit of man; therefore, it must be avoided like a plague.
Now, we are going to look at some of the dangers of guilt.
The guilt of sin frustrates boldness in the spirit. Lying, stealing, cheating, immorality, watching corrupt movies, bitterness, etc., defile the conscience, and whatever defiles your conscience deflates your confidence (Proverbs 28:1).
Guilt is the magnet of fear (Genesis 3:7-10). Anywhere guilt is found, fear is present, and fear attracts the activity of the devil (Job 3:25).
Guilt establishes accusation both from the enemy and from within. Nothing silences the voice of faith like the voice of accusation, especially when it is time to pray, make decrees or bind the devil. This is because, satan, the accuser of the brethren (Revelations 12:10) would arise to accuse anyone with the guilt of sin.
The guilt of sin establishes weakness in the spirit. Samson was weakened by sin (Judges 16:16-20). And it is not possible to be weak in the spirit and be strong in faith.
Beloved, in this end time where the enemy is fighting the faith of God’s people, guard your heart from the guilt of sin.
Remember this: Nothing silences the voice of faith like the voice of accusation.
1.Avoid sin so as to avoid the guilt of it.
2.Depend on God’s grace to maintain a clear conscience.
3.Draw closer to God always and maintain the atmosphere of God’s Presence.
Prayer: Lord, please cleanse me from every form of guilt and draw me closer to Yourself every second of my life in Jesus’ Name.
