In God’s Word and will, you notice that there’s always a path to something better. That something IS Him and living IN Him. Again, guilt is natural for something we understand that we did wrong or sinned. But let’s remember that sin and guilt CAN be used by God for His good purposes, which are, by definition, good FOR us too.
Questions for further thought:
1. Do you hold on to your guilt and try to “think” your way out of too many situations?
2. Do you recognize that you need to ask God how He would like to use this guilt for His power and plan for you?
Challenge: Don’t necessarily suppress guilt; DO allow shame to be taken away so that God can use you for His purposes. He wishes to redeem you even in the midst of great shame and guilt. Let Him and let Him do it today.
