We all make mistakes; sometimes we even make the same mistakes over and over again. Don’t let the shame or guilt discourages you.
Jesus carried your mistakes and weaknesses to the cross 2000 years ago. HE already knew what your downfalls would be and HE will forgive you the minute you asked for HIS forgiveness so why are you beating yourself? That is what I have to purposely tell myself daily, even till today.
Once we repent, God forgives all of our sins. So no matter what your story is: theft, lying, cheating, adultery or even addictions; when you repented and asked God for forgiveness, HE already forgave you the moment you asked for it. HE now wants you to start forgiving yourself.
When the enemy comes and condemns you, remember that God does not condemn you. Bind the enemy’s lies in Jesus’ name because there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. Behold, old things have passed away, the new is here.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.
