I remember when some scripture used to make me cringe a little: Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I run away from where You are? (Ps 139:7) God sees me everywhere. What about when I do something bad? He’s watching me. I know He thinks I’m bad. That made me feel guilty. But that’s not God’s heart at all.
We don’t surprise God. He knows our humanity. He made us. And before we are redeemed, of course we’re going to do bad things. And good people without God do bad things. Even good people who do know God do bad things. He knows that. And He loves us anyway.
God’s love covers our sin. All we have to do is repent. It’s that easy. Confess it. Give it to Jesus. Ask Him to help you be who He wants you to be. If it happens again, confess it again. It won’t do to carry on with a sinful lifestyle because all you have to do is confess your sin and go back to do it again. True confession is a conviction to want to change.
Ask the Holy Spirit to renew your mind and give you new thoughts. Let go of guilt. Once you give it to Jesus, it’s not yours anymore. You are free.
