John 6:37 “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
One of the tools of the enemy is to get us to believe that God’s love is conditional.
When we fail, he comes to assault us with thoughts like:
“How could God love someone who just did/said what you just did/said?”
He plays on our guilt to get us to see ourselves as unworthy, or even worthless. It is at those times, we must remind ourselves of the wonderful promises of the Word of God.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Jeremiah 31:3 “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
Psalm 139:17-18 “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.”
Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
When we balance the guilt with blame, confessing and repenting of our sin, God removes the guilt.
1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
When we learn how to better battle the thoughts that plague our minds, we can live more peacefully, and with joy.
