You know how you feel so guilty and ashamed when you do something wrong or how you feel so disappointed in yourself after going back to a habit you promised yourself to never go back to, especially when it’s the 20th time you are breaking the same promise. Sometimes many of us just decide to continue with it because we believe we can’t let go of it, so we give up and get comfortable with it.
Sin is the same way, many times it’s not always about the sin we commit, but our attitude after we sin. The devil can be so tricky that he feeds more on your faith when you sin, he makes you feel bad about yourself and fills you with self guilt so rather than asking God for forgiveness we run away from God’s presence due to the fact that we believe we are unworthy of him, and believe we do not have the right to pray.
We forget about God’s grace and mercies 2CORINTHIANS :9 says “…My grace is sufficient for you [My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough-always available- regardless of the situation]; for[My] power is being perfected [and is completed and shows itself most effectively] in your weakness”….. We forget that Jesus has died for our sins and all we have to do is confess our sins. Ask God for strength and ask him to walk with you in every area of your life.
He is our father and his love is deeper than the love our parent has for us and if they can forgive us anytime we disappoint them why won’t God do the same when his love for us is greater than theirs. So therefore don’t be too ashamed to talk to him, never let your weakness draw you apart from him. Ask him for strength and ask him to walk with you in every area of your life. Don’t dwell in your sin.
