Dealing with Guilt from Others
Many people today live in guilt for things that happened in ther past. Guilt is a spirit to keep the believer in a defeated life instead of victorious life. Did you know that guilt does not come from God but from the kingdom of darkness?
A person could have lived with a controlling person and dealing with guilt and shame since the controlling person shamed them with guilt to get their way. Can any of you relate?
Are you one of these people that when something goes wrong around you, you immediately feel guilty even if it is not your fault? You feel slimmed by this invisible force?
Did you know guilt keeps you bound! Not only that, the effects of guilt separates you from your heavenly Father. You feel shamed and guilty but it is really the enemy, Satan the accuser of all man, working through the controlling person, to keep you from knowing the Love of the Father.
Again, the feelings of guilt is to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10) your joy and peace with Father god. He wants to separate you from the love of God.
Jesus is slow to anger and is full of mercy (Ps. 145:8). He loves you so much and does not put guilt on His children. He convicts in a very loving way. Satan slims us to feel yucky about self to stay in shame and self unforgiveness – self hatred.
The enemy will lie and tell you that your sin is to big for God to forgive. That is the lie from the enemy and not from God. God loves you so much that he sent his son for your sins. We have access to the father through Jesus. Jesus has His arms open to make the past right through his shed blood He did on the cross for you. God’s Word also tells us of His loving kindness and mercy side towards those who turn to Him and who fear (respect & honor) Him.
The Effects of Guilt
Once a person is separated from God through guilt, they turn to other things such as gambling, pornography, addictions, etc. to feel better. You see when you gamble or do pornography, it is a temporary feel good stimulation. In your brain your serotonin go back up. It is a temporary rush to cover the pain of self hatred, self rejection, etc.
It is a temporary fix but usually guilt returns back worse than before. It is a vicious cycle. The Bible tells us to draw near to God with assurance, having our heart’s sprinkled clean from an evil conscience (Hebrews 10:22).
Satan is the accuser of the brethren. He loves to accuse past failures and use others to accuse a person. His job is to accuse you but you have to discern good and evil (Hebrews 5:14) and realize who is talking to you in your mind and not receive it and believe God’s Word as Truth.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
What you need to do is your past is in the past if you have confessed your sins to the Lord. Remember fiery darts are accusations from the enemy and you put out the fiery darts with God’s truth. You are a new creation in him so believe it. Do your failures outweigh the Blood of Jesus, or does the Blood outweigh your failures?
If you sin, then go to the Lord Jesus Christ and confess your sins. Two, then forgive yourself and see yourself washed by the Blood of the Lamb.
If a spirit is projecting guilt on you, then recognize it and cast it down. 2 Cor. 10:5.
Many times we jump through hoops to satisfy the other person to receive their acceptance. The fact is, most likely you won’t or if they do, they will draw you in the beat you up with guilt and shame. You have to see these people are selfish and cannot love themselves. They deal with self-hatred as well.
If a person deliberately puts guilt on you, resist that spirit of guilt and don’t fall for the manipulation and control. You do not need to perform to that person to be accepted. You are already accepted by the Lord Jesus Christ.
