YOU ARE NOT CONDEMNED

YOU ARE NOT CONDEMNED

Read:
Genesis 3:6-10

Bible in one year:
Jeremiah 47:1-49:22
Psalms 59

Hymn:
Sing hymn 4

Self condemnation is a natural phenomenon that feeds on the human awareness of guilt. In the book of Genesis 3:10, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and without anyone scolding them, they were condemned in their hearts:
“And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

Self condemnation is not the same as sorrow for sin. Sorrow for sin leads to repentance but self condemnation leads to fear, inferiority complex and low self esteem. The Bible teaches that God has offered us forgiveness of sin through the death of Jesus Christ. Self condemnation produces feelings of shame, disgrace, fear, terror, and depression, according to Ezra 9:6 that says:
“And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.”

And Isaiah 6:5:
“Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”

Self condemnation could sometimes be very dangerous in cases where it develops into depression, because it has succeeded in sending some people to their early graves. In Matthew 7:25, Judas Iscariot suffered from guilt and self condemnation,
“And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”

May the Lord deliver a user of this devotional suffering from guilt and self condemnation today in Jesus’ Name. Furthermore, 2 Corinthians 7:10 says:
“For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

The sorrow of the world is synonymous with guilt and self condemnation, the Bible says it brings death. Guilt defiles human life, produces feelings of unworthiness as in the case of the prodigal son in Luke 15:21. In the Name that is above all other names, the power of self condemnation is broken in your life today.

Memorise:
For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
1 John 3:20

Prayer Point:
Father, please let your perfect love drive away every iota of self-condemnation in my life in the Name of Jesus.

Numbers 6:2-5,8


What is a Nazarite? The very word means separation, and it applies to both men and women. True victory for God’s people must be along the lines of Nazariteship, separation from all the things that the world counts as absolutely essential.

CRUELTY, EXPLOITATION & STEALING

Although God loves the sinner, He hates their sins. For example, because God hates stealing, He commanded us not to steal (Exodus 20:15). In spite of God’s commandment however, there is still so much stealing going on at workplaces these days. One way employees steal from their employers is by inflating the cost...More
