But guilt still plagues me. It can weigh me down, darken my outlook, enfeeble me, and keep me from living victoriously.
That's why I was thrilled to find this nugget in Isaiah 44, verse 22, Jehovah speaking through the prophet:
I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist.
Return to me, for I have redeemed you.
Isn't that a beautiful pciture? Because Jesus Christ paid the penalty in full, God has swept away our sins - gone! Just like the fog in the photo above, which was gone within minutes, our failings are nothing more than a misty memory, one that can do no more harm. We are redeemed! When we are attacked by the Accuser, we can run to the open arms of our heavenly Father, as bright as a cloud-free sky.
And that's a reason to rejoice.
What do you think? Am I alone in this, or do you suffer attacks through feelings of guilt? What do you do about it? Let's share!
