No Condemnation

Is there something on your mind tonight that you just can't forgive yourself for - some mistake, misdeed or something you said that keeps coming back to haunt you and keep you awake? You wish you could go back and right the situation, but since you can't, the "tapes" of the incident are on "replay" ...going around and around in the video of your mind.

Stop to consider where this self-condemnation is coming from. If you have already repented of any wrong-doing, these condemning thoughts are not from God, but from Satan.

God tells us clearly, "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit" (Romans 8;1, NKJV).

Sure, you may have "blown it," but you have been cleansed and forgiven. It is not God's will that you continue to lie awake tearing yourself down, or letting Satan do it for you. Since your Heavenly Father has forgiven you, He wants you to forgive yourself and rest peacefully.

God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, I thank You that the secret to my victory over self-condemnation is knowing, without a doubt, that there is no condemnation in You! I confess what I've done, repent of it before You, and trust that in You I am forgiven and cleansed. My mind is now free from all bondage concerning this incident. I ask You now to fill my mind with thoughts of You, so I may peacefully sleep. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
