Conviction is an anchor that literally keeps your mind , body and spirit suspended in agony and defeat. You can’t function because you are so heavy with all of the issues of the moment that it becomes almost impossible to comprehend , and no matter how you try to get away from the situation you end up right where you started. It is the enemies job to use your regrets against you and make you think that failure is the only thing your good at .
Don’t allow shortcomings to take over and steal the identity God has provided , your a child of the Living God and you are exactly as he purposed you to be . The devil can only make the conviction grow when you allow it to engulf you and break you down . As Christians we often forget that some things in life are inevitable and are used as a tool to get your attention and redirect you back on course. God already knew that you would cuss out your neighbor , or take that drink , or sneak around and have that affair. Nothing takes God by surprise so stop beating yourself up , you have been forgiven just confess it and move on .
Sincerity is what moves God to work on your behalf and pour unlimited blessings upon you . Once you step out of the will of God don’t stay stuck there as if all hope is gone , the very fact that it’s eating you up inside is a sure sign that you want to please God . Think about it , if it didn’t bother you there would be no reason for the tears in the midnight hour , or a feeling of shame and worthlessness . Confession is good for the soul , tell God about it and ask for forgiveness and press on to not make that mistake again . Find a way to lift up your inner man and love on God more and more , never returning to that dark place again .
Limited minded people will always question your salvation , but last time I checked they where not Jesus The Christ !!! Stop letting narrow minded folks dictate how you should live and walk in your spiritual relationship . This is a one on one love affair between you and Jesus , work out your own salvation with fear and trembling ( that’s bible) . Have a talk with the master and let him set you free and issue a “not guilty” verdict.
Love and Blessings
