I forget about all the things that God has done for me and when I think about it, I feel guilty. I feel that I do not deserve his blessings. A lot of us feel this way because of sin. God does not want us to have negative emotions when we are blessed. He wants a relationship with us without any guilt or other negative emotions. So, how do we stop negative feelings when we sin?
Ask for Forgiveness
“For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.”, Hebrews 8:9. Ask him for forgiveness and remember he will not hold anything against you. Remember he is there to support us, so he will forgive and forget. It is hard to believe that because we live in a world that checks your pass credits, jobs, and more. Believe that he will do what he said he will do.
You cannot earn his love
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,” Ephesians 2:8. Grace means unearned favor. It is a gift. You cannot earn this gift. If you do not accept his grace, you will have negative emotions every time you sin. We have to learn from sin. Sin separates us from God and his mercy and love bring us back to him.
Keep the communicating with him
Praying is an important tool for your spiritual health. The more we talk to God, the better we feel. When we feel guilty about receiving a blessing, pray. Tell God how you feel and ask for his help. Thank him for your blessing and believe that he will never leave. You will feel better about sinning if you pray for his guidance
