Day 8 Giving God Possession of Our Guilt and Shame (Past)

John 8:36 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

Guilt and shame are the tools of the enemy. If we are ashamed we will hide from God. Adam and Eve hid from God after they sinned because they were afraid and they covered their nakedness because they were ashamed. Guilt and shame come from sin and only from sin. When Jesus forgives us of our sin He also removes guilt and shame. We are not left with scars and reminders of our past failures, He washes us white as snow so that we are eternally reminded of His glory and His mercy

Today we fast and pray for the removal of ALL guilt and shame. We put our past in God’s possession believing that He has forgiven us, redeemed us and removed our stains. We declare today that we are in Christ and we are new creations, “old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.” We will no longer receive guilt or shame and we will no longer operate in them either, casting them upon others. We proclaim that we are reconciled to God and are now the ministers of reconciliation. “He who the Son sets free is free indeed.”
