Rick Warren 5th June 2024 Daily Hope Devotional: You Don’t Have to Live With Guilt

Welcome to Today’s Rick Warren Devotional (Daily Hope) for 5th June 2024. The Word of God is food to the spirit man. Read and digest the word of the Lord for today and see how powerfully it will impact you.

Today’s Topic: You Don’t Have to Live With Guilt

Scripture: “A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance.”

Scripture: Proverbs 28:13 (TLB)

Rick Warren 5th June 2024 Daily Hope Devotional

God is always ready to give you another chance. That’s a foundational piece of Christianity. We’ve all been irresponsible. We’ve all screwed up. The Bible tells us, “Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins” (Ecclesiastes 7:20 NLT).

You’re not meant to go through life with a guilt trip about all the ways you’ve been irresponsible. Guilt destroys your confidence, damages your relationships, keeps you stuck in the past, and even hurts your health. I read a report a few years back that said 70 percent of people in the hospital could leave if they knew how to resolve their guilt.

God wants far better for your life than that. You don’t want to live with guilt. And here’s an important truth to always hang on to: You don’t have to.

Instead, God wants you to live with a sense of promise and hope. He can even bring good out of the foolish decisions that you’ve made if you’ll give those failures to him.

How do you do that?

Admit to God you’ve made a mistake. It doesn’t surprise him. And it won’t change his perception of you. When you take this step, here’s what you can expect from him:

God forgives instantly. The very moment you admit your sin to God, he forgives you.

God forgives freely. You don’t need to earn it, and you’ll never deserve it.

God forgives completely. He wipes your sin absolutely clean.

The Bible promises that a “man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance” (Proverbs 28:13 TLB).

If you’re mired in guilt and shame, then you’ll likely perpetuate whatever problem you have. You’ll tell yourself that you blew it, so you’re bad. Since you’re bad, you believe you’ll blow it again. It’s a nasty cycle we often can’t seem to escape from—at least not on our own.

You need a power beyond yourself. You need a Savior! You need to let go of your guilt and live in the freedom of God’s forgiveness.
