MFM Daily Devotional 12 June 2021 – Healing From The Wounds Of Self-Guilt (I)



Fire Scripture: Rom. 8:1-19

Guilt is an emotional experience. It often arises from the feelings of a person’s conscience being stricken in a given situation, making the person feel bad. It could also arise from a situation where one should have been less bothered, but now feel ashamed, disappointed and frustrated. Human courts judge culprits and criminals guilty of offenses they lawfully or unlawfully committed.

Unfortunately, the situation makes people have a feelings of, “Perhaps I should not have done it; oh! I wish I never participated; if only I had known”, all these and many more. This is nothing but self-guilt! Self-guilt is therefore judgement against oneself. It brings regrets and selfcondemnation, either right or wrong. Guilt, when it is objective and leads you to repentance, is acceptable to God. As a child of God, you will definitely feel guilty when you fall into sin or get involved in an ungodly activity.

A victim of self-guilt often goes all the way to judge himself or herself wrongly to outright condemnation. There are instances in the Bible of people who sinned against God and suffered guilt, but repented genuinely. We have the example of David, when he committed adultery with Bathsheba (2 Sam.12-17). Jonah felt guilty when the storm arose in the sea; he was quick to agree that he had sinned against the Lord.

Both men repented before the Lord, and the Lord forgave them. This is the way of the Lord and His desire for His children. He knows our frailty and doesn’t want us to remain in guilt because the consequences can be grave. Rather, God wants us to confess our sins, pains, and offenses whenever they arise (1 John1:8- 9). He condemns our wrongdoings but doesn’t forsake us.

Once we repent of our sins, He draws us unto Himself in love and restores us to our rightful position as joint heirs with Christ Jesus. Therefore, remaining in self-guilt is spiritual and emotional self-imprisonment!

Memory Verse: Rom. 8:1 – There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Motivational Quote: When you are trapped in self-guilt, you are nothing but a prisoner of your own thoughts. Unless you let go, forgive yourself and forget the situation, you cannot move forward.

Prophetic Word: The Lord shall arise and deliver you from every conscious and unconscious self-imprisonment, in the name of Jesus.

HYMN: Nothing But The Blood

1. What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Oh! Precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2. For my pardon this I see
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing, this my plea
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Nothing can for sin atone
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4. This is all my hope and peace
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


1. I jump out of self-inflicted bondage, in the name of Jesus.
2. Enemies of peace in my life, jump out and die, in the name of Jesus.
3. O God, arise and deliver me from every evil verdict, in the name of Jesus.

4. I receive the freedom that Jesus Christ obtained for me on the cross at Calvary, in the name Jesus.
5. Agenda of darkness to keep me in perpetual bondage, break by fire, in the name of Jesus.
6. Lord Jesus, help me to forgive myself and others, in the name of Jesus.
7. Every spirit of self-destruction, I am not your candidate, come out of me and die, in the mighty name of Jesus
