From Dear Jesus by Sarah Young
There is no condemnation for those who belong to Me, because through Me the law of the Spirit of Life set you free from the law of sin and death.
I believe You have freed me from condemnation through Your death on the cross for my sins. Yet I continue to struggle with feelings of condemnation— sometimes for no apparent reason. I long to experience the full freedom You have made possible. I know I need the help of Your Spirit, but I’m unsure how to engage His assistance.
Beloved, you can ask My Spirit to help you find freedom from condemning feelings. Acknowledge that those feelings have no basis in reality. Then, look to Me through eyes of faith. Delight yourself in My heavenly smile of approval. The more you connect with Me through focusing on My Presence, the more you can receive My loving affirmation. The best antidote to feelings of condemnation is experiencing My Love for you. You can also fight condemning feelings by pondering the truths of the gospel. The devil is the father of lies, and he specializes in deception. Fight his hellish lies with biblical truth.
Finally, remember that My Spirit is the Spirit of Life. Feelings of condemnation drain you of energy, leaving you vulnerable. As My Spirit fills you with Life, you are empowered to live abundantly—to the full.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. – Romans 8:1–2
By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life. – Psalm 42:8
He [the devil] was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. – John 8:44
The thief comes only to steal and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. – John 10:10
