Refuse to Feel Guilty

Are people trying to make you feel guilty because of something that Jesus has given you?

If they are, refuse to feel guilty because of enjoying God's blessings.

Learn from the man who had been sick for 38 years and was found by Jesus lying by the pool at the Sheep Gate waiting for the angel to move the water. (John 5:1-5)

Jesus asked him if he wanted to get well and he explained that since there was no one to help get into the water when it was moved by the angel, another person always stepped in before him. He therefore missed his healing since the first person who stepped in the water was healed. (John 5:6-7)

Jesus decided to help him and told him, "Rise up, take up your bed and walk." And immediately, the man was healed, he rose up, took his bed and walked. (John 5:8-9) 

However, when the Jews saw him walking, they reprimanded him saying, "Today is the Sabbath and it is against the law to carry your bed." (John 5:9-10) 

Instead of celebrating with him because he had been healed after being sick for 38 years, they tried to make him feel guilty for being able to carry his bed!!!

If you are in similar situation, do not give in to the wishes of the enemy and begin to feel guilty because you have been blessed and you can now do things you could not do. Rejoice and enjoy the blessings that God has bestowed on you.

For example, if you have been languishing in poverty for 38 years and now the Lord has opened doors and you can now buy designer outfits, buy them and wear them. Do not let people make you feel guilty for wearing haute couture fascinators to Church when they were not with you all those years you were sifting for sales in the thrift shop.

If you have been languishing in loneliness for 38 years and now God has blessed you with a good spouse, go out and enjoy yourselves together. Do not let people's eyes make you feel guilty for enjoying the company of your spouse when they were not with you all those years your heart ached for a companion.  

If you have been suffering from childlessness for 38 years and now Jesus has blessed you with a baby, spend as much time as you want with your baby. Do not let people make you feel guilty for resigning from your high flying job so that you can be a work at home mom.

Therefore regardless of the problem that you may have been suffering from for many years, if God has blessed you and solved your problem do not let anyone make you feel guilty for enjoying the blessings of God.
