When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth. John 16:13 New King James Version
There are two types of guilt.
One comes from the conviction from the Holy Spirit when we have done wrong.
The other comes from Satan which gives you a wrong impression that your sins are not forgiven when you repent.
One is healthy, the other destructive.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 New King James Version Many times the Holy Spirit has convicted me when I have been mean spirited (said or done nasty things to others). He will not leave me alone until I repent. This is good for our relational life, spiritual life with Jehovah and physical health.
Whenever Satan tries to bring up this past sin to lay an unwarranted guilt conscience on me I just remind him of Christ’s forgiveness. If we listen to Satan we will constantly be worried if we have been forgiven (some people will bring up past wrongs to try to manipulate me which is how Satan uses them. I wisely, meekly and humbly remind them of my repentance and that it is they who are committing the sin now not me by trying to enslave me to past wrongs so they can get something from me they do not deserve) and constantly trying to seek forgiveness where there is none to be sought.
Satan will work in other areas of your life as well i.e. you are fat, you do not spend enough time with family, your grades are not good enough, you do not make enough money.
Can you list any others?
Listening to him will destroy our spiritual life, our physical and mental health.
When Satan tries to lay a guilt conscience on me I just remind him that because I have repented I am forgiven. Then I ask him if he has repented to Jesus for all the wrong he has done to Jehovahs children. Joseph- Anthony: Green
That is when it is best to go to Jehovah in prayer and He will guide you to the truth and destroy Satans wicked schemes.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is my Judge) for acquitting me of my filthy sin when I honestly repent unto You, the Supreme Judge. Thank you for teaching not to fall for the wicked filthy ones lies when he tries to lay a guilt conscience on me. I sing halleluiah to You in the name of He whose blood has washed me clean as fresh morning snow Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
