“You, Lord, took up my case; you redeemed my life.”
(Lamentations 3:58 NIV)

It is always a terrible feeling to be accused of something that you did not do. The motive behind making an accusation is to create a guilty conviction. Satan is called the “accuser” because he continually makes false accusations to oppress the people of God with guilt.(Rev 12:10) Satan’s plan is to stimulate guilty feelings about sins already forgiven with the motive of creating doubt in the finished work of Christ Jesus who died a substitutionary death as payment for the sins of the entire world. Putting our trust in the Lord Jesus and confessing our sins to him in sincere repentance forever releases us from the bondage of guilt. We have complete peace with God knowing that our sins have been forgiven through Christ Jesus so when in doubt confess them out. Case closed!
