How do I know if God has forgiven me?

How do I know if God has forgiven me?

If you have repented and asked God for forgiveness, then He has forgiven your sins. For those who accept Jesus as their savior and repent, all their sins are forgiven, they do not need to live with guilt (Romans 8:1-2).

What is repentance?

Regret is knowing that what you did was wrong and feeling sad for having done a bad thing. The repentant person wants to change, to make amends for their mistake. It's not just guilt, it's a change of attitude.

The Bible says that God rejoices when someone repents of their sins (Luke 15:10), because those who are repentant are ready to change their lives and embrace God. Then God forgives your sins and helps you free yourself from them.

But I keep sinning. And now, does God still forgive?

Yes, if you are truly sorry. Paul, inRomans 7:14-25, says that he wants to do good but continues to do evil. This is a struggle that everyone has because we are not perfect yet. Some sins are easy to let go of when we repent, others take time and work to be freed from. The most important thing is our attitude towards sin.

When you commit a sin, you can give up and let it continue, or you can fight to change and make amends for your mistakes (Romans 12:2). Even if you fail, if you keep fighting and trust God to give you strength, one day you will be set free.

I repented and asked for forgiveness but I still feel guilty. Has God forgiven me?

Yes, but the devil tries to accuse you, so that you feel that you are not forgiven and fall (Revelation 12:10). When you regret but still feel guilty, you should reject that feeling because it is deceptive.Romans 8:33-34it says:

“Who will bring any accusation against God’s chosen ones? It is God who justifies them. Who will condemn them? It was Christ Jesus who died; and furthermore, that he was resurrected and is at the right hand of God, and also intercedes for us.”

Sometimes we can't leave sin behind because we still need to fix something with someone. Asking forgiveness from another person can be difficult but it helps you live free from guilt. On the other hand, you may need to forgive someone (Matthew 6:12). And it's even possible that you need to forgive yourself. If God forgives, then so should you.
