Moments Of Faith Daily Devotional 21 September 2023 By Prophet Frank Udoh


SCRIPTURE: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17).


Some individuals find themselves haunted by the weight of guilt and lingering memories from their past. Their relentless struggle to overcome the pain and remorse is a testament to the burdens they carry. Whether it’s the result of regrettable actions or the enduring scars of past hurts, many remain trapped in the shadows of their own history.
However, there’s a profound concept that can offer solace and liberation: the idea of being born again, of becoming a new creation. It signifies a transformative shift, wherein you emerge as an entirely fresh individual, unburdened by the past. The person who once bore the weight of those dreadful experiences ceases to exist in the eyes of Christ. The “new you” stands absolved of all guilt, liberated from errors and imperfections.
In Romans 5:18, we find the words, “Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” These verses convey a profound truth: Jesus was not only delivered for the sake of our sins; He was also resurrected to secure our justification (Romans 4:25). What does this mean?
It means that you have been declared “not guilty,” with no charges held against you. The reason is simple: you are a new creation, a fresh entity without a past. So, even if the weight of past wrongs continues to haunt you, remember that these feelings are rooted in memory and emotions. In Christianity, we do not navigate our lives solely based on our feelings; instead, we walk in faith, relying on the affirmation of God’s Word.
Do not allow bitter memories from years gone by to hold you captive or provoke tears of remorse, pleading for God’s forgiveness. Instead, grasp the truth found in Romans 4:25 (AMPC), which states that Jesus was raised from the dead for our “acquittal,” balancing our spiritual account and absolving us of all guilt before God. When you come to Jesus, He liberates you from every form of bondage, as declared in John 8:36, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” Rejoice in this newfound freedom! Hallelujah!

Dear Heavenly Father,

I express my gratitude for the new life I have found in Christ. Your divine nature within me has empowered me to become a master over life’s challenges, granting me dominion over the complexities of this world. I serve you with uncontainable joy and radiate with glory, all while being free from the burdens of sin or reproach.
I thank you for the immeasurable gift of righteousness, holiness, and irreproachability that you have bestowed upon me. In the precious name of Jesus, I affirm these truths. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY: Galatians 6:14-16 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. 15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. 16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace [be] on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, [even] to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
