One feeling condemned or in the pall.of negativity cannot have confidence that he is in good stead with God, that he is a son of God, a member of the family:.Psalms 27:3-6. But, when you know you are fully accepted by God for all time (how do you know when?), then you have total confidence:.Isaiah 50:8 "He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? Let us stand together. Who is mine adversary? Let him come near to me.".-.an expression of confidence.
    Romans 8:33-35 "Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul....." Hebrews 13:5 ".....for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."

Guilt causes us to feel undeserving of any good. If we don't believe that we are righteous, we must believe then that we are unrighteous. And if you believe that way a little now, for sure, that's pumped to increase. What do you believe about yourself? If Christ is in you, what is righteous about you is unending. God just does not say anything that is untrue. If He calls you righteous, well, what do you think? You already have God's approval and are His friend, His son, His daughter if you have accepted (believe) Jesus Christ, meaning you know He is real, lives now, is aware of you personally, and you want Him to be in charge of leading your life from now on towards good. Make a decision to accept that. 
    Realize you are 'dead':.Colossians 3:3 "For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God."
    Realize you are now Christ's workmanship:.Ephesians 2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Isaiah 64:8 "But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter. And we all are the work of thy hand."

Realize you are now blameless in the Father's eyes:.1Thessalonians 3:13 "To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints."

Notice that your heart becomes established ('stablish' is old english) when you realize that you are unblameable, where nothing can be blamed against you ever again, where nothing can ever again separate you from a relationship with the Father. At His coming, your heart will still be that way. Why?

The mind off of Philippians 1:6 is headed toward alienation. Then it's just a short step to doubting your joy in God. 
    A guilt ridden mind can have no confidence (1John 2:28) and believes that he is cut off from God.(though that is never how God sees it.Psalms 31:22; Hebrews 11:1).thus does not believe the scripture about God's grace:.Romans 6:14
    Guilt casts away confidence (Hebrews 10:35) and in our minds takes away our participation in Christ:.Hebrews 3:6,14. You can't be strong around someone who you think is not sure of you. That's why God wants us to be fully confident in that He accepts us whether or not we still have faults:.Colossians 2:2; Hebrews 10:22,23.(thanks to Christ).

The devil's main trick is to get you against yourself.
