Do you have guilt, destructive thoughts, thoughts of not being valued, etc.?  If yes, you need healing for past or present goodness problems.  In fact, the negative issues listed below create offenses in your heart, which impairs your ability to be good and show love to others.  To learn more about goodness read: Part 1: How to Achieve Genuine Goodness? and Part 2: How to Overcome Evil with Good.

Read through the list below. If any of the negative issues, unhealthy beliefs, or behaviors on this list evokes a negative emotion, go back to 5–Finding Painful Memories and Healing Issues to identify the related painful memories.  Be sure to loose/put off the oppressive energies and spirits attached to each painful memory.  It is helpful to keep a prayer journal to track your healing.

Shame about things done or not done

Guilt: a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, crime, wrong, etc., whether real or imagined.

Fear of punishment: penalty imposed on an offender

Destructiveness: tearing down; criticism

Feeling inadequate: not sufficient; not equal to what is required

Devalue:  to make someone not feel they have value or worth

Selfishness: devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one’s own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others

Loose UNHEALTHY BELIEFS AND LIES—bind in opposite

I am bad.  (Bind/put on: I have the goodness of Christ in me.)

I am not good enough.

I am unforgivable. (Bind/put on: Christ forgives me.)

I am so far from goodness that I can’t have it or express it.  I am pathetic.

It is useless trying to attain this condition.  I have tried everything but I am so sinful and flawed.

I lost my connection to God and good by being a bad person.

If people knew of my lack of goodness, I would be rejected instantly.

I will fake goodness if that will get me what I want.  I’d rather have ‘feeling good’ than ‘goodness.’

‘The good die young.’  I will take what I want by force.  Good people are phony.

I’d rather be bluntly honest and tell people how it is!


Pray and bind/put on all the following attributes and truths to your mind and heart:

Meek:  patient and mild; not inclined to anger or resentment

Doing what is right:  correct; fitting; appropriate

Being helpful: of service; assist; aid –valuing others

Self-sacrificing: sacrifice of one’s interests, usually for the supposed advantage of others; self-denial

Morally Excellent: conforming to the rules of right conduct (opposed to immoral). Virtuous in sexual matters; chaste


When I do what is good, I will receive glory, honor, and peace… Rom. 2:10; 13:3b

Because of God’s goodness to and in me, I can be good to those who mistreat or hate me. Luke 6:27; Matt. 5:44; Ps. 25:4-7; 31:19

I can look out for other people’s interests above my own (Phil. 2:14), and to please others for their good… Rom. 15:2

I am ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing every consideration (true humility) for everyone. Titus 3:1,2

I can give a blessing instead of returning evil for evil and seek to do good to all people. 1 Pet. 3:9; 1 Thes. 5:15

After I received Jesus as my Savior (saved from sin and God’s wrath); He began a good work in me, and He will complete it (Phil. 1:6).  I am His workmanship created for good works.  Eph. 2:10; Phil. 2:12b,13

I know I have goodness when my mouth speaks what is good (Matt. 12:34b,35), which is the fruit of the Spirit and Light in me (Gal. 5:22) along with righteousness and truth (Eph. 5:7-10).  I am known by my fruit (Matt. 7:20) and engage in good deeds to meet pressing needs. Titus 3:14

I will not lose heart in doing good, knowing I will be rewarded.  When I have the opportunity, I will be good to all people, especially to those belonging to the family of God. Gal. 6:9,10; Eh. 6:7,8
