Any Christians have been seduced into thinking that they must earn the right to experience the forgiveness of sin and the joy of answered prayer. Even seasoned Christians struggle to overcome feelings of unworthiness, fear, doubt, and condemnation that the enemy sends their way. The result is that they never experience the standard of living God intended for them.
The truth is that God, through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, has already made you righteous. Nothing you could ever do will make you more or less righteous in God's eyes. As you gain biblical understanding of how this right standing with God is meant to work in your life, you'll begin to experience the joy of your salvation. The reality of the promises found in the Word of God will then begin to fall into place.
