Your Sins Are Forgiven

I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.
Isaiah 43:25

If God chooses to never remember our sins that have been forgiven, then why do we? We ought to forget the things that God forgets. But it seems that human nature tends to remember the things that we ought to forget and forget the things that we should remember.

How often do you recall the failures in your past? Or what regrets keep haunting you? It’s a powerful thing for God to never remember the things that have been removed from our past. More importantly, God chooses to forget! He chooses to never bring up the charges against us.

However, the devil, our accuser, constantly reminds us of our mistakes and mishaps. He tries to keep us thinking of the dark past. It is the past failures that keep us from a rewarding future.

When you are reminded of your “forgiven and forgotten” past, just remember that brokenness brings blessings. God uses our past failures to show His glory and grace. God uses the broken things to provide blessedness. Do you remember the 300 men of Gideon’s army that faced overwhelming odds but when they started breaking their clay pots, the Midianites were so scared and confused they killed one another?

Have you ever considered how God has used brokenness in your life? We tend to think that brokenness disqualifies us or weakens us. However big the sins may be, if God forgives and forgets them then we should rejoice and experience the power of grace. 

Let grace have victory in your life. Seek forgiveness in Jesus’ name and rest in the promises of God.

Pray

Lord, allow Your Light to shine through my darkness and brighten my future. Help me to know Your character so I may learn to deal with my remembrance.
