“For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.” (Hebrews 8:12, ESV)
Do you think God was teasing when he said that? Was he exaggerating when he said he would cast our sins as far as the east is from the west? Do you actually believe He would make a statement like, “I will not hold their iniquities against them,” and then rub our noses in them whenever we ask for help? Of course you don’t! You and I just need an occasional reminder of God’s nature, his forgiving nature.
Prayer: Lord, Thank you for the grace to keep returning to you.
