June 20 The Sea of Forgetfulness

God will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.  Micah 7:19

I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more” . God forgets your sins once He forgives them. Since He has chosen to forget them, He doesn’t want you to remind Him about them.

One of my college professors used to say, “After we ask for forgiveness, God puts up a little sign that says, ‘No fishing.’” He has cast our sins into the sea of forgetfulness, and we aren’t to go fishing there. Thank God that everything in the past is forgiven and forgotten. We have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus.

Accept that God has cast your sin into the sea of forgetfulness so you can have power in prayer. Seek reconciliation in your broken relationships and restitution for wrongs you have committed. In the future, if you sin, ask God to forgive you and to continue the process of sanctification in your life. Receive His forgiveness and draw near to Him again in confident faith: Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,

by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water

Prayer: Father, I desire to draw near You with a heart fully assured by faith. You have cleansed me from sin, and I praise Your name! In Jesus’ name, amen.

Thought: You can walk into God’s presence without feeling condemned. Reading: 1 Chronicles 10–12; John 6:45–71; Isaiah 43:25; Hebrews 10:19–22
