TOPIC: GOD REMEMBERS YOUR SINS NO MORE
DATE: MONDAY OCTOBER 5th, 2015
“And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more..”
Hebrews 10:17 (KJV)
Sin is a powerful weapon that the devil uses to condemn you and make you feel guilty. Perhaps you have experienced this before: you are standing in the place of prayer making a demand for a particular thing when you suddenly remember something that you did some time back and the zeal to pray just disappears; it feels like you have been deflated and your prayer changes to one of repentance. Has this ever happened to you? That is the power of sin that the devil is using against you because you were once ignorant. Today I have come to re-emphasise that your sins and iniquities are totally forgotten. Don’t let the devil hold you in any form of guilt. I have echoed it time and time again in this devotional but it bears repetition: God has forgiven your past, present, and future sin. When Jesus died, He paid the full price, and as a result you have the liberty to ask anything and achieve anything.
If God remembers your sins no more, has He lowered His standards? No, God is holy and just. At the cross 2000 years ago He remembered all of our sins-past, present, and future. He fully punished every sin on the body of Jesus Christ on the cross. He poured out His full wrath on Him for all of our sins. That is why He does not remember them anymore.
Notice the words “no more” in our text. He will by no means ever remember our sins; away with the consciousness of sin in your life. When you fall into sin, look to the cross where sin was punished and thank God for the blood that is still efficacious for you. The once-and-for-all sacrifice of Jesus is enough for all of our sins. He has perfected us. Rejoice because God is not mad at you. He says He will be merciful, and your sins and your lawless deeds He will remember no more.
