Morning Prayer, Friday, February 23, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: HE WON’T REMEMBER
Father God, I am ever grateful that You are a merciful and just God who forgives sins even when we are not deserving. Than You. Amen.
Psalm 25:7 and Micah 7:18-19
"What screws us up most in life is the picture in our head of how it's supposed to be." Have you ever thought about what your life would be like if God remembered all of your past sins? Every time you prayed and asked him for something, He reminded you of what you did as a child, what you did as a teenager, what you did in your 20's, 30's, 40's and so on. You couldn't get a prayer through any kind of way. Aren't you just glad He is a merciful and just God? The Bible says He casts our sins into the sea of forgetfulness never to be seen or heard of again. I don't know about anybody else, but I am glad about it. Don't you wish the people who know and love you could show you that same kind of mercy? Yeah, I know some of us have led some rough lives. We have done some things we are ashamed of but we serve a God who believes strongly in second chances. He not only forgives what you have done, He forgets it and when we come to him with a repentant heart (Lord, I did this . . . and I'm sorry), the Bible says He is merciful and just to forgive us and cleanse of all wrongdoing. The thing about God is He does not sin. There will never be a reason for us to say, "Lord, I forgive you." Why, because He is perfect in every way. We are called to be like Him and not the other way around. Okay, so we have lived long enough to know that some days it is hard to live holy. The devil knows your shortcomings. He knows your weaknesses and yes, he will use them against you. What we have to be is strong. We have to choose to walk holy. We have to choose to in spite of what we feel or think to do the right thing. Hard or not, it is what God expects of us. He never falls short on His side. Sad to say, we fall short constantly. Lord, I'm sorry. Forgive me. In this year, I promise to do better.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
