Day 9

FORGIVENESS

"For I will forgive their wickedness

and will remember their sins no more."

Jeremiah 31:34

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, of course I know your past. Why do you wrestle with something that I so long ago forgave? My death paid for your wrong actions and attitudes. The "books" are now balanced. I no longer hold you accountable for what you did in the past. You are forgiven. Now let Me fill those clean pages with a future that I have designed especially for you. Hold your head up, but keep your heart bowed before Me. Together, let's press on to the prize for which I have called you.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, the past is gone, and I must leave it behind. Although I remember my sins well, You have thrown them into the sea of forgetfulness. You remember them no more; You refuse to hold me responsible for what You have forgiven. If You forgive me so completely, can I do any less?

SIMPLE TRUTH

God will never abandon a repentant heart.
