A forgetful God (February 21, 2013)

Isaiah 43:25 I–yes, I alone–will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again.

God is great. God is good.  Thus begins a children’s blessing that teaches children about gratitude for God’s daily provision of “bread”.  There are many things God does daily for which we should be grateful.  In Isaiah 43:25, we are told that God alone has the power (and willingness) to blot out our sins and forget them (as if they had never happened).  Our part is to acknowledge that we have sinned, repent and ask for forgiveness and, finally, to accept that forgiveness and move on.

Another thing we must do is never bring it up again because God has already forgotten.  I wish it was as easy for us.  Wouldn’t the world be a better place if human beings could forgive and forget, putting aside the wrongs done to us so that we could live our lives in peace.  Unfortunately, the consequences of sin make it difficult for us sometimes to live in peace and harmony with others.

Father God,
You are great and good.  Thank You for Your daily provision of food, faithfulness and forgiveness.  Help me to be more forgiving and forgetful of wrongs done to me.  Amen.
