Do you actually believe God would make a statement like, “I will not hold their sins against them”—and then rub your nose in it whenever you ask for help?” Was He exaggerating when He said He would cast your sins as far as the east is from the west? (Psalm 103:12).
Are you really forgiven? Does He really forgive and forget? Yes, but you and I don’t. You still remember. That horrid lie. That jealousy. That habit. That business trip.
Do you think God is the voice that reminds you of your past? Was God teasing when He said, “I will remember your sins no more?” You and I just need an occasional reminder of God’s nature, His forgetful nature.
It’s against God’s nature to remember forgiven sins. He is the God of perfect grace. Grace forgets. Period.
