I was thanking the Father for His mercy. I began listing the sins He’d forgiven. “Remember the time I. . .” I was about to thank Him for another act of mercy. But then I stopped. Something was wrong. The word “remember” seemed displaced, off-key. It was like a baseball game in December… It didn’t fit. Does He remember?
Then I remembered His words in Isaiah 43:25, “I am He who blots out your transgressions, and I will not remember your sins.” Wow! That’s a remarkable promise. God doesn’t just forgive, he forgets. He destroys the evidence. He clears the hard drive. He doesn’t remember my mistakes.
He doesn’t remember! For all the things He does do, this is the one thing He refuses to do!
