Hebrews 10:16-17 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”
It is the subtle things that launch a memory; that causes the reliving of an event in our lives. The devil is masterful at throwing stuff at us those trigger memories; thoughts that handcuff us; that stop us dead in our tracks.
Most often, he uses our failures to remind us over and over again how unworthy we are of God’s love and attention. He draws us into applying human conditions to divine promises.
God’s love for us is eternal and unconditional. He set that love upon us from the foundation of the world when He created the plan to redeem man.
Jeremiah 31:3 “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
When we begin to hear the accusations of our enemy, we have a choice to make. I can either believe what he is saying as truth and come under the weight of sin and guilt; or, realize who I am in Christ.
Positionally, God sees me as righteous, as being already in Heaven with Him.
Ephesians 2:5-6 “Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:”
Placing my faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross means that I now have been made a child of God. Not by my power, actions, will, or inheritance; but by faith in the One who has the ability to transform me and make my spirit come alive, that was dead in trespass and sin.
John 1:12-13 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
The forgiveness I received through salvation has given me precious promises from my Heavenly Father.
My sins, which are now all forgiven, have some beautiful things God tells me, are mine.
They are removed from me.
Psalm 103:12 “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”
God placed them where I can’t reach them.
Isaiah 38:17 “Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.”
Micah 7:19 “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”
But probably the most precious of the promises God has given to us is that out of the depths of His great love, He chooses to remember our sins and iniquities no more!
Hebrews 10:17 “…And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.”
You and I are susceptible to Satan’s attack through the remembrance of our sin. We need to understand that these truths are in force every moment of every day unto eternity.
So, when Satan tries to come and remind me of the things I’ve done, I tell him of his eternal destiny – which I will never taste! Though he cannot get me into Hell, he will try to make my life here a hell on earth.
Rejoice, child of God; all sin is forgiven, as far as the east is from the west, in the depths of the sea, behind God’s back (which, even if He turns around, they are still behind His back!), and remembered no more!
Live, child of God, victoriously as He gave us every opportunity to do so!
