“LORD, if you kept a record of our sins, who, O Lord, could ever survive? But you offer forgiveness.”
Psalms 130:3-4 (NLT)
It is easy to keep a record of sins. How many times have we found ourselves caught up in bitterness over someone’s repeated offences against us? How many times should we continue to forgive? Jesus addressed that very question when Peter asked Him how many times we should forgive someone. Peter in a magnanimous gesture suggests seven times, but Jesus said seven times seventy was more like it. The truth is God’s love is greater than we can imagine. David was trying to make that point in this passage. He was amazed at the fact that God was totally justified in keeping record of all our wrongs but chooses not to. Instead, what does God do? He offers forgiveness. Forgiveness is a powerful healer. Is there something weighing heavy on your heart? Is there a secret sin or something from the past you need to repent of? Today, bring it to God. The God who does not keep a ledger of your wrongdoings but instead offers complete forgiveness.
Father, thank You for not keeping a record of my wrongs. Instead, I bring my sins to You and ask You to forgive me and set me free. In Jesus’ name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
God forgives all my wrongdoing
Picture God keeping track of all your wrongdoing. Feel the weight of all your guilt and shame. Sense the hopelessness, the despair as you stand before God. But then you see Jesus come. He offers His sacrifice for the ledger of your wrongdoing. The ledger is thrown away, gone forever. Joy fills your heart as you realize that you are forgiven and your sins forgotten. You praise God with a loud shout and affirm, “God forgives all my wrongdoing!”
