You Are Forgiven

[Saturday, August 30]

“Know that when you have brought your sins to Me and confessed them, they are gone. I do not remember them, says God, and I will not deal with you after them, so I call you to forget them this day.”



Prophetic Scripture:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Although many Christians know for a fact that they have forgiveness through the blood of Jesus, they still think somehow that God will only bless them once they get certain sin habits or shortcomings dealt with. Of course, we need to eliminate sin and bad habits from our lives. First, because our lifestyle needs to reflect the freedom in Christ we have been freely given, we avoid sin because we love God and His ways. Second, sowing constant sinful behavior results in reaping the harvest sin brings. Simply said, wrongdoing has bad results.

However, God isn’t determining whether or not to bless you according to your ability to do the right thing all the time. He knows you cannot. He forgives us because of the blood of Jesus. It’s not based on how good we can be; it’s based on the blood of Jesus. God does not want us to conceal wrongdoing from Him, and He wants us to live a repentant lifestyle that is open and honest before Him. He allows us to freely bring to Him our wrongdoing and lay it at the cross where we are cleansed from all unrighteousness. So forget your sins; God does, and you are forgiven today!


Prayer:

Lord, I thank You that I have total forgiveness by the blood of Jesus. I am washed pure of all sin, and because You have forgotten my sins I choose to forget them too and know that You will bless me. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
