Psalm 103:11-18
11 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
12 He has removed our rebellious acts as far away from us as the east is from the west.
13 The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
14 For he understands how weak we are; he knows we are only dust.
15 Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
16 The wind blows, and we are gone as though we had never been here.
17 But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children
18 of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments!
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

East and west can never meet. This is a symbolic portrait of God’s forgiveness. When He forgives our sin, He separates it from us and doesn’t even remember it. We need never wallow in the past for God forgives and forgets. Do not let Satan dredge up your past by bringing old sin to your mind because it will prevent you from moving forward in your relationship with God. He doesn’t remember sin that has been forgiven and is under the blood of Jesus. You will never forget, but your mind is not the mind of God. And God has wiped the record clean. We are as clean as the driven snow and as righteous as Jesus Christ is righteous. Even though we cannot understand this, it is true. Don’t allow old sin to parade through your mind; it will only make you feel bad.  Satan would have you stay in the memory of your past failures to keep you ineffective for God. So live and act like the forgiven child of God that you are! Then move forward to do the work God have given you with the mind of Christ.

Have a God Day!
