Do you think the GOD you love, serve and ask for forgiveness would possibly reveal your secrets to others so they would blast them over the airwaves?
If the LORD forgives and the WORD says HE does, if we ask HIM do you think HE would bring up things that are forgiven. If GOD chooses to forget, so should we. As far as the east is from the west HE remembers our transgressions no more.
If there are other people bringing up things that are forgiven or think they have “discernment” on you, remind the devil that he is the accuser of the brethren and that no one has power or rights over you to do anything! Remember our battle is not with flesh and blood!
“For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), Being in readiness to punish every [insubordinate for his] disobedience, when your own submission and obedience [as a church] are fully secured and complete,” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 Amplified Bible.
The LORD who knows us better than we know ourselves chooses to forgive us when we ask and HE forgets it! PERIOD!
People remember our sin, mistakes and failures but GOD chooses to forget. HE cannot see it and there is no remembrance! I praise the LORD that HE knows me and especially my heart. Aren’t you glad HE knows you?
Failure makes your future. Failure is not an ending; it is a new beginning! Failure is stepping stones to greater victory! JESUS himself learned obedience by what HE suffered and he didn’t commit sin. We all fail in many ways but GOD takes all the mess and makes it a message in us.
We are living epistles seen and read of all men. Our failures and problems have given us experience, and with that experience, hope and hope does not make us ashamed. We all must learn to give no place to condemnation, guilt and discouragement.
If we have repented HE remembers it NO more and now we get up dust ourselves off and press forward toward the mark of the high calling in Christ! Forgive those people who accuse you and be still and know He is GOD. Kill them with kindness! Overcome evil with good, AMEN?
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
