Ezekiel 19:21-22 But if wicked people turn from all their sins and begin to obey my decrees and do what is right, they will surely live and not die. All their past sins will be forgotten, and they will live because of the righteous things they have done.
I love that God gives us another chance... that He is a God of mercy... In verse 32 God says, "I don't want you to die. Turn back and live." He even gives us His Word so that we can learn to live a righteous life. How special is that! He forgets all of our sins! When we are reminded of our sins it is not God, He does not remember! It is Satan trying to trip us up... because God loves us so much He forgets...and we can tell Satan that we know that!! We with boldness can say, "God has forgiven me, God loves me so much that He has even chose to forget my sins!" God wants us to grow in Him and He knows that we can't do that if we are living in the shadow of our past, so He forgets our past for us so that we can grow!! We can never be so bad that God will not forgive us if we ask and begin to do better. That is love! An amazing love.
