Dad’s Blessing July 17, 2007

I bless you with a God who forgets.

“Bless the LORD,…who forgives all your iniquities.”

Psalm 103:1-2 NKJV

God doesn’t remember the past. But I do, you do. You still remember. You’re like me. You still remember what you did before you changed. In the cellar of your heart lurk the ghosts of yesterday’s sins. Sins you’ve confessed; errors of which you’ve repented; damage you’ve done your best to repair…

That horrid lie.

The time you exploded in anger.

Now, honestly. Do you think God was exaggerating when He said He would cast our sins as far as the east is from the west? Do you actually believe He would make a statement like “I will not hold their iniquities against them” and then rub our noses in them whenever we ask for help?

Of course you don’t. You and I just need an occasional reminder of God’s nature, Hi forgetful nature.
