“Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.” Micah 7:18-20
This verse came to mind today when I looked at the mighty waves pounding the shore. God, in His mercy, did not say He threw our sins into the sea where they could resurface. If that were the case, just like these waves we would be pounded over and over by our sin. But God in His mercy, hurled (that would be thrown with great force), into the depths of the sea. There they would be lost and remembered no more! Do you let your former actions haunt you, taunt you or bind you? Do you know that you are free and the sins are gone forever? God does not want us floundering on the shore struggling to survive under the weight of sin and its effects. He wants us living victoriously in the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of salvery.” Galatians 5:1 Live a life of freedom through Christ, fully forgiven and whole in Him.
Living forgiven and free,
