I don’t Remember (Learning to Forgive Myself)

“I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” Isaiah 43:25 King James Version

A couple of months ago, I received a letter through the mail. The person who wrote the letter told me “I have learned to forgive others but it’s very hard to forgive myself.” I understand how this person feels because it took me years to learn that if I don’t forgive myself then I still have unforgiveness in my heart.

One day, God spoke to my heart and said “I have forgiven you and you must forgive yourself.” Not only are we disobeying God when we refuse to forgive ourselves, we are also saying that we don’t really believe He has forgiven us. He not only tells us that He forgives us when we sin; He also promises us that He will not remember our sins.

It is time that we forgive ourselves and forget about our past sins and mistakes. Don’t let satan lie to you and tell you that God hasn’t forgiven you. That is a lie straight from the pits of hell. If you have confessed your sins, He has forgiven you. However, just because we know that He is faithful to forgive us does not give us permission to sin knowing that we will be forgiven.

Heavenly Father, thank You for being a loving, compassionate and forgiving Father. Thank You for Your promise that You will not remember our sins. Help us to walk in the forgiveness that Jesus gave us when He died for our sins. May our thoughts, our words and our actions be pleasing to You. Amen.
