“Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O Lord.” (Ps. 25:6,7).
God will not only forgive us but also will absolutely forget whatever we might have done that is offensive to His Holiness. It is hard for us to comprehend that when God looks at us He is not remembering or contemplating our past mistakes and failures. He said: “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” (Ps. 103:12).
If your past failures are a distress to you and you are burdened by guilt you can be free today. God has given you the way of freedom. He said, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9). Confess, believe, and receive His forgiveness. Not only will He forgive you, but He will also cleanse you and wash away the effects and tarnish of sin upon your soul.
He uses His own blood as the cleansing agent: “Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father – to him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen.” (Rev. 1:
4 5). Be free from all guilt and shame as the Blood of Jesus Christ washes you today. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed.
I am cleansed by the Blood of Jesus Christ, forgiven and free from the burden of guilt.
