Are you constantly torturing yourself by digging up what God has laid to rest? The hardest person to forgive is ourselves. Those awful memories that run on a loop in your mind? Who do you think is pressing the play button?
Remember, our enemy’s M.O. is to steal, kill and destroy. But listen, to do that, he doesn’t have to stop your heart from beating…he just has to prevent it from believing. The word believe means to trust in and rely on. Are you relying on the truth of God’s forgiveness to transform your perception of reality?
Jesus took our sins to the grave with him, and that is where he left them. Every single one. When he rose from the dead on the third day, our wrongs didn’t go running after him down the road to Emmaus. Your sins weren’t tugging at his tunic saying, “Hey! Don’t forget us! Don’t forget us!” The point is, he did forget them.
Even Wonder Women have made mistakes, and we all will again. We are superheroes who are still human. Whatever you’ve done, whoever you’ve hurt, if you confessed and repented (turned away from) your sin, you are forgiven. God holds nothing against you.
