The Sea of Forgetfulness

Unfortunately many people today are living a life of "Condemnation". They feel as if God can't use them or will not bless them because of sins they have commited in their past.
Did you know that when you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your sins became covered by the Blood of Jesus? What does that mean? It means when God looks at you, he doesn't see your sin, he sees the "Blood of Jesus" and your sin debt is satisfied.

God has forgiven you for your sins, as a matter of fact, he doesn't even remember them! The Bible says in Micah 7:18-19, Who [is] a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth [in] mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Then in Heb. 8:12 he says "For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more " God has forgotten your sins.

Why do you constantly keep reminding him and yourself of your past? He's put it out of his memory and he wants you to do the same! Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. (Isa.43:18)

If your past keeps coming before you, it's not God condemning you, it's satan controlling you. You're letting him control your thoughts. You must bring every thought into captivity unto the obedience of Christ. (2Cor.10:5). For the word states in Romans 8:1 "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

You are free from sin!

Stop Asking God to Forgive; What He's Already Chosen to Forget!

Be Blessed Today!

How To Walk Thru Fire & Not Get Burned

Today as I was listening to a live Worship Broadcast on line. I started to think about how "Faithful" God has been to me over the years. He's brought me out of so many situations, many of which I thought would break me, but now some are just a distant memory.

Have you ever been in a situation that looked like it would consume you? I mean you really thought, "This is it;" "I don't know how I'm going to get out of this?" Life's challenges can sometimes bring us to the "Brink of Despair", but when you put your Faith in God, no matter what the situation, you trust him to bring you through.

There were 3 young men in the bible who were in a situation that looked hopeless. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were being put in a "Fiery Furnace" I mean a real Furnace Yall. The Furnace was so hot that it burned up the men that were throwing them into the fire. (Dan. 3:22). These young men were tied up and left in the fire to burn.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego did not know how or if they would get out of what they were in, but they trusted God with their situation. Three men were placed in the fire, but when thier Adversary looked in the furnace he saw four men. When we put our trust in God, he gets involved with our problems. The fourth man was "The Holy Ghost" The Holy Ghost enabled these men to walk through the fire and not get burned, & there was no smell of smoke on their clothes. In other words, unless you saw them get put in a furnace, you would never have believed they had been in a fire!

Whatever you're dealing with today; whatever the situation you are facing; Trust God, and allow him to get involved. He will cause the thing that put you into the fire, to call you out. "Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, [and] spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come [hither]. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire." (Dan. 3:26)

**Father - I trust you with every situation that I may find myself in today. I have faith that no matter what I'm facing. You have the power to walk me through it.**
