THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
GOD’S MERCY IS BIGGER THAN YOUR MISTAKE
The enemy knows that if we feel wrong on the inside, we’ll never become who we were created to be. He works overtime to try to bring guilt and shame on you, to make you feel as though you don’t deserve to be blessed. You have to turn off the accusing voices.
You may have made mistakes, but the moment you asked God to forgive you, He not only forgave you but He took it one step further and doesn’t even remember it anymore. Those condemning thoughts try to remind you of your past mistakes. You’ve already asked for forgiveness, which means that God doesn’t remember it. That voice is a sure sign the accuser is at work. You can either accept the shame and feel wrong on the inside or you can declare, “No, shame off me! I’ve been forgiven. I know God’s mercy is bigger than this mistake. If God doesn’t remember it, I’m not going to remember it either.”
Isaiah 43:25, NKJV
“I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.”
