Where is the god who can compare with you— wiping the slate clean of guilt, Turning a blind eye, a deaf ear, to the past sins of your purged and precious people? You don’t nurse your anger and don’t stay angry long, for mercy is your specialty. That’s what you love most”. Micah 7:18-20 (MSG)
What freedom and joy to serve a God Whose specialty is mercy! Loving us so much and proving it too, by giving us “do-over’s” every moment of every day. Did you mess up just a minute ago? Mercy will meet you there. Feel guilty over something you should or shouldn’t have done, days or even years ago? Mercy has long since washed it away and remembers it no more.
Now it’s your turn to pick up the brush and wipe it clean, sins past that belongs to you and everyone else’s too! Mercy makes all the difference in the world—transforming your world and making all things new.
Oh, wonderful one, white as snow. Look how you glisten and glow!!
Jesus, I thank You today that because of You and all You have done for me personally, and the whole world, all of our sins can be washed away.
Forgive me for the ways I have sinned, first of all. Against You, others, and myself. Forgive me for the ways I have held on to the guilt and shame for my own sins, and the anger and unforgiveness when others have sinned against me.
Help me to let go of all that You have already forgiven, and forgotten, and like You, to remember it no more.
I am free today, Jesus, because You have made me so. I choose to walk in that freedom today, and yes, for my whole life to glisten and glow!
In Your Holy Name I pray.
