Forgive and Don't Forget

Woman: Okay. So we’re supposed to forgive and forget, right? Well, there’s no way I can ever forget what she did to me! So, I’m not going to forgive her, either.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Did you know that God doesn’t forget our sins? You say, “Yes, He does.” How could an omniscient God forget anything? In the book of Jeremiah, God says, “I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” God doesn’t promise to forget our sins, but He does promise that He will never hold them against us again. That’s what He calls us to do.

He doesn’t ask us to forget the wrongs done to us, but to simply forgive. Then we can remember the situation with a greater sense of rest. We can focus on how much God has forgiven us.

Is there a painful situation in your life? It may not be possible to forget about it, but you can choose to forgive.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
