This may sound really elementary, but it is a powerful truth. When we repent of our sins, God forgives them and will never remember or mention them again. Psalm 103:12 tells us that “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

You can’t get any farther than that! It is as far as you can imagine. When Jesus forgives our sins, He forgets them, period. God gives us a wonderful promise in Micah 7:19. He says He will…”tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”

This promise paints an awesome word picture. Our sins sink to the depths of the ocean, never to rise again. God not only casts our sins into the deepest sea, I believe He puts a sign there that says, “No Fishing!”

The Lord has forgotten our sins as if they have never been, and He wants us to forget them too. We are totally set free when Jesus forgives our sins. We can trust Him!
