"Promise" - 08/23/14 - Jeremiah 49-50

"God's Decree - "they'll look high and low for a sign of Israel's guilt - nothing; Search nook and cranny for a trace of Judah's sin - nothing." (50:20)

I love this promise. This promise for me. For you. Because when we are "in" Christ, sins - all of them - past, present, future - are forgiven.

satan wants nothing more than for us to believe otherwise. he, or others, continually throw up into our face the sins we have committed. It's our choice in what to do with this attack. We can pick up the sins and envelop ourselves with the darkness, ugliness, unwanted.

Or we can stand in and on His Promise.

Instead of wallowing in shame and regret, we can look at our past sins as a milestone. A milestone of where our ABBA has brought us from. A milestone He used for His Glory. A milestone of when He came in and shone His Light, removing all our guilt through The Blood of our Savior.

A milestone where He was showing just how much He loves us.
