Thank God For Amnesia!

Posted on Updated on

Psalm 25:7

2015 Frieda P. Smith

Even though we have managed to keep our skeletons in the closet, our faces off the front page of the newspaper, clean up our credit and/or criminal histories, or even acquire new identities, God knows who we were and everything we have done.

In Romans 3:23, the Apostle Paul wrote these word, “For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”  Since we have all sinned (that’s right—you too!), if there is one person we hope has amnesia, it is God.

Amnesia is the loss of or a gap in one’s memory; the inability to recall events that took place in the past.

As we know, God created this world from the beginning (Genesis 1:1). God is everywhere, sees everything, and knows everything (Psalm 139:712).

Hence, we may have been successful in putting up a good front and hiding our past from our family, friends, co-workers, and church members, but there is one Person Who we cannot fool:  God.  He knows the real deal.  .

In Psalm 25:7, King David wrote these words, “Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to your mercy remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O Lord”.

You see, like you and I, King David messed up.  He had a sketchy past.  King David made some mistakes.  He made poor decisions.  King David loved God, but David’s past was horrible.

Nevertheless, God still used David, because God chose not to remember David’s sins.

Thank God for amnesia!

My friends, when Jesus Christ sacrificed His life at Calvary, His blood atoned for our sins once and for all. As result, those of us who accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior have been reconciled with God.  Hence, when God declared through the pen of the writer of Hebrews 8:12, “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more”, God was referring to us! .

Yes, we have sinned, but God chooses not to remember them!

I cannot speak for you and your past, but as for me and mine,

Thank God for amnesia!
