How’s Your Memory?

I want you to see what God remembers and what He doesn’t remember. In Psalm 79:8, the psalmist asks God not to remember our iniquities. In Isaiah 43:25, God said, "I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake." Because of His name and what it means, God remembers our sins no more (Exodus 34:6-7; Hebrews 8:12; 10:17).

Do you want to be found remembering what God has forgotten? He cannot remember your sins. God’s omniscience is overtaken by His omnipotence, which limits His omnipresence as far as our sins are concerned. Jesus Christ was crucified with all of our sins upon Him. He died to pay for our sins. God’s sovereignty made an agreement to never remember one single sin.

The iniquity of Israel? "There shall be none." The sins of Judah "shall not be found." Why? They were placed upon Jesus Christ who would die at Calvary. Way back then, God declared the Finished Work. Israel and Judah were not under the Law but under the Finished Work. In their own heads, they might have thought they were under the Law, but it wasn’t God who put them there.

The greatest thing for our lives is to let the Finished Work really take over.
