“A GOD LIKE YOU”
“Who [is] a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and
passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he
retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth [in] mercy.
He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will
subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the
depths of the sea.” (Micah 7:18-19 NIV)
This is such a Beautiful Scripture. When God forgives, He does not
do so partially. He totally forgives you. Everything that you have
ever done wrong, everything that could ever make you feel guilty,
every accusation that the enemy could ever bring against you, God
has taken away into the sea of forgetfulness. A preacher once said
that when God casts your sins into the sea, He puts up a sign that
says, “NO FISHING”.
Don’t try to fish something that has been buried. If God has forgiven
you, you are forgiven. There are no questions to be asked. God’s
forgiveness is total and complete. In Isaiah God speaks to His
people saying: “I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out thy transgressions for
mine own sake, and will not remember thy sin.” (Isaiah 43:25)
When God forgives you He blots out the record. You have a clean
slate. It is just as though that which was forgiven had never taken
place. Not only does He blot out the record, but He blots it out from
His own memory. He says that He will remember our sins no more.
When God forgives, He forgets. Your past has been forgotten.

forgiveness for me is total, my record has been blotted and is now clean,
