You know what’s embarrassing? Slamming the toilet lid down in a public restroom because you forget that all toilet lids are not self closing like the ones at home.
You know what’s painful? Forgetting that you chopped jalapeños a few hours ago and rubbing your eye.
You know what is not embarrassing or painful? God’s forgiveness. The teaching of Scripture is that when we confess our sin He is faithful and just to forgive us. Not just forgive either but to cleanse us from the dirt and mess of our sin. And if that were not enough, we are told He throws our sin away as far as the east is from the west.
You know what God doesn’t forget?
He remembers our frame. He remembers that we are His people and He is our God.
He remembers His promises.
So many promises! But this morning I woke up thinking about forgiveness and Psalm 139. Such thoughts are, indeed, too wonderful.
You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is high; I cannot attain it. (Verses 5 & 6)
I hope you begin your week thinking of the promises God gives to His children. And may you walk in them.
Happy Monday y’all.
