Most of us have regrets of the things we have done or said and some of them are shameful, while others remain painful in our memories. Being Human means we are not perfect and we do make mistakes, and some of those mistakes are bad enough to weigh heavily on our hearts and minds for years. But God in His Word reminds us that if we are fully repentant we are FORGIVEN, FOREVER.
Our verse for the day reminds us that we believe in the God of Forgiveness. No matter how bad we have been or how wickedly we have sinned, God is still willing to be merciful and allow us the opportunity to put the past behind us and begin our journey again with our focus on doing God’s Will in all things. He also promises to never bring up ever again those sins and mistakes that we regret and have confessed to Him.
That’s why we must always apply Spiritual C.P.R. and this will bring full Forgiveness from the Lord.
C – CONFESS – James 5:16 “Therefore confess your faults to another and pray for one another ……..”
P – PRAY – “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by PRAYER and supplication with thanksgiving be made known to God”
R – REPENT – Acts 3: 19 “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord”.
Applying Spiritual C.P.R guarantees us *FORGIVENESS FOREVER*
God does this for us because His Son Jesus paid the price for our sins. This is what it means to be redeemed; this is what happens when we are saved. So today, receive and embrace this blessing. God knows all our regrets; He forgives all our mistakes, and He promises to let go of every one of them FOREVER.
My Prayer this morning: Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for taking upon Yourself the punishment of the cross for our sins. Your sacrifice allows us to be saved. Your Resurrection guarantees us to be fully redeemed. Thank You for such a wonderful gift and everlasting blessing that made it possible for us as your children to be FORGIVEN FOREVER, we Love you Lord.
In the Love of the Lord Jesus,
John and Barbara
