THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Two little boys got into a fight.
But the next morning Johnny took his cap and headed for Bobby's house again.

Surprised, an older member of the family said teasingly, "What! Going to play with him again? I thought you had a fight last night and was never going to have anything more to do with him? Funny memory you have."

Johnny looked a little sheepish, dug his toe into the carpet for a moment, then flashed a satisfied smile as he hurried away.
"Oh! Bobby and me's good FORGETTERS!"

Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption:
for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back

I would like to forget all my sins.
However, they - like haunting nightmares - continually remind me of my guilt!
My "forgetter" is broken, and my "rememberer" works TOO WELL!!

And, all too often, I find myself repeating old sins.
This not only brings guilt, but - like a worm - burrows in and produces bitterness.

Tell me you, Christian, don't feel the same.

Do you sometimes feel like the psalmist?
Ps 73:26
“My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.”

There are two words in the Bible that bring such tremendous relief to the soul:
BUT GOD!

Isaiah said "BUT GOD," by His great love has DELIVERED my soul from corruption, and cast all my sins behind His back!!"

When the guilty pains of sin remind us;
when the "worm" of sin burrows in and produces bitterness;
REMEMBER --
1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Yes, we are sinners all;
BUT GOD has become our SAVIOR!

Love ya!
