So often Satan whispers lies like:
“God couldn’t possibly forgive you for doing that!” or
“God couldn’t possibly have use for you now that you have done [insert your sin here]!” or
“How many times do you think He is willing to forgive [insert repeated offense here]?”
Maybe you have heard those same lies or maybe you’ve heard others. There are days when I get in a rut and I forget that I’m forgiven. That might sound crazy but it can happen after a tough day or a restless night.
How do you recall the promises of God’s forgiveness and restoration?
- Attending church where forgiveness is proclaimed following the confession of sins
- Witnessing a Baptism
- Washing dishes
- Washing clothes
- Washing hands
Within the daily routine of our lives, we are always washing something. Take a moment to connect the wordly cleanliness you have set out to achieve and remember your Baptism! Let Him refresh and restore you with a reminder of His Grace! God wants you to remember His forgiveness and Satan would love for you to forget it. Don’t give Satan the edge!
1 Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin. Psalm 51:1-2 (read the whole Psalm!)
Thankful for His cleaning (though I don’t always like the scrubbing!!)
