DIG for Wednesday the 14th of September…..if God does not remember your sin why do you…..Hebrews 10 v 17

I have been teaching on reconciliation and forgiveness at church recently and a verse that keeps ‘cropping up’ is Hebrews 10 v 17.

This verse is a promise for those who live under grace, who live under the New Covenant.

The good news is that we live under grace; we live under the new Covenant (Romans 6 v 14).

This verse is written in the context of what Jesus did as our sacrificial lamb.

He died once for all sin forever (Hebrews 10 v 12 and 14).

He dealt with sin once and for all as He shed His blood on the cross.

As sin was dealt with forgiveness flowed and God decided to put in place Hebrews 10 v 17.

God is not a forgetful God; He chose not to remember our sin because of the sacrifice of Jesus.

So let me ask you thins question; if God has chosen not to remember our sin should we?

Are we to still feel guilty about what we have done wrong, are doing wrong or are going to do wrong?

The answer is no, because Jesus has dealt with all your sin (past, present and future) and you now live in a state of forgiveness.

What you should be doing instead is thanking God that you have been forgiven.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I have been forgiven and thank you that you remember my sin no more”.

Hebrews 10 v 17…..And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more


DIG for Tuesday the 13th of September…..more great advice from proverbs…..Proverbs 20 to 22

Proverbs is a book I return to again and again looking for ‘little nuggets’ of truth.

My attention was brought to Proverbs 4 v 20 to 22 today with regards to a fellow believer’s search for physical healing.

We are told to give attention to His words; that means to take an interest in and be involved in studying the Word of God.

We are told to incline our ears; that means to actively listen, I see it as reaching out and being eager to listen and be taught.

We are told not to let them depart from our eyes; that means to keep looking at the Word.

We are told to keep them in the midst of our heart; this means to love and cherish the Word of God and keep focusing on it.

So what happens if we do this?

Well, the Word says this will bring us life and health (Proverbs 4 v 22).

And indeed this is what happened to the believer who was searching for healing.

He paid attention to the Word of God, actively listened to the Lord, kept reading these words and loving what he was reading.

This believer then saw full healing.

And the same can be true for us.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that it is life and healing to all my flesh”.

Proverbs 4 v 20 to 22…..My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh

DIG for Monday the 12th of September…..change your attitude, choices and priorities…..Romans 12 v 2

I was reading a section of a Derek Prince book this afternoon and it made me think about the results of mind renewal.

I often write about renewing the mind, after all it is the way to lasting and permanent change in the life of a believer.

This ties in with what I’ve been learning from another teacher recently that mind renewal is more than just understanding the Word of God.

That is where the process starts; we need to renew our mind through God’s Word, as that is where we find truth after all.

So mind renewal is more than gaining knowledge and understanding, although this has to happen for the process to reach its conclusion.

With knowledge and with understanding there must come a change in thinking, there needs to be an improvement in attitude and the way we think.

Mind renewal brings a change in priorities and it brings a change in values.

For mind renewal to take place there must be a practical use of knowledge, we must ‘do something’ with that knowledge.

Mind renewal includes putting into place and ‘practicing what we preach’.

Those around us should see the evidence of our mind renewal.

They should see us behaving differently, with renewed priorities and improved choices.

It does however all start with getting into the Word and gaining knowledge.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for your Word and thank you that I can be transformed through the renewing of my mind”.

Romans 12 v 2……And be ye not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God
