Daily Readings — Forgot the Save Key!

Day 2152: Continuing with just who our amazing God is using Psalm 103! Today’s verse is in bold.

Scripture: He does not punish us for all our sins; He does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.  For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him. He has removed our sins from us as far as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:10-12

Thoughts/questions: As our ability to gather information has soared in this computer age, some of the Bible’s analogies and descriptions were not able to utilize that knowledge and terminology.

For examples, in Psalm 139 we are told God knit us together in our Mother’s womb, meaning He put together our DNA. However, using DNA would have been incomprehensible to the peers of the author of the Psalm.

Likewise, we know the east is extremely far from the west, but maybe this analogy will help you personally identify with what God has done with each of our sins. Many of us have written material in a computer (when this happens it always seems to be a lot of writing) only to have a computer glitch happen or we forgot to hit the save key.

ALL the information is gone, NEVER to be retrieved again! Same with God – because He doesn’t hit the save key regarding our sins, they too are GONE! Also, never to be retrieved again! Removed forever! He won’t be using them against us or keeping score of our sin total!


Suggested prayer: Almighty God, I can’t totally comprehend Your amazing forgiveness. Thank You for remembering my sins no more . . .
