Day 10

Forgive and Forget
When God forgives our sins, he both forgives and forgets.
What this means is that God, from the moment he has forgiven us, treats us for all intents and purposes as if we had never ever wronged him. He restores us completely to the standing we had with him before we fell. Love keeps no record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:5).
However, it is not possible for us to “forgive and forget” in the same way that God does. It can take us a long time to heal from the wounds that others have inflicted on us.
What we can do is to “forgive and forget” in the sense of taking the decision that you will choose to forgive the person who has wronged you for the sake of Jesus Christ and move on with your life.
You know that you still need to heal. But once you come to the place where you decide to forgive someone from your heart, something very special happens. God heals your wounds.
As your own wounded heart is healed, you will more and more see the other person as God sees them, treating them as if they had never sinned against you. We must never let a root of bitterness spring up in our hearts (Hebrews 12:15).
It’s time to forgive. It’s time to give up bitterness. Allow the Spirit of God to reveal to you someone whom you need to forgive. Ask God for strength to forgive. The do what Jesus tells you to do.
