Micah 7:19: He will turn again; he will have compassion on us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Meditation: I’m not much of a fisherman but I know a few who can spend the whole day out on the water just waiting for that 3 lb. bass to take a strike at his bait so he can reel him in and then spend the rest of the week telling all his friends how he pulled in that 4 pounder! One thing I know not to do, if there’s a sign that says “no fishing” then I’d better leave. Oftentimes we’re just like that angler that spends the whole day trying to catch those sins that we’ve been forgiven of, reminiscing over them or perhaps sorrowing over them all the while not noticing the sign that God posted that says, “no fishing” as He’s buried those vilest sins in the depths of the sea, to remain there for eternity!

Prayer: Lord, would You gently remind me that those sins that I’ve been forgiven of have been cast into the deepest part of the sea, that You have forgotten them and that should as well! Amen.
