“He will again have compassion on us, And will subdue our iniquities. You will cast all our sins Into the depths of the sea.” (Micah 7:19 NKJV)
Because of God’s mercy towards us–He will not stay angry with us forever, and when we repent of our sins, His mercy and compassion are so great that He forgives us and tosses our sins into the depths of the seas.
The key to having our sins tossed into the sea is our repentance–turning away from those things that do not honor God in any way and turning to God, honoring Him in all we do.
Many–who want to live any way they want to live–espouse God’s love and criticize anyone else who mentions sin, saying we should only talk about love. Well, God is love and He loves us all, but He will not tolerate disobedience any more than our natural parents will. The rules don’t change because of His love, but the rules are established because of His love.
Be careful of the tricks of the enemy who would blind to truth and attempt to get one to believe that God’s Love cancels His rules, when in fact, it is just the opposite. When we love–we want to keep our loved ones safe from harm. God’s Love wants to keep us safe from harm and keep us in position to receive His many benefits. If we love Him, we’ll obey Him. When we refuse to obey Him, we are in fact obeying Satan who wants confusion and disorder and chaos to reign so we cannot hear God when He speaks.
I am so grateful for God’s forgiveness and His giving me a another chance to get things right with Him, that I know my sins are at the bottom of the ocean and no one–doing any deep-sea fishing, will be able to snare them and bring them up to Him again. Hallelujah!
