We were once falsely accused and viciously told,
" I forgive you, but I will never forget."
In His Word the LORD God says:
“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions
for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins."
Isaiah 43: 25
and again in the New testament:
“For I will be merciful to their iniquities,
And I will remember their sins no more.”
The LORD God can not forget, but He chooses to not remember.
What a beautiful example to follow.
In God's Word we are told to emulate His forgiveness
in that when we forgive people we may not be able to forget,
but we can intentionally choose to not remember;
that is, we are to never bring it up (even to ourselves),
and, most importantly, we do not hold it against them.
It is a choice. It is in the past, and not to be remembered.
Glory to God! His forgiveness is not vindictive.
He has no grudges on those who seek forgiveness.
He does not revel in our pain and sufferings.
He does not plan revenge on His children.
"I will remember their sins no more.”
