I am not defined by my mistakes.
Tenth Avenue North - You Are More
3 LORD, if You kept a record of our sins, who, O Lord, could ever survive? 4 But You offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear You. 5 I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on Him. I have put my hope in His word.
6 I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn, yes, more than sentries long for the dawn. 7 O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is unfailing love. His redemption overflows. He Himself will redeem Israel from every kind of sin.
Often it is when we get to the lowest point possible that we realize that we have only one choice and we finally call on God. Maybe we are too full of pride and are unwilling to seek God's help until we are at the very end of our options. Maybe we are too ashamed and need to be reminded that God isn't keeping score, our ledger book is full of everything that we ever did wrong, God's ledger is full of forgiveness.
We are freed from our past.
|Titus 2:14 He gave His life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us His very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.|
Redeem - Verb /riˈdēm/ To compensate for the faults or bad aspects of something.
It is so awesome to know that all of those things have been forgotten and now I am a child of God that has been cleansed and I can live in victory over my past.
