Pictures Painted By God

"You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea." Micah 7:19 (NASB)

Having another bad day, my life before I got right with the Lord brought waves of sorrow.

I was having a hard time forgiving myself for a youthful life that was a prodigal life. It was often harder for me to forgive myself than to believe the Lord had forgiven me. I bowed my head and asked for help. Only the Spirit of God can teach a troubled soul in times like I was experiencing. Three verses came to my heart:

"For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation. But the sorrow of the world produces death." II Corinthians 7:10

"You will cast all their sins into the depth of the sea." Micah 7:19

"I have wiped your transgressions like a thick cloud, and your sins like a heavy mist." Isaiah 44:22

My soul relaxed understanding it was alright if I had residual sorrow about my prodigal days that blew in like a dark mist sometimes because, I now had an honest, repentant heart.

Let God paint living pictures of forgiveness in your soul with the brush strokes found in the Word of God.

Thank You, Lord, You are the master painter, paint my heart with the pictures You want to live there. In Your name, Amen.
