Because of His love…

“Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD” (Psalm 25:7).

If any good comes my way, if any blessings shower down upon me, it is because of God’s love and His goodness, not because of anything good that I’ve done. I was reading today’s Psalm, and verse 7 spoke to me. I pray the Lord will remember me based on His love, not based on my deeds. Through Christ we are vindicated, shameless, our name is clear and upright. Not because I deserve it, but because of His love. Often Caleb escapes great wrath from me because of my love for him, not because he never does anything wrong. As much as I talk about him and refer to him in my writings, I still understand that Caleb makes mistakes and doesn’t always use the best of wisdom. However, I love him and because of that love, he is recipient of my goodness.

Read Psalm 25 and allow His Word to free you from guilt and shame. He doesn’t remember our transgressions – because of His love and goodness, not because of our goodness.
