God forgives

In sharing on Isaiah 38 today, I loved the image that Isaiah presents to his hearers of a God who puts our sins behind his back. This conjures up the picture of a gracious God engaging with me, consciously holding his hands behind his back. God does this, so our sins can't come between us and him any longer.

  • “You have put my sins behind your back!” – Isaiah 38:17

As God loves me, so He wins me over to his side - he does this by offering me the gift of forgiveness. As Frederick Robertson says, “We win by tenderness. We conquer by forgiveness.”

May God's love win you over today.
Why not share a little of this with others.

Living in Grace
