Our Amazing God
by Judy Doyle 4/25/2009 / Devotionals
I continue to be amazed by the miracles of God. I have a terrible memory. Yet, as I prepared a sermon, a chorus I learned years ago suddenly surfaced from the depths of the deteriorating gray matter. Below is that chorus:
"No more, No more, He remembers sins no more
They are pardoned for ever, And he will never
Bring them up against me any more.
I'll hear no more
Of the evil days of yore;
I'm a pardoned offender,
And God will remember them no more."
It also made me think of the psalmist words in Psalm 103:12
"As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
I also found that curious. Why didn't the psalmist say, as far as the north is from the south. Then I sat down looking (mentally) at a globe. As I began at the north pole going south, when I arrived as the south pole, I was suddenly going north. But no matter when I started going east, I was always going east.
Isn't God amazing! Isn't it amazing how God inspired the psalmist with just the right words!
This is nothing profound. Simply some thoughts to share.
