This morning I was listening to Pastor Lawson Purdue preaching on his program Grace For Today, one of our programs that play here on Rocky Mountain CTN each day at 9:30am, and he made a comment that just made sense and encouraged me at the same time.
He was teaching about Psalms 103:12 - "as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us"
He made a comment about the earth and travel considering north, south east and west. If you travel North around the earth you will eventually end up going South. But if you travel east or west you can travel that direction forever!
Then I looked at the verse previous in Psalms 103:11 that says, "For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;"
If we were to travel on a rocket and leave the earth’s atmosphere into space, we would just continue to float further and further away. The same is true with God and his GREAT love for us that just continues and goes on and on.
I have read these verses in Psalms since I was a kid in church and heard pastors talk about the love of God and the removal of our sins. But this is the first time I recognized the fact of how far the East is from the West and the removal of transgressions in my life. The only way we can catch up with our past is if we go pursue it with our actions.
Today, live in victory and realize just how far removed your sins, and the things you have done in your past, are to the new creation you become when you give God total control of your life!
