Permanently Deleted


When you confess you sins to the Lord, they are permanently deleted. You can not retrieve them if you try.

As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us (Psalm 103:12).

Sometimes, as I work on my computer, the promise of Psalm 103:12 comes to mind when there are files or folders I want to throw away. In order to discard them, I have to drag them to the trash can on my screen. Then I hit the delete button. A little window pops up and asks if I’m sure I want to delete the trash, and when I affirm that I do by hitting the button a second time, the trash disappears. Totally. Permanently. I can’t retrieve it, even if I try.

When you and I confess our sin and come to the cross, we are cleansed with the blood of Jesus. It’s as though God drags our sin to the heavenly trash can, hits the delete button, and it’s gone! As far as the east is from the west, it’s been removed. And if you think about it, the east is as far removed from the west as it’s possible to be, since the two will never meet!

When I come to God humbly, through faith in Jesus, He erases my sin from His memory much more effectively than I erase things from my computer. My sin is permanently deleted.
