Remember . . . But Do Not Remember.

#MeditationMonday‬ – Out of the abundance of a man’s heart, his mouth speaks.

Welcome, dearly beloved. I pray the mercies of God over you throughout this week. I hope to encourage and build you up in the Lord. Today’s passage is Psalm 25:6-7. I pray you gain a deeper understanding of these verses. As you grow in knowledge may you be empowered to share your convictions with those around you.

Remember, O Lord, Your [tender] compassion and Your lovingkindnesses, for they have been from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions. According to Your lovingkindness remember me, for Your goodness’ sake, O Lord.

— Psalm 25:6-7 [AMP]

I urge you to think deeply about this passage and as you meditate on these verses, ask yourself these questions and answer them sincerely:

What do you wish the Lord would remember about you/your life today?

Is there something in your life or past you earnestly wish He would not remember?

Can you thank Him for the things you hope He remembers and the things you want Him to forget?

When things seem weird or are just not going according to previous plans, look to these verses as a source of comfort. Remember, God’s compassion and lovingkindness have been since the beginnng of time itself (they are of old) and you can call upon His love to rescue you from any situation!

Secondly, no matter how old we get, we must never stumble in asking the Lord to forget our sins, because we make mistakes daily and continually fall short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23).

Our youthful faults and follies (i.e. foolishness) should be the matter of our repentance and humiliation even long after, because time does not wear out the guilt of sin.

— Matthew Henry’s Commentary

Only Jesus can remove the heavy weight of guilt (from sins) from our shoulders. Ask Him today to remember you for His goodnes sake, to forget the foolishness of your youth and to remove the weight of guilt on your shoulders.

Prayer: Dear Lord, please remember your mercy, which speaks for me, and forget my sins, which speak against me. Kindly bring to your remembrance, all the things which speak for me, and do not remember anything that speaks against me. In Jesus name, Amen.
