Job 14:16-17 “You’ll watch over every step I take, but you won’t keep track of my missteps. My sins will be stuffed in a sack and thrown into the sea—sunk in deep ocean.”
God isn’t sitting at a computer terminal typing in all the horrible things I do. Instead, He watches over me – always, but only keeps track of my successes!
Even with all the modern technology and high-dollar equipment rescuers and treasurer hunters search in vain for things much larger than a bag that have been lost at sea – sometimes for hundreds of years. Can you imagine how impossible it would be to find a sack that had been thrown into a deep ocean? Yet, when we give our sin over to Him, He stuffs it in a sack, like garbage and chucks it into the sea. Gone forever!!! How cool is that!!?!!?!!
Our God is a gracious, merciful and loving God!
