God Says You Are Forgiven

I am the God who forgives your sins, and I do this because of who I am. I will not hold your sins against you. Isaiah 43:25 (TEV)

"God doesn't hold a grudge. If you have received Jesus as your Savior, then there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. "

Some of us, even though we're believers, think whenever we're having problems that God's getting even with us; that God's just trying to get back at us. 

It’s like the guy who was driving up to a mountain lake and on the way up it starts snowing, so he gets out to put chains on his tires.  While he’s doing this, another car comes along and slams into his car. And he watches in horror as his car goes over a cliff.

He continues up the mountain on foot - in the snow and sleet, and he’s getting sick from the cold. Then, as he rounds a corner, he sees that his cabin has burned down.  He starts hitting his head against the wall, and asks, “Why me, God."  The heavens part and a voice says, “Because some people just tick me off.”

Some of you may feel that is the way God feels about you.  You think that whenever you've got a problem, God is ticked off. But the Bible says, “I am the God who forgives your sins, and I do this because of who I am. I will not hold your sins against you.” (Isaiah 43:25 TEV) God doesn't hold a grudge.  If you have received Jesus as your Savior, then there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ.  He doesn't rub it in, He rubs it out.  He doesn't rehearse it, He releases it.
