As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.- Psalms 103:12
How far is the east from the west? For however far it is, Christ will forgive us of our sins, all we need to do is ask. We carry so much around with us and at times, it feels like that it will consume us to where we think we will fail and God will leave us there, that He will not forgive. For the Bible teaches He will forgive us of all sins, except for blasphemy of the Holy Ghost. So we can ask for forgiveness, and He loves us so very much that He will. As far as the east is from the west, He will remember it no more.
Sin weighs us down, causes worry, doubt, fear, and will eventually come between your walk with God. When we feel like we are drowning in the seas and storms of our past and we just want peace and rest. That is where we need to be cleansed. For us to be freed, to feel peace, joy, love, and the closeness that comes from God, we must ask for forgiveness. In His arms we find peace, rest, shelter, and mercy that we can receive when we ask for forgiveness.
Just how far is the east from the west? It’s from one scarred hand to the other..
