KEY VERSE: Micah 7:18 (Micah to God)
Where is another God like you, who pardons the guilt of the remnant, overlooking the sins of his special people? You will not stay angry with your people forever, because you delight in showing unfailing love.
IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Watch for my activity. I am at work in the world and your life. See if you can spot me. Wait on me. I can hear you. I will always respond to your call or cry. Trust me before you put your faith in a friend or neighbor or the “sure thing.” Many will claim authority and provide stability, but I am the only one on whom you can depend. Your enemy may mock or laugh or claim to be victorious. Don’t let that bother you. I will have the final word.
I have revealed my wonders in the past, and I will do so again. Many will seek me, finally recognizing there is none like me. Consider what I’ve done for you, and how I have dealt with your sin. I have forgotten it. I have thrown it into the bottom of the ocean. I have swept it away and hurled it far, far from here. I have forgiven your sins. I have wiped them out. Live with confidence and humility. You are free.
Talk to God today. He has not forgotten you, and he never will. Thank him for forgiving your sin. Thank him for his presence in your life. Look for someone to remind of God’s faithfulness and kindness.
