Word-Filled Wednesday - Psalms 103:12




"As far as the east is from the west,
so far has He removed
our transgressions from us."
Psalms 103:12

This is an extraordinary metaphor....and, it is in no way a hyperbole. God means what He says. So we can be confident that when we confess our sins and turn away from practicing them, He will remove those sins from us.

"The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
Psalms 103:8-12 NIV
