“But the very hairs of your head are numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30,31.
Do you have personal items that you frequently forget or lose? Well, I do. One winter, I had a pair of gloves that I wore to a Bible study. When I returned home, I realized that my gloves were missing. I went back to the garage and looked all over inside the car but I couldn’t locate it. A week later I went back to the Bible study, and lo and behold, they were there! It happens that the following day I was making a visit and I wore my gloves again because it was a cold day. When I got out of the car, I realized that it was missing. But this time I couldn’t find it anymore. Two times in two weeks, I lost my pair of gloves.
When you look around there are many items around us that we easily forget. They are not needed all the time but there will be times when you need it and you cannot locate it. One of them is an umbrella. If you noticed, people always lose their umbrellas. People take it out on a rainy day. As the rain clears up and gets sunny during the day, people forget to retrieve it and bring it back home. Does that sound like you? We have a tendency to forget. In fact, God knows and remembers everything about us that He does not forget. He even knows and remembers the number of hairs on each one of us! And we should be thankful that He did not forget about us. That is why He saves us! Because He remembers.
But you know what the best part about this is? God says in Jeremiah, “For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.” Jeremiah 31:34. When God remembers us, He forgets our sins. He completely erases them! How can this be? It only happens when we accept God and allow Him to put “(His) law in (our) minds, and write it on (our) hearts.”
