God’s Selective Memory

God is omniscient–He knows everything. God is omnipresent, which means He’s everywhere at once, including in the Past, Present, and Future. So it would stand to reason that God would remember everything. And yet God Himself claims to operate in what I would call “selective memory.”

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Heb 8:12

Remember all those bad things you did before you got saved? God doesn’t. Remember all those bad things you did after? God doesn’t remember them either. That’s why “there is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.” Rom 8:1

But what about the good things? About that, the Bible says “God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have shown toward his name.” Heb 6:10.

So as long as we strive to serve Him, God forgets our bad deeds and rewards our good ones. Selective memory. Don’t you just love it?

Your friend, and partner in world harvest,
