“And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive with Him and forgave us all our trespasses. He erased the certificate of debt, with its obligations, that was against us and opposed to us, and has taken it out of the way by nailing it to the cross.” – Colossians 2:13-14
“Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:13-14
I was dead and He made me live. I had a debt I could never pay and He nailed that debt to His cross and made me debt free. Today, I declare that I am forgiven. All of my sins are under the blood of Jesus and I am free from the debt I owed for them. The penalty for my sins has been paid by my Savior and I will never be required to pay it. I am free to live forever.
Today, I will not dwell on what was. I turn toward home, toward what is ahead of me, not what is behind me. I will not be passive, but will press on, pursuing what God has for me. I will not look back, but will set my gaze on Jesus. Today, I will not sit in guilt and regret, but I will get up and walk in the forgiveness of God.
Today, I will praise God for the life and freedom He has given me.
