We remember that God forgets

Psalm 103:12-Romans 8:1

Is it possible that God forgets? In some sense, the plain meaning of the texts above states that God has forgotten our rebellion, our transgressing His law, or even our indifference to Him and His ways.

His command to us is that we never forget that He has forgotten.

He commands us to remember His faithfulness toward us, even when we feel the pain of our losses. His word to us is that we keep good records of what He has done for us.

Deuteronomy 6:1-12 encourages God’s people to do all sorts of things to remember. Some of them might even seem silly. Place remembrances on door posts? On my wrist? In between my eyes?

What is it that God is after? 6:12 says, be careful that you do not forget the Lord.

So how about as we sit around the table we remember the things that the God who forgets has done for us.
