Isaiah 54:4 “Do not fear, for you will not be put to shame, And do not feel humiliated or ashamed, for you will not be disgraced. For you will forget the shame of your youth, And you will no longer remember the disgrace of your widowhood.

We’ve all done some foolish things in our past. The devil holds these things over our heads. Daily, he’ll remind us of what we did. He let’s us know we’re too dirty to be used by God, we’ll be unsuccessful because of our past, and we are unlovable.

Through God’s grace, we’re forgiven of all our sins (Colossians 1:13-14). Not only does God forgive our sins, He forgets our sins too (Hebrew 8:12). And as we can see above, God’s Word instructs us to forget about our foolish past.

We forget about our past by receiving God’s forgiveness every time the thought of our foolish past comes up in our minds. The thought of when we cheated on our spouse or the thought of when we got fired from our jobs will enter our minds. The moment that thought comes, we receive God’s forgiveness and set our minds on a successful future.

Whatever negative event that’s playing in our minds, forget about it and receive God’s forgiveness.
