Isaiah 43:25 also says
I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.
This is God’s declaration towards your wrong deeds. Mostly, we get angry when we tend to keep the wrong things people do against us in mind, such that, anytime we remember them we wish to retaliate. Since God doesn’t have our sins in mind, it means he will never be angry with us and that also means he will never punish us for our sins
Just as I swore in the time of Noah that I would never again let a flood cover the earth, so now I swear that I will never again be angry and punish you.
God has no memory of your sins. Don’t think that when God sees you, all he sees is sin and when he thinks about you, all he thinks of is sin. God hates sin and that means that sin doesn’t have a place in his mind. That’s why he’s made you his righteousness. So all that his mind is stayed on is righteousness and not sin.
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
These verses tell us that God wants our mind stayed on him and every good thing. Why do we think God will want us to fix our minds on him whiles he fixes his mind on our sins? If God wants our mind stayed on him and good things, then we can’t say that God constantly dwells his mind on sin. There’s nothing pure, honest or of good report about sin. Therefore, in the Father’s mind is not how messy we are in ourselves but how righteous we are in Christ.
All our sins are forgiven and God does not remember them. So what do you do when you do something wrong and you feel bad? We already established that in Christ, we have forgiveness as we saw in Ephesians 1:7 and Colossians 1:14. Since we already have forgiveness, if we do anything wrong, we can acknowledge and declare that we are forgiven…
