God Doesn’t Forget; He Does Remember No More

In Jeremiah 31.34, God declares, “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”…. Forgiveness is defined as God not remembering our sins. That is, the Lord promises not to call to mind our record of wrongs against Him and use our record against us. He promises not to accuse us before others. He promises to remember our sins no more.
