Often the godly remind the Lord of His promises, as an act of faith on their part rather than forgetfulness by God. The only thing He truly forgets is the sins that are covered by the blood of Christ. According to Scripture, He has cast them as far as the east is from the west (see Psa. 103:12).We can locate “north” on the earth, and say that it is a certain distance from “south” (there are approximately 22,000 miles between the two poles). However, we can’t locate “east” or “west” and define how far they are from each other. East is an infinite distance from west.
Nehemiah 1:8 Remember, I pray, the word that You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations;9 but if you return to Me, and keep My commandments and do them, though some of you were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to the place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.
