Isaiah 53:5-6 But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds, we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned – every one- to his own way; and the Lord has laid o him the iniquity of us all.
There is no peace outside of God and true healing comes through Him as well. Jesus’ death on the cross not only brought us salvation (which would be enough) but it also brought us the ability to have peace, hope, and healing in our lives. So often just as this verse says we try to go it alone and take care of our problems or carry the weight of them on our own shoulders and then we wonder why there’s no peace in our lives. Jesus died on the cross to take those burdens from you so why do you want to carry it all yourself?
As the song, “Same Power” by Jeremy Camp says, “the same power that rose Jesus from the grave……. lives in us!” The Almighty God of all has chosen to live with you and in you if you have asked Him to be your Savior! It doesn’t get any better than that! Trust that you can expect Him to do mighty things in and through you, but you must follow Him! You must keep your “yes” on the table. Ask Him for the faith you need for your situation and trust Him to see you through! Let go of all of your fears and trust Him.
There’s no love that can compare to Jesus’ love as He laid down His own life for us, not only to cover all of our sins but to bring us healing, hope, peace and a close walk with Him. With the power of God living within you through the Holy Spirit after you have been saved all of these things are yours if you allow Him to fully rule in your life. Don’t waste another day carrying everything yourself, He paid a dear price to carry it all for you so put it at the foot of the cross.
I have no idea what you may be facing today but please know that Jesus paid such a dear price to take all of your burdens and sin on Himself all you have to do is accept the forgiveness of sin and lay your burdens at His feet for Him to take. He loves you beyond anything you can imagine – trust Him!
