Isaiah 53:4-6

Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.
Isaiah 53:4-6
God has a plan that stands sure and cannot be thwarted. This plan is seen in the salvation of those who turn to Him. God’s plan is vividly demonstrated in the miraculous answer to the great dilemma: His Divine Love and Justice and man’s sin and need for a Redeemer. In His great plan, He determined to rescue His people Himself. Throughout the Old Testament, you will discover the facts of His determination to come and save His own people from their sin. There is the promise of a Messiah, one who would come first, as a Suffering Servant, dying in the place of the people so that the penalty for sin would be paid. Then, He would come as a Conquering King, ushering in the Kingdom of God and a new heaven and a new earth. You see, God will have you for Himself. Just as He has gone to the ends of the earth for one such as C.S. Lewis or Sheldon Vanauken, so He has done the same for you…look at this One who came from heaven to earth for you, who said Yes and went all the way to the cross…Have you looked to Jesus Christ as the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6)? Look to no other, but Him alone. He has made the claim and now you can trust in Him for the rest of your life. You will find that when you stand on what is true, you have a firm foundation that cannot be shaken. God bless you as you continue to walk with Him and hold on to Him in every circumstance of your life.
