Since my people are crushed, I am crushed;
I mourn, and horror grips me.
Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
True love has the ability to bear the pain of its beneficiaries. It continually seeks out ways to lessen and or eradicate the pain and effects of negativity.
The single most poignant event in our history is one where the whole human race was hurled into an abysmal future of sickness, war, poverty and the utter despair they bring even on the seemingly safe and progressive. The demented human minds that continue on a moral decay of dystopian promotions. Children being abused, others snuffed out of life even before they get to see the light of day all in the name of choice.
All of this started the day Adam yielded to the bait of satan. Just one bite and all went wrong. But thanks be to GOD for His matchless love, unfailing and a wonder that shall be our eternal song. The wonder of it all, that we would be recipients of the Grace, the very opposite of what fate in Adam had decided. For in Adam we all died.
Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people.
1. Give thanks for this wonder of love, that GOD could hurt, taking upon himself our pain to exchange it for peace.
2. Pray that no spiritual slumber would ever dupe you out of that truth and the Joy it brings
3. Pray that your heart would be proved to be genuinely grateful by the choices you make each day.
