I was very excited to graduate high school and move on to college, where I felt like I could start over with a clean slate; nobody would really know the kind of person I was before (voted Class Snob, Class Flirt, etc.).
Isaiah 53:5-6 “But He (Jesus) 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 his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.”
Isaiah 53:11 “As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant will justify the many, and He will bear their iniquities.”
The enemy wants to keep you in the mud; to beat you up while you are down. But, the LORD is the lifter of your head. He is mighty to save. He is present and more than able to do the impossible. Nothing is too hard for Him. Ask for help. He is here; right here in our mess. Jesus lived and died to set us free from the wages of sin- which is death, and to give us new life, in Him. Turn, return, and live this life, this one life, for His glory; you will not regret it!
