“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” - Isaiah 53:5-6

If Jesus abased and humbled Himself,
then why don’t we hold Him in esteem?
If He was obedient even unto the cross,
then why won’t His salvation we redeem?
If He bore His own grief and sorrow,
then why don’t we think He’ll take ours?
If He took upon Himself our punishment
then why don’t we see His scars?
If He was wounded for our transgressions,
then why do we still pursue after sin?
If He was bruised for our iniquities,
then why does immorality still win?
If His chastisement became our peace,
then why do we still have so much conflict?
If by His stripes, we have been healed,
then why do we on others ~ pain inflict?
If He was oppressed and treated unfairly,
then why do we still treat Him this way?
It must be true what the Bible tells us,
all of His sheep . . . have gone astray!
- 2013, Deborah Ann Belka

Prayer: 
Jehovah Rapha, You are the Great Healer, I bind and rebuke any spirit of infirmity over my body, in Jesus’ name. Heal and renew my cells with Your life force. Flood my body with the blood of Your son Jesus and send a flow of Your healing light through my cells, organs, and tissues of the living body that You created. Fill my body with the peace and understanding that they are healed in Jesus’ name! You sacrificed Your son Lord so that we will be free of sin and sickness. Amen.
