God: picked up the tab…
Isaiah 53:4-5 (KJV) “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 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”.
The tumults of this life is many and from one moment to the next we can’t be sure what we will be dealing with and as sure as there is life and breath, there will be more that we deal with in this life ceaselessly.
But for those of us who have been enlightened and come to the knowledge of who God is and what He wants to bring to our life, this is not a road that we travel alone. God gave His son as an appropriation for us: our sins, our sickness and our redemption.
Jesus has picked up the tab, He has paid the price for all we could ever experience in this life and surely the stripes He suffered was not in vain.
Beloved and loved of God: your tab has been paid in full.
