“He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.” Isaiah 53:3 ->me: I have made it to Isaiah 53! I have been looking forward to this day since I started my Quiet Times in Isaiah on May 24, 2017. Today – this God/Man sits at the right hand of God the Father in heaven as my advocate. He understands my pain, He understands my sadness, and He knows what makes me happy. He has walked this world and been the target of scorn, humbling, disappointment, and betrayal. He can and does sympathize with my situation and circumstances – He knows my struggle intimately (Hebrews 2:17 & 18). When I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am calling on those understandings of My Savior, my representative Who intercedes between a Holy and Almighty Creator in heaven and myself. Jesus bore my sin on the cross; why would He stop now at giving me what is best for me and my path to achieving His righteousness. When I am following my Savior by learning about Him and doing my best to emulate Him, I can rest assured that He will prepare the path before me….that is so comforting!
