Isaiah 53:5 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.

How much pain do we carry around because we simply forget to live within the stripes?
Or maybe because we are so proud of our stripes that we kind of like to show them off? Battle scars anyone?

I got so many scars.... but thankfully, after I fall, He's always there to pick me up!

Saija said...

yes ... He has taken it all for us ... i'm so glad to be found within His stripes!

I sure am not proud of my stripes.
After all he paid them for me and think it would make Him really sad if we were proud of them.
Oh such deep pain He bore for me Sara when he paid for ALL of my sins and my health by his stripes....Love Terry

I like that, "Live within the stripes"..

That is one of the greatest comments I have read from you and some of them have been tremendous. Maybe it's because I realize it's because BY HIS STRIPES! I would hope and pray that I live within the stripes! God is so good and to be proud of our scars would be like Him dying in vain for us.

living within the stripes ....awesome analogy! I think far too many people carry their pain around like a badge of honor or revel in it somehow...they are defined by it...How sad..
... He already paid...I'm not naive enough to think that pain isn't a tool in His hands but living in Him, inside His provision...the greater glory.
