Scripture- “All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.”
Isaiah 53:6 NKJV
Observation- These are words from God given to Isaiah, the prophet, far before the virgin birth. The whole book of Isaiah is full of prophecy about this "Messiah" the redeemer of man, who was Jesus. This scripture says that just like sheep, we too have gone astray and still do at times! The good news is that God knows we're sinners and sent Christ to bear the weight of our sins.
Application- So maybe you're at a point in your life where you've been astray for awhile. If you have, that's okay. No matter how many times you stray away, God is still pursuing you, yes you! The scripture is great proof of His love for you and I, He knows we're sinners and yet He still sent Christ to die for us. Today, if you are one of those sheep that are astray, it's never too late to get back on the path; God desires to know you personally.
Prayer- Lord thank you for loving us unconditionally though it's not deserved. I know that even though I was lost, I know that you have rescued me and will continue to pursue me in my worst times. Continue to humble me before when I may forget all that you have done for me. Amen.
