by His stripes you are healed!

Christ was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.  Isaiah 53:5 

 Sometimes scripture can be misunderstood, sometimes the promises within His word can even be manipulated into what we want to believe verses what His real purpose is meant to be. Do you know how many times I prayed that scripture over Jack. I trusted God and had confidence in my sons healing through Christ. He was coming home, the comfort God allowed me was overwhelming and unexplainable. I watched Jack carry his cross for 58 long days.  And after he passed, I was home, sitting without my baby and crying out to God... "You said, he would be healed! You said, by Christ's stripes we are  healed! You promised healing! You assured me... healing." 

At that very moment, deep in my sorrow God spoke within me. His words were kind, He said, "Yes I did promise these things and yes, your son is home and he is healed by Christ's stripes, by His broken and crushed bones your son has LIFE. Now go tell the world."
