More Than Bread Devotional for 4/9/12

4 Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed.  – Isaiah 53:4-5

There is no grief that can come to you that He doesn’t already know and understand.  He has borne them Himself long ago.  As we come off the celebration of the Resurrection, it is good to remember that He didn’t just concur death so that we can live forever.  He conquered death so that we can start living now.  Bring your sorrows, tears and difficulties to the throne of grace and cast them on Him.  He knows just what to do with it to bring healing.
