Jesus is Watching
“He shall see [the fruit] travail of His soul and be satisfied…” (Isaiah 53:11) Amp.
Isaiah 53:11 says that Jesus will watch and see the travail of His soul and be satisfied as He justifies many and makes them righteous. Can you appreciate what He did for you and receive His sacrifice and the travail of His soul? Can you receive your redemption as a gift with a grateful heart?
He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities. His outward wounding was for our obvious transgressions or sins, the things we do, stepping over the line or crossing over the boundary that has been set up by God. He took the punishment that we deserve.
He was bruised for our iniquities. A bruise is a wound on the inside that shows up later on the outside. An iniquity is also an internal problem that shows up on the surface later. Iniquity is a hidden sin, possibly a habit of sin that has been in your family for generations. The outward evidence does not show up for some time. Jesus died for obvious sins and iniquities, the hidden tendencies that you my not have even seen as sin.
Stop and open your heart to Jesus and ask Him to search your heart right now. Confess all sins and sinful habits or iniquities as the Holy Spirit brings them to your attention. As you have confessed your sins, receive His forgiveness. Jesus is watching to see who will receive His redemption. When you receive it, you will feel the peace of His satisfaction.
