He shall see [the fruit] of the travail of His soul and be satisfied; by His knowledge of Himself [which He possesses and imparts to others] shall My [uncompromisingly] righteous One, My Servant, justify many and make many righteous (upright and in right standing with God), for He shall bear their iniquities and their guilt [with the consequences, says the Lord].
— Isaiah 53:11
For many of us, our biggest problem is that we don’t like ourselves, and our distorted outlook makes it difficult for us to believe that God could possibly love us.
For years I struggled with this problem. I spent at least 75 percent of my time trying to change myself, but all I really did was stress myself out while the devil constantly made me feel guilty. I never felt good enough.
Isaiah 53 tells us that when Jesus died for our sins, He also bore the guilt. He loved us so much that He paid the price so we wouldn’t have to suffer with the terrible feelings of condemnation. If we go to God and sincerely ask Him to forgive us, He does, so there is no reason to live with condemnation.
God loves you, and He wants you to believe it and receive it all the time. He also wants you to be free from guilt and condemnation. God says you are good enough. Accept that today and live a life of victory.
