Isaiah 53:10-12 (NLT)
10 But it was the LORD's good plan to crush him and fill him with grief. Yet
when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of
children, many heirs. He will enjoy a long life, and the LORD's plan will
prosper in his hands. 11 When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish,
he will be satisfied. And because of what he has experienced, my righteous
servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will
bear all their sins. 12 I will give him the honors of one who is mighty and
great, because he exposed himself to death. He was counted among those who were
sinners. He bore the sins of many and interceded for sinners.

Long before the arrival of Jesus Isaiah wrote about the saving grace of the
Lord. He described Christ's death and those who would be saved through his
death. Christ who suffered for ALL and bore ALL sins was satisfied to see what
He accomplished. While he did not sin, he was counted among sinners and
interceded for those same sinners.

There is a saying that those who fail to plan, plan to fail. If you have ever
had to run a complicated project or put together something with many parts you
probably understand the need for a plan. God in His infinite wisdom understood
the need for a plan. So God put a plan in place for Christ to bare the sins of
many sinners and for them to be counted righteous. They become children, heirs
to God's kingdom and they prosper according to His plan. Aren't you thankful
for a God who plans for your future, who has had you in mind from long ago.
Pray that God continues to unfold His plan for your life. Thank Him for all
that He has done so far. Thank Him for His plan of salvation that He so freely
gave us all.
