7 Mar


Isaiah 53 is one of the most amazingly clear prophecies of Jesus and His death ever given in the Scripture. One of the verses is particularly powerful. It says, ‘The punishment for our peace fell upon Him.’

In the original Hebrew, it doesn’t say ‘The punishment for our peace.’ It says ‘the punishment for our shalom.’ Why is this important? Shalom means a lot more than peace. When you have shalom, you don’t just have peace, you have fullness, wholeness, prosperity, and well-being.

Jesus didn’t die simply so you would have peace. He died so you would have shalom. In Hebrew, it doesn’t say ‘our shalom’ but ‘shalomeinu.’ It’s not two words, but one: “our” and “the shalom” can’t be separated.

It’s inconceivable that in Jesus, you should ever be separated from shalom. Jesus didn’t die so you would ever be separated from shalom. He died that you and shalom would be together, that it would be inconceivable to ever imagine you without it.

So start receiving your ‘shalomeinu,’ your fullness, your wholeness, and your well-being. It’s His gift and it’s your shalomeinu.

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

No matter what your circumstances bring or what’s surrounding you, choose to live in the fullness of His Shalom.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
