Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. -Isaiah 53:4-5
The person who says he has no problems is not telling the truth. God has not called us to live in deceit and fantasy. A mere confession that we are problem-free is not biblical faith, but delusion. What we are free to confess if we are in covenant with Christ is that there is not a need we have, problem we face, crisis we encounter or dread looming before us that has not been dealt with in the atonement of Jesus Christ. How, when and where He manifests the outcome to us is His business. Ours is to celebrate what Christ has done in bearing all our iniquities on Himself.
