Morning Thought: On the cross Jesus cried out the first verse of Psalm 22: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” At that moment the wrath of God covered his soul like a dark cloud; he could not fathom the reason he was forsaken. But now we know why. “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” (Isa. 52:5). Today, kneel before the cross and receive God’s forgiveness, peace and healing.
