So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
Rain never goes back to the clouds.
Snow never flutters back up to the sky.
They can’t. It violates science.
That’s not how things work.
No, snow and rain go where they are supposed to.
They do what they were intended to do.
Water the earth.
And they accomplish their ultimate purpose.
Bringing forth fruit.
That’s the lesson in verse 10
Verse 11 begins “So.’
In the same way.
Just like that.
God’s word goes forth.
It does not return to Him. He doesn’t renege.
It accomplishes what He wants. They aren’t empty words.
And it succeeds bringing about the results He desires. They aren’t idle words.
God’s words are a reflection of His character.
When He speaks, we can have confidence.
We can find comfort.
We can face life with courage.
Last Monday’s post, Perspective, was from Isaiah 55 also. Check it out. It’s worth reading all of Chapter 55 if you have a chance.
