“The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
(Isaiah 55:10-11 NLT)
God’s Word is powerful! I’m often reminded of this passage whenever I read the Bible or listen to a message. It tells me that whatever I’ve read or heard will have an impact on my life because that’s what God is saying in the verse–His word won’t return to Him empty, but it will accomplish what He desires. I may not see its impact right away, but just like the rain and snow that water the earth and make it bud and flourish, providing seed for the sower and bread for the hungry, God’s Word will also achieve His purpose in due time. It never returns to Him empty.
God’s Word accomplishes His purposes.
