Isaiah 55:10-11 – For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
God’s word is analogous to rain and snow which come from heaven to water the earth and make things grow. God’s word is seed for the person who sows and the bread of life for the one who eats it. God’s word like the rain does not return void, the word will do as He has planned.
My role is to take advantage of the opportunities I have to share the word of God with others. Maybe today the word I share with someone is planting a seed to grow. First, I have to be in the Word to know it and have fresh bread. I have to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to give me the right thing to say and do in the situations which God has placed me. Knowing that when God’s word goes out it succeeds in accomplishing His purpose gives me confidence in reassuring me that this is not anything I’m doing, merely allowing the Spirit to work through me.
Thank you for this truth in your word. Let me be in the word and allow the Spirit guide me to share it with others knowing that your word will fulfill the purpose for which you sent it.
