Isaiah 55: 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
The rain and snow fall for a purpose – to water the earth, to make the plants grow and to provide for the food needs of men. So it is with God’s word, which we have in the Bible. Too often people see the Bible as an instruction manual or a list of do’s and don’ts. The Bible certainly does have instruction in it and there is no doubt it contains do’s and don’ts – but it is far more than these things. It has a purpose from God Himself to water the hearts of men so that they will grow and provide life. This purpose will be fulfilled. While there are certainly people who harden their hearts, refuse to be affected by God’s word and will not be blessed there are also those who are willing. God’s word will have an effect, the issue is: will it have an effect in my life? Will I soften my heart to receive it? If I do, I can be assured it will accomplish His mighty purpose
