10 As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
it will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
It was this same prophet Isaiah who said in chapter 40 verse 8 that “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures for ever.” There is so much inconsistency in this world. Finance and business are unpredictable, our loved ones can turn against us, even authors of so called daily devotionals can let us down (hypothetical situations of course), but God’s word is as sure and as dependable as anything would ever get.
God’s promise to us is that we can look at the rain and the snow, knowing that they will come down from the sky and know that God’s Word is just as dependable and in fact will always accomplish its mandate.
This week, we will be looking at the principle of sowing and reaping and what better place to start that the fact that our God who is Himself 100% dependable sows his word into our lives and we can be sure that it will never return to Him empty, but it will always hit the mark and achieve the desired result.
Our challenge is to read, study and meditate on His word and also to prayerfully and intentionally open our hearts to its power and effect and we can be guaranteed that we will reap a massive harvest. I trust that you will heed this challenge today and onwards and my prayer is that you may enjoy the blessing of God through His word.
