God’s Word Will Not Return Void
“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.” – Isaiah 55:11
Hey, friends! How are you? I hope that you are well. Thank you for showing me love and support in reading and subscribing to my blog. I appreciate you!
When I’m feeling down and discouraged, there’s a particular promise of God’s that lifts my spirit. It sort of supercedes His other promises for me. It’s like the promise of all promises.
The Lord says that His Word will not return void, or empty, but it will do just what He pleases and prosper in the thing for which He sent it (Isaiah 55:11).
Friends, that’s not a light statement. God is promising us that His promises will not fail. His promises won’t return empty. His promises will accomplish that which He pleases. And His promises will prosper in what He sends them to do.
I love that.
He’s sent His promises to give us life and hope and peace.
So when God says “I will never leave you nor forsake you,” we can trust that He won’t (Hebrews 13:5). When His Word says, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand,” we can stand on His promises (Isaiah 41:10). And when He says, “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose,” we can believe just what He says.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11
His words won’t return empty. His promises are sure. He is trustworthy. We can hold the Lord at His word.
“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” – 2 Corinthians 4:17
God will never put more on us than we can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). It may seem like we have too much to bear at times, but we can stand on that promise of God, also.
As I meditate on these Scriptures today and am encouraged by them, I hope that you will find hope in them, too, and the courage to brave another day.
May God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you.
