When the LORD speaks
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, 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 55:10-11 (NKJV)
As the rain comes down… the Hebrew word used for rain here denotes a violent rain, something like a deluge. Here the Lord is not talking about a soft misty rain that we enjoy, but a severe rain fall. We know that when such a rain fall comes, two things happen.
- So much water goes waste and
- Whatever crop has grown already, it will be destroyed.
So generally severe rain causes much loss to us.
Probably your life looks like that at present. There are so many promises that the Lord has given to you and it sort of looked like a deluge. Whenever you prayed, the Lord comforted you with choice words. As you read the Bible, beautiful verses gave you so much consolation. Then the Lord confirmed His promises to you through His servants. You felt so happy.
But now, it looks like most of those promises have gone into the ocean as the rain water does. You see that there is no more chance for some or most of the promises to be fulfilled. And because you believed in those promises, you lost few things that you could have gained.
My dear friend, I have been there. And I can tell you only one thing. His Word never fails. Never. It may look like all those promises have gone waste. That those promises have caused you more loss. But the Word of the LORD never goes back to Him void. It will accomplish the purpose for which He sent it. And it pleases the LORD to bless you. (Numbers 24:1) Hold on to your faith, for His Word will prosper in due time.
