Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: It shall not return unto me void, But it shall accomplish that which I please, And it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
God’s Word works. It accomplishes His purposes. There are several lessons to be learned here.
One it is the very Word of God. It is alive and powerful. It works.
Second, it works doing whatever He meant for it to do. There is nothing magical about the Word. It is God that gives the Word that makes it happen. So If I am to teach and preach the Word of
God correctly I will have to divide it rightly. I will have to know what God was saying in the passage. What is His purpose?
Third, knowing the Word works makes me responsible to really study it and understand it. It will accomplish its purpose, not my intention. It will do what He sends it to do. It will accomplish what pleases Him.
Be careful. It is His Word, and it works.
