So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return void, But shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 NKJV
The book of Isaiah was written to the people of Judah many years ago. It was written to those of us living today!
Today I do not feel as though I am able to send out this message. It takes an extra measure of faith to type it out. It is at times like this that God can use me to reach people with His Word.
I have nothing of eternal value to say to anyone. God has much to say. When God sends forth His Word He accomplishes anything and everything He desires to accomplish!
Do not be deceived. The bible is the Word of God. The sands of time have not diminished the eternal value of every Word God delivered to us!
Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6 NKJV
The Lord is near today. He will hear if you call out to Him. You and I do not know what tomorrow may bring. It is simply not promised to us. There is an old saying that nothing is for certain except for death and taxes.
One day it will be too late to call out to the Lord. I cannot tell you when that fateful day will arrive. Not even Jesus knows when the Father will send Him for us!
The Lord is longsuffering and merciful. He loves us. He is waiting for us to call out to Him for deliverance and guidance. Jesus is waiting for us to call out to Him out of a sincere desire to know Him!
Nothing is for certain except that one day you will stand before Jesus!
None of us will want to stand before the Lord as anything other than a beloved child and dear friend. We will want to stand before Him in the righteousness of Christ. We will not want to be judged for our sins failures and mistakes!
Call out to Jesus today. He will answer. Call out to Him as a beloved child. He will call you His friend. He will call you His friend because you had the faith to answer when He called you.
Jesus is near enough to accomplish all He desires to accomplish in your life and with your life!
The Word of God will not return void. It will accomplish the purpose for which the Lord sends it. Jesus wants to use you to share the Word of God with people who need to hear from Him today!
