Wow. What an incredible promise!
God's word will not return empty. It will accomplish all that He desires. It will achieve the purpose for which He sent it!!!
I can tell you first hand, God's ways are indeed higher than my own. He never ceases to amaze me! He is a miracle performing God. He scoffs at conventional wisdom and supposed limitations. Impossible??? Ha! Watch this! When He moved the walls of Jericho tumbled down. When He spoke a leper was cleansed in muddy Jordan water. When God moves vast Midianite armes are defeated (by a small group of 300 men)...Red Seas part...Giants fall!
Today, my faith is strengthened by Isaiah 40:28-31, which says:
"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." NIV
Please hear the intent of my heart and message today...we better NEVER run after something lofty and attribute God's name to it just because it defies human reasoning...HOWEVER...WHEN GOD SPEAKS... WHEN WHAT HE CALLS US TO DO lines up with His Word...we better NEVER cower to impossibility!
- When He calls us to serve and put one another's needs above our own...He will meet our needs. (Luke 6:38)
- When all seems lost we can faithfully serve God knowing that we will reap a harvest of good, if we don't give up. (Galatians 6:9)
- When God tells us to build an ark we can know He WILL send the rain, even when its been dry for 100 years! (He did it for Noah!)
But...when God speaks we can trust Him! As believers, when we align our life with God's character, when we align our life with HIS WORD, we can know that God fulfills His promises!
Today, my prayer is that each one of us will be lead by His grace and do all things for His glory!
