Rain, Snow, and the Word of God

"As the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55

All creation has a purpose......even the snow. In Isaiah, snow is used as an analogy to describe the purpose of God's Word. His Word was perfectly thought out and masterfully planned, so it could be utilized by believers to accomplish the Father's all-powerful, life-changing plans....plans He has to prosper us, not to harm us, and to give us hope and a future (Jer. 29:11) . Have you thought about that before? In Ephesians 6, God's Word is called a "sword"......a weapon to be used against the enemy's schemes. How often do you pray His Word? Let me ask the question another way.....are your words more powerful than His Words? Of course not. Once believers grasp this truth, it changes everything. When we put His Words into our hearts, then boldly speak them back to the Giver of Life out of love, faith and adoration, the enemy flees and God's power is set into motion.....never returning void, but accomplishing MUCH!!!

Redemption is found in the blood.....Power is found in the Word!
