Posts Tagged ‘will not return to me empty’

-1

As I snuggled down into the suds of the bath water, ready for a few moments of peace and relaxation to end the day, I heard the following words from the radio broadcast playing from the bathroom counter top :

” … my word that goes out from my mouth will not return to me empty …”

And with those words, the endless to do list in my head dissolved, and my brain became preoccupied with those words, and the depth of their meaning.

If you, like me, have ever had opportunity to share the word of God with another person you will understand that horrifically dreadful feeling when we think that we failed miserably in our execution of sharing of God’s word.

Being married to one who preaches from the Word of God on a regular basis, I have certainly have heard the words, after returning home from a Sunday church service, “I blew it” from hubby.

But this passage would indicate that those words, that feeling of the failure of good delivery of the most important message on Earth, are always safely executed, because God himself has ordained that His word will always be heard. It would seem that, perhaps, the mystical nature of God’s word is such that once it is expressed through the lips of man, it travels into the ears of others through the direct leading of God himself.

This confirms to us that God’s word is His, from beginning to end, from first breath until the last word is heard by another’s ear.

We cannot ruin the delivery of the word of God … it is His, never ours, and it is in His best interest that it is heard … and He even ensure that.

“So, whoever speaks my words,no matter how freaking ridiculously poor,
they are still My words,
and they will reach the ears of the one who I decree should hear them.
Imagine how fantastic an author I am 😉 “
The Carole Wheaton version of Isaiah 55:10
