“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 NKJV
I’ve always loved this particular verse of scripture from the Prophet Isaiah, with The Lord God’s declaration of His spoken word completing the task which The Lord has purposed. This verse doesn’t just apply to the spoken Word but also the written Word. This verse speaks of The Lord’s sovereignty and control over all circumstances and situations. “His will be done” This is a proclamation of comfort and peace to the weary hearts and minds of those that have put their faith and trust in The Lord Jesus Christ. That all the promises of The Lord God are guaranteed for all time and eternity. We need not worry or fear the political, financial, cultural, and moral degradation that is happening in the world around us. No person or thing will ever hinder the plans of The Lord God and we can rest in His loving hands with full assurance of Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
May The Lord God Almighty bring peace and comfort to you and your loved ones this day and every day, through every trial and tribulation with the blessed assurance of Christ Jesus, our Savior and Lord, Amen.
1 Peter 3:15 ESV “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”
Beloved follower of The Lord, Christ Jesus, we must always be mindful of how you walk in this world, “not straying to the left or the right”, but honoring The Lord God, with your words, actions, and thoughts, regardless of your emotional or physical circumstances. Through the indwelling of The Holy Spirit, we must prepare each day to share the truth of Christ Jesus to a lost and broken world with the testimony of our words and our lives. Finally, let us fill ourselves with all that The Lord God is and let His love, His peace, and His gentleness flow through us like “streams of living water”.
Gracious Heavenly Father, in this new year, grant us the determination to be bold and courageous in how we honor You. That when this world looks at us, they only see You, Lord, in all your goodness and graciousness. We pray, Father, that your Holy Spirit will guide us to do Your will and to be ready to give a reason for the hope that is in us, in Jesus’ Name Amen.
