Daily Devotional – God’s Word Doesn’t Return Empty

By on September 1, 2021
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Isaiah 55:8-12. Jesus, the word of God was part of the creation. His word was effective in creating the universe and world, we all see the proof of that every day, and His word is still effective today!

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 As the rain and the 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,
11 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.
12 You will go out in joy
    and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
    will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
    will clap their hands.”

Jesus is the word and is faithful

God will achieve what He desires and sets forth. He will faithfully answer and fulfill His promises and commitments. As truly as rain falls from heaven, so truly we can trust and place our faith in God and His faithfulness.

God’s thoughts, plans, and ways of achieving His purposes are of intelligence that I can not comprehend. While I can allow the immediate circumstances to worry and consume me, the best thing is to rest in the hands of our creator. 

I know that I feel a sense of confidence rush through my soul as I remind myself of who my Father in heaven is. As I consider these things about God’s faithfulness, I feel my shoulders rest as I fall into His rest and peace. Let us practice peace by letting go, and letting God!

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you for Your faithfulness. You are faithful to bring about Your plans, plans that are for our good and Your glory. Help me by Your Holy Spirit today to rest and lean on You and Your faithfulness!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen
