GOD’S WORD FOR MAY 31
Isaiah 55:10-11 ~ ~ “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth
and making it produce and sprout, and providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the purpose for which I sent it.”
We all learned in grade school science class why the oceans don’t overflow from the rain. The Mississippi River alone dumps six million gallons of water into the Gulf of Mexico EVERY SECOND!
That’s just one river! A lot of evaporation and condensation is taking place at every one of those seconds! And thus the cycle continues.
Even though the Word of God from back in Solomon’s reign knew about the cycle of the earth’s water, apparently the “scientists” didn’t read what was written because they didn’t know the simple concept until the 16th or 17th century.
When we think about the cycle of water, we can see that God’s Word does the same thing spiritually——it comes to us, nourishes our hearts and minds, (as the rain does for the soil) accomplishing what He intends for it to accomplish in us, and returns to Him, but the blessings remain. (Isaiah 55:10-11-above) We need to be in the Word, use it for encouraging others, and ourselves, being ready to use it as a weapon of spiritual warfare, and for worshiping Him. The Word is
living, (Hebrews 4:12). Jesus is the Living Word.
