It Will Grow

The reason many people in Church are apprehensive about getting involved is, because they are not sure if it will make a difference. They tend to focus on what can go wrong, rather than what good can come from it. God knows us because He is our creator, in Isaiah 55:6-11, God shares with us the power of His words.

In verse 6 we are instructed to “seek the Lord while He can be found”. The Lord will not change His position, but our position will change. None of us will be on earth forever, therefore, it’s important for us to seek the Lord while we have life. That’s why Jesus said in John 9:4, “we must work the works of Him who sent me while it is day, night is coming when no one can work.” In verse 7, He is calling out those that have done wrong to come back to Him, and He will abundantly pardon them. We are able to see the character of God and how He cares for us by giving us another chance to reconnect with Him. In giving these individuals this opportunity,  some may think they don’t deserve another chance. That’s why in verses 8 and 9,  the Lord shares His thoughts and ways are not like ours, they are much higher. In essence He is letting us know He has the final say on everything. In verse 10, God shares the purpose of rain and snow: To water the ground, to allow vegetation to grow, provide seed to the sower, and bread to the eater. God used this example to explain the purpose of His word in verse 11, “it shall not return to Me empty”. Whatever God’s word speaks to will grow, because nothing can remain the same in His presence. 

What has God spoken over your life? It’s time for you to trust God, and watch it grow before your very eyes. The Lord will always come through on everything He speaks His word over. Understand God is all in for you, now you have to be all in for Him.
