Victory Vitamin Blog – Isaiah 55:10-11

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.”

-Isaiah 55:10-11 NIV

 

 

It’s always nice when things work the way they’re supposed to.  That’s God’s promise to us when it comes to the Bible.  God’s Word will accomplish what He desires, and it will achieve the purpose for which He sent it.  The fancy word for things that do what they say they’ll do is “efficacious”.  God’s Word is efficacious.  That’s reason enough to read it, study it, and hear it on a regular basis.  In Isaiah 55, God says that just as rain causes crops to grow, so His Word will cause us to produce fruit.  Do you feel stagnant in your faith life?  Have you hit a spiritual wall?  Crack open your Bible.  The power is there.  Power to comfort you, power to strengthen you, power to forgive you.  Jesus died to earn forgiveness and eternal life for you.  God then put the power to forgive and save in His Word, the Bible.  It’s all there in one neat little package.  66 books packed with God’s power to accomplish His will in your life.  You don’t have to go it alone.  God’s efficacious Word is here to give you the power.

The Bible is unlike any other book. It is inspired by God, and was recorded by humans. Since it is God’s Word, it is powerful and efficacious.  In other words, it does what it says.  That’s great news for you and me as we face the ups and downs of daily life. In a world full of lies, God always does what He says. Find out more about Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23 NIV at Victory Lutheran Church on Sunday, July 16, 2017.
