Isaiah 55:11 “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Are you familiar with that passage of Scripture? It’s one of my favorites! (And if you follow my blog you’ll know that I have a lot of favorite scriptures! LOL) But the reason I love it, is because it’s a promise to us. God watches over His Word to perform it in our lives.
So why is it that there are times when we don’t see His Word come to pass?
Many of us will rationalize it and say, “Well, it must not be His will…” And there may be times when that is true. Like say, we put in an offer for a house that we wanted and we didn’t get it. Okay, maybe in this case it wasn’t His will.
But what about the promises God shares with us in His Word? How do we rationalize that away when we’re believing for something that doesn’t happen? Like healing. There are several scriptures that talk about healing. How Jesus died for our healing. And yet, when we don’t experience that healing we say it wasn’t His will.
But wouldn’t that make God a liar? And God says in Numbers 23:19, “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent: Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?”
So, why is it that if we’re believing for healing, or any other promise, and don’t receive it that we say it wasn’t God’s Will?
The problem is we don’t believe God’s Word as much as He does. 🙂
When we establish within ourselves that God cannot lie and take Him at His Word, then I believe we’ll see the prosperity of His Word in our lives. And His Word won’t return to Him or us void.
Just think about it. 🙂
Be Blessed and Have a Fantastic Day!
