Do we truly understand what God’s word can be for us…especially during the difficult times of life? Today, I would like to share two special Bible verses with you, from Isaiah 55:10-11…and we read… “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. 11 It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.”
When I was younger, I wasn’t much of a reader and I struggled in school, just to do the basics; but those times changed, as I went through some very hard times in my life. In fact…God’s word actually became a survival manual in my life…and I truly believe that I not only survived the pain and deep heartache in my life through Jesus Christ; but also through His word.
The Bible verses above are saying that just as the rain and snow produce water for the seed; so does God’s word produce much within our lives…and just think…wherever our hearts take hold of His word; these words will continue to produce and sustain us through the hard and difficult times of life.
Today, when I look at highlighted verses and ruffled up pages that are barely holding their own, within my Bible; I think back to a time, when those treasured words kept me pointed in the right direction and helped me to discover hope…and even more…saved my life!
No matter what you may be facing; let God’s word comfort your heart and allow each word to penetrate deep within the heart and become the true and lasting remedy, for whatever is ailing you right now!
