“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 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 55:10-12). “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” Timothy 3:16).
If I have Jesus Christ in my life, I am never alone. If I believe in Him, do I also believe Him? If I believe in Him, I must believe in His Truth.....God to us revealed through His Word. If I believe His Word is His Truth, then I must believe in what it says. I must never say I believe in Him, and not believe what He gives as Truth. God's Word existed before all creation (John 1:1). He speaks the Word through divine revelation in the Bible. His Word goes forth to accomplish His purposes. He states that it will accomplish what He desires and will achieve the purpose for which He sent it. This is straight from His Word and it is His promise of Truth.
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). His Word is alive. It is living and breathing right now. Its Truth holds me accountable for what I think, and reveals if I am living as He instructs. It uncovers the attitude of my heart...... if there are any selfish motives or anything that sets itself up against God's Truth or if I am His in every corner of my heart. It shows me what must be crucified in my life, and it gives what I need to accomplish it.
The Word's purpose is to teach me God's Truth. It disciplines me. It rebukes what is sinful in my life. It corrects wrong thinking, and transforms my mind. It teaches me that godliness is not just an action. Godliness is what I need to have in my heart. The Word exposes all that I must change. It reveals His call in my life. It give me His divine promises so that through them I may participate in His divine nature. His Word breathes in me, and as it does, I discover all of the promises for which He sent it to me.
