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, 11)
God's word that goes out of the his mouth cannot be stopped in fulfilling what it has been sent to do; it accomplishes what God desires and it has been so from the beginning. When God said, "Let there be light", light just came into being; no questions asked. No arguments entertained, even if there were any.
We read the following in Psalms 107:
Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. (Psalm 107:17-20)
When we pray, God sends his word and that brings healing, deliverance and peace. The word that God spoke during creation brought everything into being and we read in Genesis 1:
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good........ (Genesis 1:31)
The "let there be..." and "let the..." words spoken by God were so powerful that what was once "formless and empty and dark" became "very good". God, by his awesome power is able to change what is "formless and empty and dark" even in our lives into something "very good".
It's my prayer for you today that he may do such an awesome miracle for you in the coming days, that you praise his glorious name like the Israelites did when God delivered them. They sang in this manner:
When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them." The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. (Psalm 126:1-3)
