Isaiah 55:10-11 For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there until they have watered the earth, making it bring forth and sprout giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth, it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

God’s word goes forth as it is read. It goes forth as it is heard. Most especially, I think, it goes forth when it is enacted. As we live God’s word in acts and prayers of care and compassion for the people and situations we encounter, we become God’s word at work, assured of accomplishing God’s purpose, independent of whether or not we see any immediate results.                       Pastor Bill
