“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 shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11 (ESV)
It’s not our words that matter, that make a difference, that deliver an eternal impact, it’s God’s words. The word of God, His promises, is what will save a soul and turn a sinner to repentance. We don’t always see the impact or the outcome, but the Holy Spirit can and does bring conviction through God’s word. It is the words from the Bible that bring life to the dying, comfort to the grieving, and peace to the troubled.
Let’s pray today that we may be quick to share the words of God with others, not our own.
