Power of Words

TODAY’S SPECIAL: Isaiah 55:8-13

TO CHEW ON: "As the rain and 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

Words are funny little things. As marks on paper or a screen they can make us laugh or cry, tell us good news or bad, prove little things like we’ve passed the test or big things like we’re the citizens of a certain country.

Spoken words have a lot of power too. I’m sure you’ve heard the playground rhyme: “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” Do you believe it? I don’t! Because spoken words have the power to do a lot of things, including hurt us.

If we think human words have power, how much more God’s words. These are the thoughts and ideas that come from the creator of the universe Himself – God. They are found as words in the Bible. They tell us about creation, people and God. They give us the good news that even though we deserve to die because we have sinned, Jesus died in our place. They tell us we can be friends with God. They explain how He wants to be the loving boss of our lives. They describe how we can live so that He will be pleased.



Are you familiar with God’s words? Do you read the Bible? Do you memorize it? Do you do what it says? Make God’s powerful word a part of your life. That may mean that your life isn’t always easy - but it will be full of joy and peace.

PRAYER: Dear God, please help me to read, understand and obey Your word. Amen.
