“My word will not return to me void” ( Isaiah 55:11 )

Word Management

I really like the way Pastor Paul handles our title verse, Isaiah 55:11.

I am not sure how Judaism exegesis it.

But, I think missionaries might handle it with and within a bit of self.

Always placing ourselves in the message.

Pastor’s Paul main point is that this is God speaking in the first person.

It is his word and he is the one doing the doing.

Invitation to the Needy

…For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return without watering the earth, making it bud and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat,

so My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it. 

My quick take

Isaiah 55:10

  1. We often forget it is an invitation to the needy
  2. Heaven
    • Rain and Snow come from heaven
  3. Earth
    • Watering the earth
    • Making it bud and sprout
    • Seed to sow
    • Food to eat

Isaiah 55:11

  1. My
    • My word
    • My mouth
  2. Me
    • Me empty
  3. I
    • I please
    • I send

My, Me, and I.

It seems to be all about God.
