Recently I had the privilege to go on a hike in this beautiful country. It was a little bit rainy that day, but the wildflowers showed their vibrant colors off boldly amidst the gray of the day. Reflecting on that day, these verses came to mind:
“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 words water the earth like rain and bring beauty to it. What a beautiful picture of how His word is never without purpose!
