Monday's Message of Hope

Rain and Snow!
Monday, October 24, 2022 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

Snow gently falls to the ground as I write this week’s message of hope, reminding me of a favorite prophecy found in Isaiah:

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
(Isaiah 55: 10–11, NKJV)

What an incredible prophetic word regarding the Word of the Lord! According to the prophet, God speaks a word and it shall come to pass. Not if I do all the right things. Not if my boss does the right things. Not if my spouse or my children or my parents or my coworkers or the stranger across the street all do the right things. No!

Isaiah prophesied that the purposes of rain and snow include watering the earth and causing the trees and flowers and the crops in the field to flourish. Rain and snow don’t wonder if they are doing the right thing when they fall to the earth. They don’t fret and stew about how long they have to wait to see any results. They fall to the ground and complete their purpose.

God’s word follows the same logic. He speaks the word. The word goes forth carrying the purposes of God. It arrives at the appointed destination, accomplishes God’s purposes, and produces his results. Every time, all the time.

So the question is—What happens with our words? Do they accomplish what we want them to? Or do we see negative results because of what we speak?

As believers, we are sons of God, and when our words line up with God’s words, we can have a different outcome than what we have experienced in the past. Just like the rain and snow falling to the ground, we can see his purposes and results in our lives. Can you imagine the miracles, the answers to prayer, the wonderful testimonies we will see and hear? Let’s not wait another moment for our words to line up with our most Excellent God.

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Which of God’s purposes and results do you want to see in your life?
  • What can snow and rain show you about your own spiritual walk?
  • How will this change your prayer life?

Have a hope-filled week enjoying the purposes and results of God’s word!
