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
Seriously? Even after reading those long lists of Do’s and Don’ts, genealogical verses, widths and heights in cubic feet for building arks and sanctuary for God, number of blue, purple and scarlet pomegranates with golden balls in between them in the garments for priests, you still believe this quote to be true? Are these really making sense? You find it tough to say yes? If yes, then, this is definitely for you. Recently I have heard about two life changing testimonies over a casual conversation.
Adultery: This friend of mine got impressed when her friend doesn’t ogle at other beautiful girls when the rest of the team’s time pass is just that. There was only one guy who was different
from the rest of the men around her workplace. She was amazed at this quality of him and while checking on this he has explained why he doesn’t dare to look at girls in the same way his colleagues do. These verses act as a guardrail for him not to. “You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’ I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already
committed adultery with her in his heart.” Matthew 5: 27, 28. I have never heard of such verse to touch someone’s heart and change their life! Even most of the Christians these days would think that His standards are way too high and are not practically possible to reach. But she
was touched by what he said and her curiosity to know about the one who has established such high standard for holiness grew more and more on every passing day. That was all!!! Today she is a fervent believer of Christ!
Revelation – I can’t remember how many years have passed by since I have read this book! This takes the place of the most ignored book in my Bible as I feel really bored of it when I don’t understand what it says! After seeing changes in my college friend, her brother started probing her with lot of questions to which she has quoted some references she knew from Revelation! “Seriously you mean you read revelation?”, I
asked her in surprise. Yep, she did! She herself is fairly a new believer and it would take so much courage for someone to take that book and meditate and to quote references from
it. You know what!? It touched her brother’s heart and today he is also a strong believer. Together they are inspiring their parents now! After hearing these two divine appointments,
I could not stop believing the above quoted verse. Yes, none of His Word would return void. It would definitely establish its purpose before it returns to Him!!!I liked this quote from my
friend! What are you waiting for, now?! Just pray that God would use your time, words and life to touch others’ lives. You never know when God is going to use you and your words as divine appointments in others’ lives! Not just your word, but the way how you live according to
His standard would definitely create that divine appointment for sure, and you would be amazed when you hear testimonies like these!! Try it!!! God bless you!!
