“God’s word does not return void”.
This simple one sentence scripture has been re-sounding in my ears over and over again. “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 55:11 NIV85) His word does not return void. That’s powerful and as I look around me it saddens me to realize how little we truly believe in what God is telling us in this phrase of six simple words…
“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” (Revelation 12:11 NIV85)
So powerful! And again the question I have to ask myself is: do I truly believe that? Honestly, it seems that it’s harder said than done. God has truly been prompting my heart to start writing about what He has done in my life. (Please excuse my grammar as English is not my native language) I can’t lie, I’ve been quite intimidated by the thought of making myself vulnerable by being transparent and therefore only paper planes and a trash bag full of half written pages have come of it.
But the clock is ticking, it’s 2012 and the time is now! I will encounter difficult and joyful times as I endeavor to put my testimony into words. I will find myself in tears in some moments and in laughter during others; but this I know: that it is by the blood of the lamb, Jesus, that I have overcome!
