While on vacation this summer, we saw some incredible waterfalls in Rocky Mountain National Park. As I watched the water rush down the rocks and heard the thunder of the rapids, I was thinking about the path of each individual water molecule. Each molecule found its way down the waterfall, adding it’s own little part to the whole.
Then, I thought of how God’s word is like a waterfall. The LORD says, …
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10-11).
Every portion of God’s word is like a water molecule. As it goes out (in print, in conversation, on the internet, etc., …) it will accomplish exactly what God intends for it to accomplish, adding it’s little part to the whole of human history.
