And It Shall Prosper In the Thing for Which I Sent It
Today, we come to the last part of Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV). It says 'And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.' Prosper, in this verse, means to come mightily, go over, be good, be profitable. The Message translation puts it very plainly; 'they'll complete the assignment I gave them.' We have discussed this week that every word that God speaks has an assignment. Be assured, it will happen. You have probably heard this saying before; God said it, I believe it, and that settles it. His Word is not for debate but it is meant to be followed. If we read God's Word daily, we will notice changes in the way we speak, how we act, and what we do. Why? Because our minds are being renewed by the Word of God. Remember that Romans 12:2 (NKJV) says 'And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.' God always does what He says, and He will never go against His Word. He has given us promises, and they have come to pass, and will come to pass. 1 Kings 8:56 (NKJV) says 'Blessed be the Lord, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good promise, which He promised through His servant Moses.' Jesus said in Matthew 5:18 (TPT) 'Indeed, I assure you, as long as heaven and earth endure, not even the smallest detail of the Law will be done away with until its purpose is complete.' Jesus also said in Matthew 4:4 (NKJV) 'It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' We could not survive very long just eating one meal or less a week. So, why we would only get in the Word of God on Sundays and just give our spirit man a snack? We won't survive long in this world starving our spirits. Feed your spirit by partaking of the Word of God. Notice that Jesus said that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. We must read His Word and allow it to permeate every area of our lives. Read His Word, speak His Word, and it shall prosper in the thing for which He sent it.
