It Shall Not Return to Me Void

Isaiah 55:11 says '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.' Yesterday, we began a study of this verse, and we started with the first part, where the Lord said 'So shall My word be.' Again, notice the Lord said 'So shall My word be.' What the Lord speaks will take place. Today, we will look at 'It shall not return to me void.' The statement itself is powerful! The Lord is telling us that what He speaks, will be done, and what He speaks returns to Him with the desired results. Void means useless, ineffectual, vain, without content, empty. Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV) says 'For the word of God is living and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.' God's word is alive and powerful. His word has assignments, and those assignments get completed. His word changes us from the inside, and then we see the fruit of those changes by our words, deeds and actions. 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.' We read the Word of God and we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. When we get born again, our spirits are re-created by the Holy Spirit of God, but our minds are still carnal. The only way to change our thinking, is by the Word of God. It is imperative that we get in the Word and allow the Word of God to completely transform us. Joshua 1:8 (NKJV) says 'This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.' This was a command by the Lord to Joshua, and it was a formula for him to follow that would make his way prosperous and successful. God's Word works, and it is never empty, useless, ineffectual or vain. It will always come back to God victorious. It shall not return to Him void. It's your choice. Follow what the Word says. God is faithful, and watches over His Word to perform it.
