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. “For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
As we leave the Palos Verdes Baptist Church parking lot, there is a small sign that quotes one of the verses in Isaiah...“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace"
It is a beautiful reminder that God will always be watching over us. But this verse should prompt us to ask, Why?
This joy and peace can only result when we spend time in God's Word and most importantly, obey His Word. And His Word is the Bible and Jesus Christ is the Living Word. And if we obey His Word, all of nature will explode in joy and allow us to truly revel in the glory that God had initially intended for us. The breathtaking rays of sunlight bathing the mountain peaks, the magnificent branches of a tree that reach upward to the sky, the hills that we traverse that lead us to new worlds to explore; all of these are ways that nature rejoices with us. But we can only see this if we yield to God and spend time in His Word, allowing us to be transformed and renewed by His timeless instructions. God promises that His Word will prosper all who receive it by faith.
Don't miss an opportunity to be inspired by God's Word. God will bless you with the praise of His creation!
Love and respect the Lord; seek His will in your life.
