God is not a man that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?" Numbers 23:19
IN JESUS TODAY!
These days we hear about wasteful spending and the squandering of resources. Many politicians are under fire for this activity because people don't like it when their tax dollars, their hard earned money, is taken and misused or when a politician flings it away with no regard for the effort it took to earn it. In the same way God doesn't like the wasteful use of what required the giving of His son's life to bring it to us. God is not a squanderer. When God gives us His word it is expected to be taken serious and to be appreciated.
THE VALUE OF HIS WORD…
God doesn't just throw out words to be nice to us it is serious business just like when you give your tax dollars it is serious business for Government spending, you are not throwing out your money to be nice, it is expected to be appreciated and properly used. Similar to this, when God gives his word he expects a return, as we read,
"So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Isaiah 55:11
Friends, the next time you do your taxes, imagine that all this hard earned money has been received and put on a shelf or flung around irresponsibly. Will we tolerate this? Absolutely not! Again, God will do all that he has said, so will we use his word properly?
Consider the word of God and the effort that it took to bring it to us and now, take it off of the shelf and begin to use it, and appreciate it. Appreciate what you have been given. God will not allow the squandering of his word. His word is truth and what we do with it is very important to him.
GOD’S WORD WILL ACCOMPLISH WHAT IT IS SENT TO DO!
