Did you know that the Christian Bible is the best selling book of all time? It is also the most read book of all time!
Go ahead and Google it! It is even listed in the Guinness book of world records!
I find that to be incredibly fascinating, but not too hard to believe.
God inspired the authors of the Bible through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. His Word is a love letter to us, His people, showing us the way to His heart which leads us to eternal life.
His Word gives us instruction, salvation, hope and peace. In both the Old Testament and the New Testament, God’s Word points us to Jesus, who points us to God, the Father.
The Word of God is powerful! Jesus quoted it when He was tempted by satan.
Whether you are reading God’s Word, quoting God’s Word, or sharing it with someone else, you can know that God’s Word will not return empty.
Even if you don’t understand everything you are reading. Even if you are sharing it with someone and you don’t know the exact words to say. God will use His Word and He will accomplish the purpose that He desired for it.
If you aren’t doing so, ask God to help you form a habit of reading His Word every day. I pray that you will gain a greater appreciation and love for God’s Word. I pray that God’s Word will accomplish all that He intends it to accomplish in your life!
So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11 NIV
