Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater.”
- Do you ever ask God why? Are you ever left uncertain? Do you question your circumstances?
- What do verses 8 & 9 tell you about trying to understand God?
- God has a purpose! What is His purpose for the snow and rain?
- Like the snow and rain, how does Isaiah explain the purpose of the word that goes out from the mouth of God?
- How do you think that God uses His word to accomplish His purposes (see also 2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 10:17).
- His thoughts and purposes are so far beyond the comprehension of you and I. But, you can be certain, He has a purpose for you & for your life (Jeremiah 29:11). You and where you are now in your life is not an accident (Romans 8:28)! Does this passage make you consider your purpose in a new way? Does it help you to trust in the sovereignty of God?
Truts God – He sees the whole picture! I will be praying for you!
