WATER AND THE WORD OF GOD!

Isaiah 55:6–13 NASB95
6 Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. 7 Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the Lord, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. 8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. 10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. 12 “For you will go out with joy And be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands. 13 “Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up, And instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up, And it will be a memorial to the Lord, For an everlasting sign which will not be cut off.”

GOD’S WORD REVEALS A CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURAL WORLD.

Genesis 7:11 NASB95
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.

Isaiah 55:6–11 NASB95
6 Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. 7 Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the Lord, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. 8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. 10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; 11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
ISAIAH 55:6=
B. GOD PREDICTED WHAT SCIENTISTS HAVE ONLY RECENTLY DISCOVERED ABOUT THE WATER CYCLE.
C. GOD CONNECTS THE UNSEEN SPIRITUAL WORK OF HIS WORD WITH THE PRACTICAL REALITIES OF LIFE.
JUST AS RAIN COMES THROUGH A PROCESS.
GOD’S REVELATION COMES THROUGH A PROCESS.
JUST LIVING ORGANISMS NEED WATER FOR BIOLOGICAL LIFE,
YOU NEED GOD’S WORD TO BRING SPIRITUAL LIFE.
WATER BREAKS DOWN CHEMICALS AND NUTRIENTS AND DELIVERS THOSE THROUGH THE GROUND TO FEED PLANTS AND ANIMAL LIFE.
JUST AS THE FARMER RELIES ON THE RAIN TO BREAK UP DRY GROUND SO HE CAN SOW AND HAVE A CROP,
GOD SENDS OUT HIS RELIABLE WORD TO BREAK UP HARD HEARTS AND REVEAL OUR NEED TO CALL UPON HIM.
JUST AS A CROP MUST BE HARVESTED TO NOURISH THE BODY,
GOD’S WORD MUST BE RECEIVED TO FEED THE SOUL.
JUST AS A FARMER WHO NEGLECTS TO PREPARE HIS FIELDS FOR THE RAIN SUFFERS
SO THE SINNER WHO REJECTS THE PREACHING OF THE WORD WILL BE PUNISHED.
JUST AS THOSE WHO WORK THE HARVEST WILL BE BLESSED
SO TO THOSE WHO SEEK THE LORD THROUGH HUMILITY AND FAITH WILL FIND JOY AND LIFE.
