Isaiah 55:10-11 “For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth, Making it bear and sprout, And providing seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So will My word be which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me void (useless, without result), Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”
Psalms 199:80 “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [standing firm and unchangeable].”
Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Hebrews 1:3 3 “who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,”
Do we believe the Scriptures above? If His Word cannot come back void, if His Word is forever settled in Heaven, If His Word stands forever, if His Word is upholding all things; then why would we have a moment of concern? Instead of listening to any other report, we must know without a shadow of a doubt that His Word is never coming back void. Once we get this mindset, nothing can come against us or those we are interceding for or the families and nations we are a part of!
We must gather every Scripture we need for the situations or circumstances we are in prayer about. For example: Parents dealing with prodigals can rest knowing His Word if forever settled in Heaven – Isaiah 54:13 “all of their children are taught by the Lord”, Isaiah 59:21 “Your Word and Your Spirit will not depart from their lips now and forevermore”, Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child and he will not depart”, Isaiah 44:3 “pour my Spirit on your offspring and your blessing on your descendants” and any other Word He unveils.
Decreeing these, standing on these, and hiding them in our hearts will keep us from the sin of unbelief and bolster our faith when necessary.
This same principle applies in every situation or circumstance we may encounter. We must learn to live by standing firm on His unchangeable forever settled in Heaven Holy Word.
Prayer: Thank you, most glorious Father in Heaven for Your Precious Word. God, You are faithful, we will rest in Your promises knowing all of Your promises are yes and amen!
Confession: “Amen to the glory of God!”
2 Corinthians 1:18-20 “But [as surely as] God is faithful and means what He says, our message to you is not “Yes” and “No” [at the same time]. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, by me, Silvanus, and Timothy, was not “Yes” and “No,” but has proved to be “Yes” in Him [true and faithful, the divine “Yes” affirming God’s promises]. For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] “Yes.” So through Him we say our “Amen” to the glory of God.”
