Praise God! In this chapter, God said, "His Word will never return to Him void." That simply means, It will never return empty handed or in vain. Most of us understand that everything in the Word of God is profitable. However, I draw your attention to the words, "goeth forth". The Word that doesn't return void is the Word that 'goeth forth'. The Word that is profitable is the Word that is 'spoken' out of our mouth. God's Word doesn't help us if it stays on our bookshelves. God's Word doesn't accomplish what God wants it to if we don't speak it. I realize this article may be read by hundreds of preachers; however, I am not referring to preaching in this article. If the only spoken Word in our lives is the Word we preach, then we have miserably failed. Yes, we need to study, read, meditate, share and preach the Word. Yet, I am stating that we need to literally speak the Word out loud. We need to verbalize it over and over again. Not only from our pulpits, but over every situation in our own lives. If we can speak the Word to others, why can't we speak it unto ourselves? This is how our faith grows. This is how we make it through the fire. The Bible states,(Romans 10:17). So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. God commanded Israel; Isaiah 59:21, As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and forever. God's Word should never depart out of our mouth. We should always be ready to speak the Word to others, but also into our own lives. • Jesus spoke the Word and was able to overcome Satan (Matthew 4) • David spoke the Word into his own life on many occasions and was restored. In fact the Bible states, "David often encouraged himself in the Lord." (1 Samuel 30:6) THERE IS A SCRIPTURE FOR EVERY TRIAL YOU GO THROUGH. FIND IT AND SPEAK IT OUT LOUD TO YOURSELF. SPEAK IT TO YOUR FAMILY. SPEAK IT UNTIL YOU BELIEVE IT. WHEN YOU SPEAK GOD'S WORD INTO YOUR OWN LIFE, YOU REMOVE YOURSELF FROM YOUR EARTHLY DIMENSION AND INTO GOD'S ETERNAL DIMENSIONS. YOU SPEAK THOUGHTS THAT ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN YOUR THOUGHTS AND YOU DECLARE WAYS THAT ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN YOUR WAYS. GOD'S SPOKEN WORD WILL NEVER RETURN VOID.
