“The Task God Gave His Word” ( Isaiah 55: 6, NEB ) by Carley Evans

“Inquire of the Lord while He is present, call upon Him while He is close at hand.”

 

God says, “Come to Me and listen to My Words, hear Me, and you shall have life: I will make a covenant with you, to love you faithfully as I loved David.” (Isaiah 55:3)

 

God reminds, “So shall the Word which comes from My mouth prevail; it shall not return to Me fruitless without accomplishing My purpose or succeeding in the task I give it. You shall indeed go out with joy and be led forth in peace.” (Isaiah 55:11-12)

 

Zechariah sings, “Praise to the God of Israel! For He has turned to His people, saved them and set them free, and has raised up a deliverer of victorious power from the house of His servant David. So He promised: age after age He proclaimed by the lips of His holy prophets, that He would deliver us from our enemies, out of the hands of all who hate us; that He would deal mercifully with our fathers, calling to mind His solemn covenant. Such was the oath He swore to our father Abraham, to rescue us from enemy hands, and grant us, free from fear, to worship Him with a holy worship, with uprightness of heart, in His presence, our whole life long.” (Luke 1:68-75)

 

Therefore, seek God while He may be found. Listen to His Word, for it does not fail in the task He has assigned.
