Word Filled Wednesday

WFWlogo

“ For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,  And do not return there,
      But water the earth,
      And make it bring forth and bud,
      That it may give seed to the sower
      And bread to the eater,”
Isaiah 55:9-12

Here in the south, spring comes early!  Not trying to brag, but this red bud tree is across the road from my house and is in full bloom.  It is gorgeous!   The warm weather and rain caused the bud to have forth a thing of beauty.

While reading this verse, my study Bible illuminated the fact that God’s Word in our lives is like this beautiful flower.  As water showers and strengthens the bud and brings forth something beautiful,  God’s Word in our lives produces life and brings forth His beauty that shines from us.  In II Corinthians 9:10 (which was cross referenced in my Bible), Paul prays a prayer of blessing to the Corinthians – “Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.”

May the beauty of spring bud and bring forth beauty to our heart and life!
