God’s Word: Piercing to the Heart

isaiah 55

Do you ever experience a divine intervention? You know, when you hear a sermon or a Bible study explained, and the Holy Spirit just hits you straight in the heart with the truth He has for you?

Sometimes, the message wasn’t even heading in the direction for which it pierces our soul. The passage could be on tithing, to which we become overwhelmed by the love of God to walk with us so intimately. (This is actually how a friend of mine accepted Christ as Savior!)

A similar thing happened to me just the other day (read about it here).

Friends, let’s meditate on this today: How incredible is God’s Word! To speak so directly and personally and intimately to our hearts; to transform and shape our minds; to encourage and discipline our motives… this is the Word of God!

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” This is the  Lord ’s declaration. “For as heaven is higher than earth,  so My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return there without saturating the earth and making it germinate and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat,  so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.”  You will indeed go out with joy and be peacefully guided; the mountains and the hills will break into singing before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. (Isaiah 55:8-12 HCSB)
