Isaiah 55:10-11 (NLT)
10 �The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry.11 It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.
These are the words of God spoken through the prophet Isaiah. God informs the people like rain and snow which causes crops to grow the same is true for His word. God�s word produces the fruit He intends to reap. His word accomplishes what it was put in place to accomplish. And God�s word will prosper everywhere it is sent.
If you have ever had a chance to share verses from the Bible with someone who is searching for God it is amazing to watch God�s word prosper in the person as they listen. I once was in Washington, D.C. teaching a class. I flagged down a taxi, got in and the driver asked me how my day was going. I said, �Good, I was up early reading my Bible lesson for the week.� The driver then said something that surprised me. He said, �I don�t know about me and God. I wish someone could explain things to me.� So as we drove to where I was working I shared verses from the Bible explaining God�s plan for Salvation. I told the taxi driver how God loved us so much He sent His son Jesus to die for our sins. I explained how the Bible says salvation is a free gift for those who accept it. About that time we pulled up in front of the building where I was working. The taxi driver turned around and looked at me and said, �I don�t know what I need to do, but I want the Jesus you were talking about.� He then asked, �Would you pray with me?� As other taxis blew their horns for his spot we prayed and he asked Jesus to be his Lord and Savior. What a blessing it was to see God�s word in action. A year later I was working in Washington, D.C. again. I flagged down a taxi, got in and to my surprise it was the driver I had met a year earlier. I asked, �How is your day going?� He said, �Great, I have Jesus in my life.� Then he looked back and said, �Hey, you are the guy who told me about Jesus.� Once again God�s word prospered as it renewed my faith in what Christ does in the lives of people.
