God created the heavens and the earth by the Word of His power. He spoke life and light into being through His creative Word. He said ‘Let there be’, and it happened as He spoke.
Today, by exactly the same power, God keeps on sustaining all things, and accomplishing His eternal will of salvation. I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure’. Isaiah 46:9-10
First, the Father purposes His will. Then, the Word declares it – speaking out the Father’s purpose. Finally, the Spirit performs the Father’s will by working out every detail of His plan.
Dear friend, it is futile for people to attempt to resist God, for He always fulfils His will. Indeed before the day was, I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it? Isaiah 43:13
I’m sure you know that a wonderful Day is coming when everyone will acknowledge God’s Word. Soon and very soon, every knee will bow, and every tongue confess, the glorious name of our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
At that time, the effective operation of God’s Word will be plain for all to see. But, for now, we are called to live by faith. We have the privilege of working with God as He fulfills His Word on earth.
New King James Version (NKJV)
21 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers,
Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.
23 He brings the princes to nothing;
He makes the judges of the earth useless.
24 Scarcely shall they be planted,
Scarcely shall they be sown,
Scarcely shall their stock take root in the earth,
When He will also blow on them,
And they will wither,
And the whirlwind will take them away like stubble.
