One of man’s biggest problems is his ability to misinterpret the things God has said in his word. We sometimes want to add to his word and other times, we want to take away from his word. We see evidence of someone adding to his word, when Eve said what God supposedly said about the fruit of the tree, which is in the midst of the garden,
“Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die” (Genesis 3:3).
You see, God never mentioned anything about touching the tree, but Eve added that to original word. But more interesting than anything else is the catch phrase, “God hath said” that Eve used to validate what she told the serpent. The problem is this is not what God said. It may be close but when it comes to God’s word, close does not count for anything. God has said that “his word will not return to him void” (Isaiah 55:11). When we repeat God’s words, then we need to make sure that we do just that and not add to what he has already stated in his word because once altered, they be not his word anymore.
“As the rain and snow come down from heaven and stay upon the ground to water the earth, and cause the grain to grow and to produce seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry, so also is my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It shall accomplish all I want it to and prosper everywhere I send it” (Isaiah 55:10-11 TLB).
God says that his word will not return to him void. God says that his word will always produce fruit. God says that his word will accomplish all that he wants it to accomplish. And God says that his word will prosper everywhere he has sent it. Since God has sent us his word, then we need to repeat what God has already said. By repeating what God has already said, we return his word back to him. By returning God’s word back to him, we know that it does not return to him void, but accomplishes, prospers, and always produces fruit. When we repeat God’s word, then we need to make sure that we do just that, repeat his word and not add to what he has already stated because once altered, they be not his word anymore. God’s word has the power to create, if you could only believe. As for us, we choose to believe, we choose to believe in the power of his word, and we choose to place our faith in God, “for with God nothing shall be impossible.”
