Isaiah 55: 3 &11 “ Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen and you will find life….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.”
The exhortation in verse 3 is so important to take to your heart. Hearing and listening is so important in the Kingdom of God! We can never afford to not really pay attention when God speaks – it is absolutely life giving! We cannot live without it – how precious when God communicates with us. Without the Word of God we are like starving men and women – it is our daily food.
If we do have our ears open wide then all these wonderful promises in verse 11 are guaranteed. His Word always produces fruit in our hearts – it cannot fail to accomplish what God intends it to do when He sends it out. What is more, our wonderful heavenly Father promises that His Word will prosper everywhere He sends it. So the Word of God not only feeds us, but the results of the excellency of the nourishment mean that the Word multiplies and prospers to great effect in our lives and hearts. O Lord, may my ears be always open to listen and pay attention to your Word so that the very best fruit and harvest may come from it as you have promised. Thank You Lord!
