Isaiah 55:11, "So shall MY Word be that goes from MY mouth; it shall not return to ME empty, it shall accomplish MY purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it." A young boy I know became dependent upon drugs. Even in "rehab" his motivating thought was when could he get more drugs. He would tell his parents and doctors he would not stop drugs because they made him feel good. Many continued to pray for him even though it seemed like a "lost" cause. Many may have viewed him as "rain in the desert"; why does GOD let it rain in the desert where nothing will grow? Why do people "waste" GOD'S Word on "hardened hearts" where "good" will not be multiplied? Just as the rain falls to the ground and returns to the Heavens in a different form; GOD'S Word often falls on a hard and barren heart by GOD'S design to give proof of HIS fullness and mercy. It leaves people without excuse (the person who hears, and those around him) and justifies HIMSELF. GOD is watering in the most unlikely places (like rain falling on a rock or in the desert), HE is watering people with HIS Grace and making them fruitful as they return to Heaven again, in a different form being much fruit; the harvest of many Souls. GOD'S Word falls on all and it accomplishes the Whole WILL and PLEASURE OF GOD. The Word returns to GOD with DIVINE ENERGY, it is the power of GOD for our Salvation. The young man at the "Rehab" center has now found the "HIGH" of "ALL HIGHS" and it is not drugs; he takes his Bible everywhere in the center preaching to the other young people. In fact they call him, PREACHER SAM!
