Lily, a Bible translator, was flying home to her country when she was detained at the airport. Her mobile phone was searched, and when the officials found an audio copy of the New Testament on it, they confiscated the phone and questioned her for two hours. At one point they asked her to play the Scripture app, which happened to be set at Matthew 7:1–2: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Hearing these words in his own language, one of the officers turned pale. Later, she was released and no further action was taken.

We don’t know what happened in that official’s heart at the airport, but we know that God’s word accomplishes what He desires (see Isaiah 55:11). Isaiah prophesied these words of hope to God’s people in exile, assuring them that even as the rain and snow make the earth bud and grow, so too does God’s word achieve His purposes (vv. 10–11).   

As those who follow Christ, we can read this passage to bolster our confidence in God. We may feel that we’re facing unyielding circumstances, such as Lily with the airport officials, but we can trust that God is working through His word, even when we don’t see the final outcome.

Welcome to today's encouragement from the daily planning today's reading titled when God speaks was written by Amy Boucher pie Lily, a Bible translator was flying home to her country when she was detained at the airport.

Her mobile phone was searched, and when the officials found an ideal copy of the New Testament on it. They confiscated the phone and questioned her for two hours at one point they asked her to play the Scripture app which happened to be set at Matthew chapter 7 verses one into do not judge, or you too will be judged.

For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and without measure you use, it will be measured to you. Hearing these words in his own language.

One of the officers turned pale.

Later she was released and no further action was taken. We don't know what happened and that officials hard at the airport but we know that according to Isaiah 5511, the word that goes out from God's mouth accomplishes what he desires.

Isaiah prophesies these words of hope to God's people in exile, assuring them that even as the rain and snow make the earth and grow. So, to what goes out from his mouth achieves his purposes, we can read this passage to bolster our confidence in God when we're facing unyielding circumstances, such as Lily with the airport officials. We trust that God is working even when we don't see the final outcome. Today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Isaiah chapter 55 verses 10 through 13 as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bad and flourish so that it yields seed for the seller and bread for the eater so is my word that goes out from my mouth.

It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it you will go out in joy and be led forth in peace. The mountains and the hills will burst into song before you and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thorn bush will grow the Juniper and instead of the briars, the myrtle will grow. This will be for the Lord's we know, for an everlasting sign that will endure forever. Let's pray thank you Lord for the power of your word and the knowledge that whatever comes from your mouth will accomplish its purpose.

Thank you for the gift of Scripture, the way it still touches people's lives today and help us in our effort to point people to you.

Help us to handle your words with love and care so that we can stand before you someday can hear you say well done good and faithful servant in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
