Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12 NASB)
The words of God are not careless, thoughtless, half hearted words…
Gods words completely unlike our words, which are often thought-less, care-less, half-hearted, and more often than we’d like to imagine horrible, vindictive, and unloving and the list could go on and on; His words are thoughtful, careful, full of heart, truthful, kind, purposeful, genuine and true all the time!
When I read that sentence… ‘He is watching over his word to perform it’ it suddenly clicked in a new way just how much he cares for us. He even nurtures his words to us, over us and for us.
I imagine him nursing his words into fruition and that speaks to me deeply of how much he also does not take his words and promises lightly…
There is a promise from him there to us that he is watching over his word to perform it. I also see a picture of him weaving His words into life. His words are alive, active, moving, creating, forming, and they are a form of seed that will come to life and grow into what the seed has been designed by God to be.
What is the promise for your situation? What is the word if the Lord to you?
Speak His word over yourself, your families, illnesses, sorrows, and needs and keep very closely in your mind that He is watching over His words to perform them!
