As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 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.
It looks to me there is a bit of a contradiction…God says his Word will not return to him without achieving what God sent it for but how many times this actually doesn’t happen in life ? For example, God says to love one another like we love ourselves, how many times man doesn’t do this? Sure, man choose not to obey God but still isn’t it a contradiction when God states that his word will not return to Him without bearing fruit basically?
I am pretty sure I’m not understanding this passage properly as Scripture can’t be wrong, so please if someone could explain it to me…
thank you and God bless.
