God spoke His Word into a virgin's womb two thousand years ago, and He speaks His Word into our hearts today.

As you meditate on these Scriptures about God's Word, remember that they speak of Jesus, the Word Made Flesh.

your name and your word. (Ps 138:2b)

For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
