Nuances of Intention from the book of Isaiah

Because of Grace, we have assurances of our place in His Plan from the book of Isaiah:

“It is the same with {God’s} word. I, {God} send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” Isaiah 55:11 (NLT)

 

Notice the intentionality of His Plan from New Life Version translation

“My Word which goes from My mouth will not return to Me empty. It will do what I want it to do, and will carry out My plan well. Isaiah 55:11 (NLV) italics added

 

…and the declaration of His Plan from The Voice translation

“So it is when I {God} declare something. My word will go out and not return to Me empty, But it will do what I  {God} wanted; it will accomplish what I {God} determined.” Isaiah 55:11 (The Voice translation) italics added

 

Because of Grace, we are invited to His Plan.

What verse(s) remind you of His Plan/His Grace?
