A Little Exercise

Read them personally and to God:

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,
so is Your word that goes out from Your mouth:
    It will not return to You empty,
but will accomplish what You desire
    and achieve the purpose for which You sent it.

Not one word has failed of all Your good promise to me.

For Your word holds true,
    and I can trust everything You do.
You love whatever is just and good;
    Your unfailing love fills the earth.
You merely spoke,
    and the heavens were created.
You breathed the word,
    and all the stars were born.
You assigned the sea its boundaries
    and locked the oceans in vast reservoirs.
