Gifted and Governed Faith

So, shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth. It shall not return unto Me void, but shall accomplish that which I please, and shall prosper in that whereunto I have sent it (Isaiah 55:11).

God is responsible for the “mistranslated” versions just as much as the original texts – and He uses them all in His perfect timing. We see and comprehend as He sees fit.

God’s Word “out of His mouth” is pure, perfect (cf. Psalm 12:6); but its translation beyond that as well, regardless of the difference from the “original,” has been according to His determination in order to accomplish His plan and purpose!

Thus our understanding of Scripture is governed only by what and how much God reveals to us. This is demonstrated by Ephesians 2:8 and Romans 12:3 that not only faith, but how much faith anyone has, is God’s gift.
