ASK FOR THE RAIN

IMG_6008“Ask the Lord for rain in the spring, for he makes the storm clouds. And he will send showers of rain so every field becomes a lush pasture.” (Zechariah 10:1, NLT)

“Pray to God for rain — it’s time for the spring rain — to God, the rainmaker, Spring thunderstorm maker, maker of grain and barley.” (Zechariah 10:1, The Message)

If you’ve been through, or are in the midst of a dry time in your life, it’s time to ask for the rain. God is in the business of reviving, restoring, and replenishing and He wants to saturate the dry ground of your life. You’ve been in your dry season long enough and it’s time for the rain to fall again.

The devil is an expert at dry seasons, he’s expert at trying to kill anything that has life to it. But God…He’s an expert in rain, He’s an expert in bringing streams into dry places, He’s an expert at causing that which you thought was dead, to spring to life again!
Husband and wife, it’s time to ask for the rain in your marriage again. Businessman, it’s time to ask for the rain over your business again. If you’re sick and discouraged, it’s time to ask for the rain over your life again. Pastor, it’s time that you ask for the rain over your congregation again. Congregation, it’s time to ask for the rain over your Pastor again and over the region that you live in.

“Ask the Lord for rain in the spring, for he makes the storm clouds. And he will send showers of rain so every field becomes a lush pasture.” Now is the time for the spring rain in your life. It may be fall in the natural but its spring time in the spiritual, ask for the rain!

Your desert season is over, God says it’s over, now ASK FOR THE RAIN!
