It’s Going to Rain

August 15, 2019

“Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month” Joel 2:23, NKJV.

One day while in prayer, God placed a song on my heart that had me leaping for joy:

I see the clouds forming
I feel drops of water on my head
It’s been a dry season
But that’s about to change
God has told me
It’s going to rain

It’s going to rain, my sister. What you haven’t been able to do, you will be able to do. The blessing you’ve desired to be, you will be. It’s been a dry season, but all of that is about to change. God is promising rain.

Don’t look down, don’t look around, look up, and see in the spirit, the clouds forming. Feel the drops of rain on your head. God is saying, “Be glad, children of Zion, and rejoice in Me! For I have given you the former rain moderately, and I will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.”

God is going to fill your life with good things and make you a blessing. How do I know? Because His word promises it, and He is faithful to His promises.

Prayer: Father God, yes, I receive! It’s been dry, but that’s about to change. I speak it by faith and say out of my mouth that it’s going to rain in my life. You will do what only you can do. I will see breakthrough in my finances and every area. I will see the opportunities you’ve laid before me, and I will walk through the opened doors. I will use the gifts you’ve put in me. I will walk in my purpose, and I will be a great blessing. Thank you, Father, for sending rain! Drench me in you! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Deuteronomy 8:18; Genesis 15:1; Philippians 4:19)

When You are Weak, He is Strong

August 14, 2019

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” 2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV.

As I laid my head on the kitchen table one morning, I confessed to God that I didn’t feel like praying. It wasn’t that I didn’t love Him, but I felt as though I had no energy left to press into Him like I usually do. Right there as I poured out my heart before my loving Father, He began to strengthen me.

God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. So there’s no need for us ever to pretend that we’re not weak and needy of Him. Let Him be your strength. Let Him give you the spiritual boost you need to go on.

Thank the Lord that He hears the faintest cries and He lifts us. He is a good God who is faithful to give us the grace we need right when we need it. Pour out your heart to Him and let Him renew your strength today.

When you are weak, my friend, He is strong.

Prayer: Father God, I bless you for your goodness and your faithfulness. When I don’t feel like praying, thank you that you’re not mad. You know my need, and you meet it every time. Thanks for loving me the way you do. I need you more than anything. I receive your strength right now. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
