Let It Rain, Lord!
Don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but it’s been cold and overcast here and still seems unseasonably warm for January (so far). The hype about climate change has been around for years and is almost comical. Fact is, the weather is always changing but it takes hundreds, sometimes thousands of years for the climate to change. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure our God Who created the earth, the weather, the climate … everything … knows what He’s doing when it comes to, well, everything! If we’re looking to and trusting the God of the Universe for salvation from an eternity in hell, it only makes sense we should trust Him in all things, including the weather and natural resources of the earth He created.
There’s no mountain too tall, no valley too low, no river too wide for our God! He is at work even when we can’t see it. The more you know Him, the more you know you need to know Him! Look to Him, Love Him, Trust Him … and let His grace and mercy rain down on you!
Deuteronomy 11:11-17 – “But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven: 12 A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year. 13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, 14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. 15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. 16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; 17 And then the LORD'S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.” Isaiah 45:8 - “Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.”
Song Lyrics: Is there anybody's sunshine been turned to rain? Is there anybody's blue sky been turned to gray? Is there anybody's good time turned out real bad? Is there anyone's happiness turned out sad? And I know I can't trust in the things that I see. All I know, He's at work and He's working on me. So let it rain, let it pour! Lord, I need You more and more. Let it rain, rain down on me. Every day, whatever You want; not my will but Yours, Lord. Let it rain, rain down on me! Is there anybody's mountain too tall to climb? Is there anybody's faith feel like you're running dry? Let me tell you, He's able, He's done it for me! He can make every mountain; He'll throw that mountain into the sea! Yeah, the same God Who brought the sunshine is the same One who brings the rain. Yeah, the same God Who made the sunshine is the same One who knows my name! So let it rain, rain down on me.
Not my will but yours, Lord. Let it rain!
