Showers of blessing
“I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing” (Ezekiel 34:26).
What is your season today? Are you experiencing a season of drought? If so, then it is the season for showers. Are you going through a season of great heaviness with dark clouds?
Then that too is the season for showers. “Your strength will equal your days” (Deut. 33:25). “I will send . . . showers of blessing.” Notice that the word “showers” is plural. God will send all kinds of blessings. And all His blessings go together like links in a golden chain. If He gives you saving grace, He will also give you comforting grace.
God will send “showers of blessings.” Look up today, you who are dried and withered plants. Open your leaves and flowers and receive God’s heavenly watering. C.H.S.
Let but your heart become a valley low,
And God will rain on it till it will overflow.
You, O Lord, can transform my thorn into a flower.
And I do want my thorn transformed into a flower.
Job received sunshine after the rain, but was the rain all wasted? Job wants to know, and I want to know, if the rain is related to the sunshine. Only You can tell me— Your cross can tell me.
You have crowned Your sorrow. Let this be my crown, O Lord. I will only triumph in You once I have learned the radiance of the rain. G.M.
