Truth for Today
Zechariah 10:1 Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, grass in the field for everyone.
It rained this past week!!! In a dry spell we need rain it very badly and need some more. I know you can say Amen!
Zechariah spoke to a time of drought for the people of God. Of course it was a literal drought…but there is also a serious type of spiritual drought that makes us dry and thirsty.
We know we are in spiritual drought when our lives begin to crack under the heat of troubles.
We know we are in spiritual drought when the grass around us has disappeared under the beating sun.
We know we are in spiritual drought when He is not our life. That was the problem for God’s people. They had idols in their life. They were unfaithful to God. They place more important on personal matters rather than a living relationship with God. They needed rain and then the latter rain…the rain that really meets the need in the midst of the drought.
Father, rain down on us your mercy and your grace and show us your favor with power and strength…rain down your love O Lord and may it spill over in our life into the lives of others…IN JESUS NAME…AMEN!!!
