Praying for Rain
Ask of the Lord His Rain. - Zechariah 10:1, paraphrased
We are presently praying for Australia-the people, animals and land. We are presently praying for peace across the world. Prayer is to be a continual dialog. I pray the devotional below opens your heart, soul and mind to the hope you had as a child, and the comfort and security that came with knowing you were in your father's house. If that place wasn't always pleasant, please know your True Father's house has many rooms. You will find yours. Heaven is beautiful.
God bless you as you continue on in prayer, being ever-constant in Hope.
Spring will arrive once again and blanket our land in peace like a river.
Three, maybe four. Seven, maybe eight. The timings of the Bible are written on faith. There is margin in the equation of creation that makes a place for your calculation. There is room built in to the mathematical structure of the universe that can only be filled by your decision to hope, without expiration. There remains an eternal void for the hopeless—no air there. God invites you, personally, to join the Trinity as your sole family so you blossom again; three, maybe four. God invites you to pray—seven times, maybe eight, like going up for Elijah’s rain. The promises of God are not being tested. Your faith is. Whosoever will not give up. Whosoever will overcome. Whosoever will see the promises of God. Whosoever will believe upon the Son. Whosoever will be saved spiritually, and as many times as is necessary physically until belief gets to the level God desires. The choice is yours. Zechariah 9:12 says, “Return to the stronghold [of security and prosperity], you prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will restore double your former prosperity to you.” God is beautiful and good (Zech 9:17). Rain, rain, rain (three) and then a glistening, vibrant green (four), not just for your field, but for everyone (10:1). Feed My flock. The flashing clouds and lightnings which usher in rain can be terrifying. Hope on. Face the Lord as much as is allowed, and He will reflect upon your face. The greens of your grasses will glisten once again. Do not have fickle faith—it doesn’t add up to anything.
