WORD FOCUS: GOD IS RAINING BLESSING ON YOU
TEXT: Deuteronomy 20:12 “And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:..”
In the Bible, rain usually speaks of blessings. Even today, Israelis thank God when it rains because they know that when He gives them rain, their blessings will be plentiful. Their cattle will feed in large green pastures and eat cured, winnowed fodder. Also, when they see rivers and streams of water flowing from their mountains and hills (Isa 30:23–25), they know that times of refreshing have come. Likewise, you can expect God to rain His blessings on you and bless the work of your hands. Then, you will come to a place where you will “lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow”. In fact, Jesus wants you to know that this is a blessing which He died to give you because when He died, He did not even have a tomb of His own. He was laid in a borrowed tomb, so that you can have the power to lend.
Indeed, every day as His beloved we continue to see God pouring His blessings of provision and increase on us, and we thank Him for all the good things that are happening to us. There is nothing you can do about the rain but to let it fall. So just expect God to rain His blessings on you! Let them fall! Obviously, you will be blessed with more than enough, so that with your needs and your family’s needs more than met, you can be a blessing to others too! That is the purpose of the rain but, let us remember these things in Isa. 33:15-16 what the Lord desires from the righteous think through them.
