Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime, it is the Lord who sends the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone.
Do we really think about asking for rain? We do when there has not been any in a while, but what about rain in our spiritual lives? Do we ask God to send us rain and nurture the seeds that have been planeted by Him? We all need the rain for it to sprout and grow. We are not sure if it will be a soft gentle rain or a torrential downpour, but either way it will be rain and it will be needed. Remember when the storm comes that God is allowing it to happen. And as quick as it can come up and as fierce as it can get, it can also be calmed in an instant. Just trust God to get you through and look for the fruit that will come from the nourishment of the rain. It will be the type of fruit that we cannot grow on our own. Don't forget that when the Harvest comes, to give it back to God! Thank Him for the rain, and even the storm that may come your way.
