AN ABUNDANCE OF RAIN

abundant farms

Unlike our ancestors, most of us do not farm. Our food just appears in grocery stores. We just buy it and eat it, but our ancestors grew it. They knew that without an abundance of rain their land would bear little fruit. They knew that without rain they would slowly die of starvation.

Reinventing the We’ll has a post today that tells about a drought, Heaven Pt. 88.  tells us how Elijah called upon God to end a terrible three-year drought.

“And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for [there is] a sound of abundance of rain. …And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.” I Kings 18: 41, 45

Elijah’s prophecy about an abundance of rain comes on the heels of a three-year drought followed by a major confrontation with the spiritual force behind that drought. The people’s failure to follow God and their success at following Baal had brought the drought. Elijah’s showdown with the prophets of Baal and subsequent slaying of more than 400 of them brought the end of the drought, but not all at once. Elijah had to wait a bit after killing the false prophets before the  heavens turned black. (continue here)

‘s post is about sin and our need for repentance; it seems we always have so much to repent. Wouldn’t it be better to skip the disobedience? God willing, some day we will.    🙂

Meanwhile, we must have hope.

Psalm 33:18-22 Good News Translation (GNT)

18 The Lord watches over those who obey him,
those who trust in his constant love.
19 He saves them from death;
he keeps them alive in times of famine.

20 We put our hope in the Lord;
he is our protector and our help.
21 We are glad because of him;
we trust in his holy name.

22 May your constant love be with us, Lord,
as we put our hope in you.

God’s Word tells to repent and have hope. He asks that we love Him and wait, wait in the hope of His abundance of mercy and grace.

  1. Tom, when I saw your headline I thought you were talking about the abundance of percipitation that VA has seen in the past week! 🙂 But I’m glad you dug a lot deeper than that.
