Water in the Dry Places
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. Is.43:19
I heard a pastor speak about watching what is happening in the physical realm and you can see what is happening in the spiritual realm. From that point on I have watched. I will watch the titles of new best sellers books, the top movies, the trends and even the weather.
We drive over two very large bridges on a daily basis. Benjamin asked me why they were built since there isn't any water underneath them. For a couple of years now our area has experienced a drought. Drought exposed things that were hidden. This once lake area dry land revealed dinosaur tracks.
Our churches are packed...even turning away those who come to hear the message...and yet, our land is dry.
As I pray for the physical rain to hit our area I also pray for the spiritual rain. Rain that will soak deep...not just pour and roll down into the gutter. Spiritual rain that will go deep into the spirit and bring transformation.
How easy it is for us to be used to being feed at the tables of our churches and not go deep into the Word ourselves. How easy it is to know the Word and yet, not let it transform our lives. How easy it is for the me not to be the salt to society....a dry desert instead of a place of nourishment.
Lord I cry out for our land to be soaked in your natural rain and your spiritual rain. Continue to make me see the signs of our society around me and intercede..."thy Kingdom come". Lord begin with me!
