Rain always surprises me. I often drive to work in the morning under bright blue skies with not a hint of what is to come.
Right now, I am looking out my window, and the trees are perceptibly moving in the wind in a peculiar way that foretells a coming downpour. I’ve learned to pack my umbrella just in case.
In just a few minutes, I will pick up my phone and text my husband to let him know that cats and dogs and kitchen sinks are falling down from the sky. Heaven will open up its doors and transform the landscape.
Heaven fall down.
When a farmer plants a seed into the ground, he believes that the rain will come. The fruit of his labor will take many days to spring up, but he continues to break up the fallow ground and prepare for the harvest ahead.
Prayer is a lot like that. Every cry lifted up to heaven is like a seed planted in the ground. I bury my burdens on my knees, and then I look up to God in expectation.
Heaven fall down.
The rain of God’s mercy will wash over me soon. In the meantime, I am patiently waiting. I am hopeful. I am preparing.
The wind of God’s Spirit will perceptibly begin to move and provide hints of the refreshing shower yet to come.
His rain will transform the landscape of my life.
Beautiful fruit is on its way.
Perhaps the ground before you looks barren and lifeless right now.
Keep looking up. Your downpour is coming.
He will come like rain and refresh your life.
Let’s Talk: How are you preparing for the downpour?
My desire is to lift up holy hands and “Pray Big.” Want to join me? I’ve created a private “Pray Big” Facebook group for like-minded sisters to share their stories and surrender each one to our mountain-moving God in prayer. Let’s cry out to God together.
I am sharing “Heaven Fall Down” and joining like-minded sisters at Give Me Grace, Let us Grow, Spiritual Sundays, Faith-Filled Friday, Blessing Counters, Live Free Thursday, Grace Moments, Tell His Story, Coffee for Your Heart, Three-Word Wednesday, Intentional Tuesday, Purposeful Faith’s RaRaLinkup, Rich-Faith Rising, Testimony Tuesday, Moments of Hope, and Sharing His Beauty.
