This morning as I pulled out of the driveway to head to school, raindrops were falling on my windshield. The rain had fallen for several hours, and had already covered the ground with damp refreshment, covering all signs of the dust and dirt left behind by months of hot weather. I marveled at the similarity of the refreshment God had brought to my spirit just the day before. Drops of His faithfulness had fallen on my spirit and quenched my seeking for His perfect will for my life and Jim’s.
After months of dryness in seeking out the heart of God, He has brought fresh ministry and it feels as refreshing as the first rains of Fall.
“Then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil.” Deuteronomy 11:14
Just as flowers, trees, and plants need water to grow, so do we! Our Autumn rain came in the form of a new call to minister to God’s people in the beautiful city up north in Sebastopol, Sonoma County. As the call came to Jim yesterday to pastor, and the beautiful rains came today, it was a sure sign of God’s goodness, mercy, grace and faithfulness to all of His living creation. I am so happy to be a daughter of the King, and to be serving Him all the days of my life.
God calls us to not fear, and that He will bring us rain, even when we feel dry and parched. He knows just how to refresh us, and to provide what we need to propel us forward for His Kingdom purposes!
“She does not fear bad news; she confidently trusts in the LORD to care for her.” Psalm 112:17
As rain refreshes the land, so God’s faithfulness refreshes our soul.
Is there something in you that is dry, and needs rain and refreshment? God is faithful! He will bring raindrops to your dry places and refresh you. Trust Him and do not fear: He cares for you!
