Rain On Me, Lord!

Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who makes the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone. – Zechariah 10:1

These verses should not be used in a “name it and claim it” manner. They are not the foundation of some prosperity gospel. But in his time, God has promised to bless us. We may have to go through rivers at flood stage, droughts that devour crops, and times of testing that remove all hope but the hope we have in Christ. Be encouraged. God will act on our behalf in his time.
