There are many weather phenomena in nature. Hail the size of baseballs, frogs raining down and rain falling sideways during a tornado. I have never seen any of these but I have seen film of them all. But I have never heard or or seen rain falling up. You see rain is from God and it is meant to water the Earth and give us fresh water to drink. Isaiah 55:9-13 tells us this fact. Verses 9-11 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.
These are the guaranty of the promise in verses 12, 13. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap [their] hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign [that] shall not be cut off.
The problem, especially in America, is that we don't believe. We have idolized technology and or riches as well as our ability to solve our own problems.
But you must believe. Hebrews 11:6 says, But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. We are all "OK" with believing in God but that part about God rewarding them that diligently seek him is where we fall short. I think it the diligently seeking part that we balk at. We just don't have the time. But trust me when I tell you we are out of time. You need to start today to diligently seek HIM.
Lets start with a prayer!
In Jesus name I will go out with joy and I will walk in peace. Before me the whole earth will rejoice and instead of thorns a shade tree will grow. Instead of the briers of life which entangle me, a tree of healing will arise that God may be glorified in all I say or do. Lord I repent for not believing your word and I will seek you from this day forward.
God bless. See you soon.
