Let it Rain
Sing out your thanks to the Lord; sing praises to our God with a harp. He covers the heavens with clouds, provides rain for the earth, and makes the grass grow in mountain pastures.
Today is a rainy day and I can remember those can be some of the saddest days for so many people including myself. But, now that I am a child of the King I have learned to treasure rainy days. The bible tells us in Psalm we should “Sing out your thanks to the Lord”! I find myself enjoying these rainy days because God provides rain for the earth, which makes everything grow, but also it cleanses the air from unwanted germs,particles, and erosion. More importantly,it reminds me of the quiet times with Him, by hearing the soft drops calms my spirit and allows me to think about His goodness, His provision, His grace and His mercy. I go about my house singing praises to our God! It used to be said when it rains, God is crying. Well, I not really sure about that, but I know Jesus wept (John 11:35). I think back to those sad days and I like to think when I cried He cried with me. I remember feeling Him comforting me. So, if you have sad rainy days, remember that Jesus is with you and maybe He is allowing something in you to grow, to be cleansed or healed. Whatever it may be “Sing out your thanks to the Lord; sing praises to our God with a harp” and soon you will see the Son-shining through.
Let’s pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for the rain. We thank you because you know what we are in need of and You make the provision. Thank you because You send the rain to replenish, to provide growth, to remove unwanted things not just from the earth, but from our heart. Thank you for loving us that you sent the Holy Spirit to comfort us and let us know we are loved. Thank you Jesus that we can sing praises to You and we can find enjoyment in You when we say “Let it Rain”! Amen.
