Have you ever been to the desert? Miles and miles of sand with no water in sight. Even the cactuses look dry. Sometime I have found that my life seems like a desert. Sometimes relationships or jobs or hope just dries up. And it seems like there is no hope. Been there? Yeah me too.
Just when I give up it seems that God shows up. I really think He was there the whole time. He said He would never leave me or forsake me. Maybe in the desert I just forgot that part. Heat will do that to a girl…
Now Elijah said to Ahab, “Go up, eat and drink, for there is the sound of the roar of an abundance of rain.” -1 Kings 18:41
If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and obediently do them, then I will give you rain in its season, and the land will yield her produce and the trees of the field bear their fruit. – Leviticus 26:3-4
The Lord will open for you His good treasure house, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow. The Lord will make you the head leader and not the tail follower; and you will be above only, and you will not be beneath, if you listen and pay attention to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am commanding you today, to observe them carefully. – Deuteronomy 28:12-13
