Showers of Blessings: His Will in the Earth

Lady Debra Rankin 

 "I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing." Ezekiel 34:26 In this passage, God is speaking of natural rain when He talks about the showers He will send. Those are the rains He promised to Israel which would water the land and cause it to increase, become fruitful and bring an abundant harvest. But, more than that, when God says there will be showers of blessing, He is talking about bringing blessings into the lives of His people. The rain is symbolic of more than just the rain that falls to the earth. It symbolizes the good things that God wants to bring into the lives of those who serve Him. 

 In Matthew 6:10 Jesus said that we should pray “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven”. He was speaking of what we call reciprocity (an exchange of one thing for another). If the earth’s will is to inflict sickness, disease, and poverty on us, heaven’s will is to exchange it for healing, wholeness and prosperity upon us. Therefore when we pray as instructed, the result is His will in earth as it is in heaven. Sickness, poverty and disease (whether physically or mentally) have never been the will of God in the earth: though it happens, we have the weapons to defeat it. 

 In Isaiah 55:11, God says “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it." God is saying that, in the same way rain brings blessing when it waters the earth (causing it to bring a harvest and fruitfulness to the land), so does God's spiritual rain (His word) bring fruitfulness and revival to our lives. The effect of His Word, when He speaks it into our life and into our heart, is the same effect that rain has when it soaks the earth. His Word penetrates our hearts to condition us, to transform our thinking so that we can soak up His showers of blessings, which is His will in the earth. 

 God wants to send showers of blessings into your life from heaven. Not just a blessing or two, but showers of blessings: an abundance of blessings. So today, I want you to begin to see is God's desire to rain blessings into your life. But if you are still having problems receiving this word or if you’re feeling spiritual drought, I would like to offer a prayer that one of my sisters shared with our family. 

 I use my FAITH as if it were a seed. When I speak to a problem and believe that those things that I say are going to come to pass, I shall have the things that I say. It may not look like anything is happening, but the seed of my FAITH has entered in and is doing its job well. When I align my words in agreement with the Word of God, whatever I am speaking to must obey my commands. My FAITH is a servant to me and it is my duty to use it to bring forth the blessings of the kingdom into the earth. 

Even before God spoke the universe into existence, He had already planned Showers of Blessing for your life: It is His Will in the Earth.
