This is so poignant. Oftentimes when I’m searching for something to post, it will just fall right in my lap. Such is the case with this particular post. I went into one of my email accounts and noticed that my baby sister had sent me this video with the song by Dwayne Woods, “Let Go & Let God”. This is one of the songs that I love and have sung over and over again in my head and heart. The next email was from my oldest sister. She had sent me the WORD of The Day from Joel & Victoria Olsten. If you really take a look at the message in each, they go hand in hand. My sisters live in two separate cities and are going to be surprised that they collectively helped to drive home the message that someone is meant to see today. Enjoy your day and BE BLESSED.
The End of Your Drought
“You, O God, sent a plentiful rain…”
(Psalm 68:9, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Every person goes through times of drought, or dry seasons, when we don’t see the changes we hoped for. We’ve got big dreams, we’re standing on God’s promises, but things stay the same. It’s dry and barren. Maybe you are blessed in one area and in a drought in another. It’s easy to think, “This is the way it’s always going to be. I’ll always have this struggle.” No, in 2014 that drought is coming to an end. Any area of brokenness, dryness, loneliness, every empty place, if you will stay in faith, God is going to rain down favor, healing, and restoration.
We declare that this year, you are going to see an abundance of rain! Every drought is only temporary. That dry season is not going to last forever. Struggle and lack is not your destiny. It’s temporary. Rain is headed your way! Declare it by faith, “Father, thank You that the drought is ending and the rain is coming; and in 2014, I will see an abundance of Your goodness in my life!”
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for Your refreshing rain on the dry places in my life. Thank You for raining down provision, blessing, hope, wisdom, joy and peace. Give me strength to stand strong in You as Your plan unfolds for my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
