Drought or Flood?
Sometimes the raindrops come in quick succession. Sometimes there is a flood. But sometimes it feels like a drought, that the heavens are closed up, that there is no evidence of God's hand changing our prodigals and moving them to salvation.
But they're not. The heavens are not closed up! God is working!
Let me give you some scriptures on which to stand.
Job 42:1-2 says, "Then Job answered the LORD and said: 'I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.' "
"So shall they fear The name of the LORD from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him" (Isaiah 59:19).
"The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand" (Deuteronomy 28:12).
" 'Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness; Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together. I, the LORD, have created it' " (Isaiah 45:8).
Keep praying! God is working! He promised!
