Showers of Blessings

In Ezekiel 34:26, God is speaking, and He says,

“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.”

In this passage, God is certainly speaking of natural rain when He talks about the showers He will send. Those are rains He promised to Israel which would water the land and cause it to increase and be 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.

God wants to bring showers of blessings into your life. Not just a blessing or two, but showers of blessings. An abundance of blessings.

You may feel like you are in a season of drought rather than experiencing showers of blessings. So over the next few devotionals, I will help you understand:

• The three ways God brings blessing into the lives of people
• The things that can cause a spiritual drought
• How you can break such a drought in your life

For today, what I want you to begin to see is God’s desire to rain blessings into your life. If you are feeling a spiritual drought, I pray God will use the coming devotionals to help you break that drought, and experience the refreshing rains of His blessing.
