One Drop of Water . . .
One drop of water is pretty insignificant here in the desert lands of the Las Vegas valley. Usually, even a light shower will evaporate before it enters the parched rock and sand landscape.
Water is vital to life, especially life in the desert. Nothing can survive without it. Many are the bones left to bleach in the blistering hot sun of the deserts of the world.
This year, after several years of drought, there have been a few steady soaking rains. Now, everything in the once barren desert is turning green.
Our nation has been going through a time of spiritual drought. The people have been barren in the things of the Spirit. The old ways have been forgotten. The Word is shut up in mouths of the few, like water held in precious cisterns for those who know where to find it.
I believe that there will be a drop of rain that will usher in a downpour. A President, an inauguration, men of God given a public forum beginning to salt the clouds of a parched and dry nation.
My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Deut. 32:2 (KJV)
It is possible that it will evaporate as it touches the hardened ground of the people’s hearts. Yet, there seems to be a slightly green tinge to the landscape. There are signs of life where they were unseen. Small cracks in the ground where the seed is beginning to respond to the Son of Righteousness in soil stirred by the winds of change.
Which the clouds do drop and distill upon man abundantly. Job 36:28 (KJV)
Clouds gather, looking dark and threatening to those who don’t know the touch of the rains of God. Yet, to those who desire to live, to those thirsting for a refreshing touch, there is a strange stirring that calls higher than this present darkness.
Drop Down . . .
Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it. Isaiah 45:8 (KJV)
One drop, then two, cooling, settling, changing, then three, and more. One drop, insignificant, almost impotent, but together, subduing even the driest stretch of humanity’s stony heart. Even the hardest flint will be worn away with the continual dripping of one drop after another.
You may have been dropping your word upon the most dry, inhospitable portion of humanity that the world has ever seen, but now you will receive your reward.
Son of man, set thy face toward the south, and drop thy word toward the south, and prophesy . . . Ezekiel 20:46 (KJV)
Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word toward the holy places, and prophesy . . ., Ezekiel 21:2 (KJV)
The Breath of God, The Wind of Heaven, is speaking to you and I, “Prophesy!” Say to the mountains, “Drop down.” Say to the hills, “Flow with milk,” Say to the Church, the House of the Lord, “Bring forth your waters,” Call to the skies, “Rain!”
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the Lord, and shall water the valley of Shittim. Joel 3:18 (KJV)
The scourging of your detractors will cease and waters will flow. Countless drops, come together, forming the rivers of Praise. The glory of the Lord shall be seen upon the face of the whole earth. One drop can make all the difference as it joins together with a multitude and speaks it’s message.
