God's Plentiful Rain

Psalm 68:6-10 says,

God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.  O God, when You went out before Your people, when You marched through the wilderness, the earth shook; the heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God; Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.  You, O God, sent a plentiful rain, whereby You confirmed Your inheritance, when it was weary.  Your congregation dwelt in it; You, O God, provided from Your goodness for the poor.

When you read various Bible commentators, you will find they agree that this refers to a tremendous rain.  The language the psalmist uses refers back to the manna God provided for His children as they wandered in the wilderness.

God sustained them supernaturally.  He gave them supernatural provision.  He brought them out of bondage into prosperity, and He sent a plentiful rain symbolizing His extravagant blessing on their life.

God, out of His goodness, met the needs of those who previously had been poor.  And in the same way, He pours blessings into our life.  He sustains us, He takes care of us, and He meets our needs.

Take time today to praise Him for His provision and blessing in your life.

Now, if there is a drought in your life in any of these areas, there is a reason for it.  In the next few devotionals, I want to talk to you about some potential causes for that drought, and suggest some things you can do to cause the drought to break and bring the rain of God's blessing to fall in your life once again.
