Where is the rain?

The lack of Rain in Indiana over the past month reminded me of this verse in Isaiah. I am also reminded that the lack of water parches the ground, our gardens, and the grass so it is with our hearts when we do not take time to allow the rain of God's word to quench our hearts.

Remarking on His complete sovereignty over His entire creation, the Lord says: “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." - (Isaiah 55:10-11 (NIV))

If all of this seems incredible for us today, imagine how awesome the power of God must have seemed to the people that lived thousands of years ago, without the scientific knowledge that we possess today. This in itself, I believe, makes a strong case for the God of the Bible to be the One and only God - the true God. Polytheism was the general religious persuasion of that time. For the Hebrew people to have simply concocted such an omnipotent Being seems highly unlikely. It is understandable that creative storytellers of old could conjure up ancient tales of great wars between the gods, and gods engaged in titanic battles with colossalmonsters of the sea. But how could any ancient author or authors possibly contrive a divine Being Whose very words - indeed, Whose very thoughts - are truth itself? This impossibility strongly suggests that the Scriptures are not merely the product of imaginative storytellers, but rather the inspired word of God.

It is this same God that offers rain...Holy Spirit Rain Down is my prayer for you. He promises when we turn our hearts to God's words and declare His Worth in their lives, He will bring the rain. For more GREAT information on Scientific Proofs of God check out: "Answers in Genesis."
