It's raining in the Middle East today!

LORD YOU ARE AMAZING. I have been up this morning praying over a sick friend who is doing the Lord's work overseas. She is a beautiful woman who has given her life to live in a dry, dark, destitute land. A land where the oppression is everywhere you look. In America, we are blinded by the trappings of this world. We are deceived that things are as they should be often times.

In her country the darkness is everywhere you look. In a war torn country the oppression and result of a fallen world are easy to spot. I asked God on my knees this morning to give my friend a healing rain. To wash over that child with water’s of grace, mercy and provision. To cool off the land she lives in and to give her a rainbow so she will remember his covenants and his goodness in the midst of her pain.

I had to know if God heard. I knew he did but I just wanted to KNOW for sure. He put in my mind to google the weather for her country for today. SWEET JESUS! A high of 86 F and light thunderstorm rain. Would you believe it!!! The rest of the week: hot & dry.

SWEET JESUS, I want to know more of you. I don’t want a cup Lord, Bring me a fountain. I’ll take another drink of the living water of God.
