“When it rains, it pours” they say. This saying usually refers to something bad. When something bad happens, a deluge of bad things follows it. Some people like to say that things happen in threes. This saying refers to three consecutive events that bring misfortune. It is easy to be superstitious when bad luck appears to be following us. I used to think I had bad luck and misfortune was all I could expect. Jesus changed that. Jesus rewrote my story and He replaces the dreadful times of misery with great moments of joy and hope. He deleted the thought pattern that had me captive and He gave me faith and hope of a better day. He took that bad luck and put it away and gave me a new lease on life. With God we don’t have good luck, we have His promises and we have a covenant that assures us that we are blessed. With God when it rains, it pours but it pours blessings and breakthroughs. We need to learn to stay in faith and that is when we see avalanches of miracles and amazing events. God pours blessings into our lives and at times His mercy and grace do the pouring. It is our faith that gives us access to His blessings and we ought to develop faith in His ability to do wonderful things and to bless us. Today I want to encourage you to believe that with God when blessings rain over you they can also pour. One blessing coming into your life will be followed by showers of blessings.
Take that expression of misfortune coming in strong into your life and turn into a positive saying. Don’t expect one blessing. Expect a lifestyle of blessings. There will be rains of sad events. There will be storms and tornadoes but after the rain there is a rainbow and God will paint your life in many colors that will make you forget the darkness that came with the storm. There are blue skies behind the clouds and God is never far. He is the Sun that is always shining and it doesn’t matter how cloudy it gets in your life. His Sun is permanent and it can warm up your life even during the worst winter seasons of your life. God is permanent. His love is permanent. His power is permanent. His Word is permanent. No season and no storm can change God. No season and no storm will ever be bigger than God. God is the constant spring that gives you beautiful weather despite the heat of the enemy and the winds of opposition. The rain might be here today and you might feel like you can’t get anywhere. When it happens, you might as well stay home. Stay home in the house of the Lord. Use that time to praise Him and to get closer to Him. You are His temple. He is not going anywhere. Make the most of that time and get your worship on.
God brings His own rain after the storms of the enemy. His rain is soothing and refreshing. It is rejuvenating and restorative. His rain will make green grass grow where the enemy had put weeds of chaos. His rain makes things all new again. His rain is a blessing that keeps going. His rain will replace all that had been stolen. His rain is life. His rain is hope. His rain is a new start. His rain is a breakthrough. It is breaking through the hurt and pain and it alleviates your soul. Thank God for His rain of blessings. Thank God for giving you peace again and joy that surpasses all understanding. Expect showers of bliss and serenity. Expect your life to be filled with the power of God and with great peace. God knows how to make it rain and it is the best thing you will experience. You will see Him smile through the events that He will cause to happen in your life. You will sleep soundly. You will walk with confidence. You will experience blessings that you didn’t know existed. When it rains, it pours and God is going to take care of the next season of your life and make it an extraordinary one. Don’t let the storms fool you. God is working on your behalf and powerful things are coming your way. Stay encouraged and stay strong. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
