Million Dollar Rain

“My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” contends the LORD. “As the rain and snow fall from the clouds yet do not evaporate without watering the earth and yielding a crop, so My Word will not return to me empty. My Word will grow the harvest I desire.” Isaiah 55:8-11 paraphrase

When steady showers fell for two or three days toward the end of May, the old farmers called it the “million-dollar rain.” Their crops were planted and a good soaking was exactly what was needed to cause seed to germinate rapidly and get off to a good start. At harvest, farmers would reap the result of that million-dollar rain.

Ever read a verse or heard a sermon that was exactly what you needed? You may have read the verse a hundred times ? even memorized it ? but suddenly, it jumped off the page and spoke to you in a way that caused your faith to sprout. That was the Holy Spirit growing your faith by sending a million-dollar rain at just the right moment.

Have you ever witnessed to and prayed for someone for a long time, then suddenly, something spoke to his heart and he believed? A million-dollar rain shower just took place in his heart.

His Word is seed, rain, and life. The same Word will offend some and encourage others, but it always will have an effect. It will not return to God without the harvest that He desires and expects.

Seed to Plant:

Have you been painstakingly plowing and planting the Word in the same ?field? for a long time, but all you see is empty furrows? Keep working. He knows when to send the million-dollar rain.
