Creek's End Family & Friends,
Rain. Beautiful, magnificent rain. I should have known it was coming. My wife washed her car, and I watered some thirsty, droopy plants. That’s a sure-fire recipe for a rainy day. So, Dianna and I take full responsibility for our recent stormy weather. We have been in a drought in one of the hottest summers I can remember. Drought, dry, barren land needs rain.
There are days when I feel the very same way. When I am physically thirsty, I can turn on the faucet in the kitchen and fill a glass. In the natural, I can satisfy the physical desire but what about spiritual thirst? How does one find spiritual satisfaction? Quite simply – we must learn to make it rain.
God’s Word includes teaching and instruction for the steps to release God’s rain. His rain is His goodness and faithfulness. Deuteronomy 32:1-4 tells us, “Listen, you heavens, and I will speak; hear, you earth, the words of my mouth. Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants. I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.”
Believers must learn to thirst for the provision, blessing and promises of God AND learn how to release it from heaven. While humanity has no control over the natural rain for it pours out on the just and unjust, believers do have the power to open the windows of heaven when it comes to His Spirit allowing God’s best to rain in our life. What about you? Do you need to make it rain today?
Here is what is happening at Creek’s End…
"THE RETURN OF THE KING" CONTINUES SUNDAY
There is an inscription on the dome of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. which few people know about. It reads, “One far-off divine event towards which the whole creation moves.” A visitor once saw that inscription and asked one of the guides what it meant. The guide hesitated for a minute and then replied, “I think it refers to the second coming of Jesus Christ!” In the past Christians took great comfort from the Lord's promise that he would return again. We can still find such comfort in this belief today. Join us Sunday for COMING SOON at 9:30 & 11:00 AM.
