Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain... (Zechariah 10:1, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In scripture, rain represents Gods favor. This verse is telling us to ask for rain even though its raining. What does that mean? You might think, If its raining, it doesnt seem like youd need to ask for it. But God is saying, My favor is available to you, but youre not going to receive it unless you ask.
Right now, God is showering down blessings, healing, promotion and good ideas. Its raining favor. But, we have to do our part to get our words in line with what God wants to do. We have to ask for that favor. We have to call it in if we are going to experience it. We have to release our faith with our words.
This is a great day to be alive! God is pouring out His favor like no other time in history. Right now, its raining increase. Its raining new ideas. Its raining promotion. Dont let it pass you by. Start declaring it for yourself, I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am favored. I am healthy. I am free. Ask for rain in this time of rain and see His blessing and provision in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your grace, mercy and favor. Right now, I ask for rain in the time of rain. I ask for increase of Your favor and blessing. Use me to be a blessing to others everywhere I go in Jesus name. Amen.
The principle of appropriation is critical to understanding our faith. Salvation is an appropriation of what god has already accomplished for us. Good word from Joel.
