I need a drink!

Wednesday, April 5, 2006 (9:13 am)

Hebrews 4:7 Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts.

We are in the midst of the latter rain season here in Israel, and boy is it ever coming down! Praise God — we need it! However, there have been several flash flood warnings near where we live in the Negev Desert this last couple of days and even right now as I write, outside our window there is a downpour like we have not seen for a long time. Even some visiting friends of ours had to leave the Dead Sea area last night because of the flood warnings. So… is it me or does that sound a bit contradictory? Floods…. in the desert!

Floods in the desert are known to occur due to the dry ground and the swiftness of the rains. The rain comes so quickly and the ground, too dry from the summer heat, can not absorb it in time. So it accumulates quickly and causes serious and sometimes life threatening, sunami-like flooding in certain areas. Wild, isn't it?

Likewise, I think our hearts are prone to becoming dry and hardened, especially because we live amongst this world of parched people! But God is bringing an outpouring of spiritual rain upon us, to nourish us and grow us. We don't want to be like that parched ground that can't soak it in. We want be soft and ready to receive His downpour, that we may be nourished and our the ground of our hearts may not miss out on the blessing!

Let's ask the Lord to touch us, to soak our hardened hearts and prepare us for the coming rain. There's so much work to be done!
