Verse 3. of this chapter contains a mighty promise to us from God.
3. For I will pour water upon him who is thirsty and floods upon the dry ground. I will pour my spirit upon your seed and my blessing upon your offspring.
We have to be thirsty for the word of God, you know the feeling when we are dry and we seemed to have hit a brick wall in the word of God.
It is times like this that we are really thirsty for an understanding of the scriptures. And this is the water that God says he will pour out. Not just a drop here and there but a flood on our dry ground.
Ever been hot and wanting the cool rain, this is not to be compared to the pouring and the flood. There is no limit to what God can do in our lives, neither the pouring or the flooding can stop.
We have areas in our lives that we have not allowed the Holy Spirit to touch. Time for us to give him permission to open these up. Then this refreshing outpouring will begin. You see we have areas that we do not think that need to be touched. who said so? only our human nature will keep them closed.
Notice there is a blessing for our offspring as well. We owe it to our children and their children to say Holy Spirit I am giving you those things in my life that do not line up with the word of God. Want to be drenched from above? try it and you will never be the same again! Amen.
It is a worldly saying to keep your cool, no better place than the cooling water from heaven that will become a flood.
