Showers of Blessing

“'I will make a covenant of peace with my people and drive away the dangerous animals from the land. Then they will be able to camp safely in the wildest places and sleep in the woods without fear. I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill. And in the proper season I will send the showers they need. There will be showers of blessing.'" Ezekiel 34:25-26NLT

The note at the bottom of the page in my Bible states this about the word "Peace" or in Hebrew "shalom"--Peace is more than absence of hostility; it is fullness of life enjoyed in complete security.

Is that what you are seeking? Is that what you need in your life? I know I do. I seek it every day. And what humbles me is that my Father is willing to give it to me every single day. His everlasting peace--just for me--just for the asking. The peace that withstands ALL understanding. Isn't that amazing?!

"Showers of blessing"--Blessing, the power of life promised to God's people through Abraham, is beautifully symbolized in the life-giving effects of rain.

Have you ever just stood in the rain and let the cleansing, cool water droplets just run over your skin. Felt the stress, the ugliness of the day, the conflict in your soul--washed away?

God wants this for you. He wants to have you in a relationship with Him so that He can give you peace and wash you with showers of blessing. Do you?

All you need to do is ask. Sincerely and humbly. Get your heart and spirit right. Then ask. Can you? Will you?
