Coffee Time with Jesus

  • The Holy Spirit: Showers that Water the Earth
    He shall come down
    like rain upon the grass before mowing,
    like showers that water the earth.
    Psalm 72:6
    The Holy Spirit is like Showers That Water the Earth. He will come upon His people like the necessary showers that give life to things on the earth. Sometimes He is like a pouring rain that drenches the earth and produces a flood. Sometimes He is like a gentle shower—a mist—that lightly sprinkles droplets upon the leaves and grass. Sometimes the ground doesn’t need a downpour; it’s already saturated. Sometimes on a hot sweltering day, you need a few rain showers to cool you off. You need a light drizzle to refresh your spirit. Let the Holy Spirit be your Shower of refreshment today.
    Holy Spirit, I’m waiting for a Rain Shower. Lately it’s been hot, and I’m exhausted. Refresh me so I can continue walking by faith.
    The Holy Spirit is like Showers That Water the Earth. Showers come when it’s been too hot; He’ll come when you’re tempted and tired. Most people stop working during showers; would this be a good time for you to get some rest? When the rain is gently falling, it’s a time to think and to enjoy the natural surroundings. Isn’t this a good time to look around, take stock of your work and prepare for the next task?
    Holy Spirit, rain on me. I need Your gentle presence to refresh me. I’ve done a lot of things, and I’m tired. I’ve got some big tasks ahead of me, and I need some rest. Holy Spirit, refresh me today. Amen.
    Go Deeper: Psalm 72:1-19
    The Holy Spirit will refresh you like a rain Shower.
