It's been raining for the last hour... cats and dogs~ hard and drenching. We've sure needed it in this area lately. Our hay crops are low and gardens and yards have been thirsty for a deep drink.
I've been studying rain in the bible this morning and wanted to share some general scriptures that interested me. Hope you enjoy~
Seven days from now I will make the rains pour down on the earth. And it will rain for forty days and forty nights, until I have wiped from the earth all the living things I have created.”
The rain continued to fall for forty days and forty nights.
I will send you the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees of the field will produce their fruit.
If he holds back the rain, the earth becomes a desert.If he releases the waters, they flood the earth.
He made the laws for the rain and laid out a path for the lightning.
He covers the heavens with clouds,provides rain for the earth,and makes the grass grow in mountain pastures.
Any nation in the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, will have no rain.
Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.
