I have lived in places in the midst of drought for 14 years. This last month I have been in a place that gets lots of rainfall. Almost every day it rains a bit. It is so lush and green here. It has been very refreshing for my soul. The smell of the rain, the sound of the rain, all manner of vibrant greens has been a delight for my eyes. All of my senses have been enjoying the abundance of water!
It reminds me of the mercy and grace that God pours over me. The worries and cares and concerns of ministry have been overtaken by the refreshing reminder that God only asks me to be faithful to what He has called me to. I am not responsible for the results – those are His.
He doesn’t want me to worry, to be filled with fears, or to have sleepless nights filled with anxiety. He asks me to love those He has put in my path. He has asked me to leave the worries to Him and just to be faithful to my tasks.
He showers me with His love. He gives me a task to do. He equips me. He asks me to trust in His timing.
I am filled with love for Him. I can minister to others out of the abundance of love He has for me. Just like the refreshing downpours of rain remind me of the showers of His love.
