The Lord will pour out His blessings in abundance upon you - Bro. T. Stephen
I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Isaiah 44:3,4 “For I will pour water on him that is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground: I will pour my spirit on your seed, and my blessing on your offspring: And they shall spring up [as] among the grass, as willows by the water courses.”
From the above words we come to understand that just as plants and trees planted by water-courses, and in well-watered fields, grow and flourish, so will the children of God grow in virtue, hope, piety, and zeal. This is the desire of God regarding His children. So God says, For I will pour water, which means that God will use floods, rivers, streams, and waters, to irrigate and fertilize plants and trees. These water resources are often referred in the Bible as the Holy Spirit. God wants us to grow rich in Him and this needs the Holy Spirit to motivate, to encourage and thus develop our spiritual life in the Lord. The Spirit of God denotes divine blessings. This divine blessing is absolutely needful, until God who is plenteous showers upon you. Then, it is plenteous grace.
Most of God’s children have grown dry and parched, unfit for plantation hence God wants to pour His spirit, upon all those who are thirsty and are in need of water for irrigation. God refers to the dry burning sandy desert where waters would be made to burst out in copious streams. The sense is, that God would bestow blessings upon them in a marvellous, manner as if floods of waters were made to descend on the dry, parched, and desolated earth. It means here that the spiritual influences which would descend on the afflicted, desolate, comfortless, and exiled people would be like torrents of rain poured on the thirsty earth.
The Holy Spirit will come upon you like rain upon the grass, and as showers that water the earth. The Holy Spirit represents all the blessings of God. This God spoke to the Jews who were more interested in the carnal things of this world to which they were too much addicted. And when they are blessed by God, they shall increase and flourish like grass, and those herbs and plants which grow up in the midst of it. The blessing of God upon the Jews shall be so remarkable that many of the Gentiles shall join themselves unto them, and accept Jehovah for their God, and own themselves for his people. God Promises to do a new thing for His children who totally depend upon Him. And now it shall spring forth. God says, I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. God promises to pour His spirit upon all flesh, your sons and daughters, your young men and old men on your men servants and maidservants.
God wants to fill you with His divine Blessings. Are you willing to receive from Him the Holy Spirit? Then you will receive double fold blessings. Your sickness will be healed. Your Business will flourish like the trees planted by the rivers side. They will bring forth fruit in its season. In case your life has become too dry and parched, because of huge debts, and you are stuck in life, not able to move any further, the Lord will pour out His blessings in abundance upon you, and upon your children. Don’t lose hope, in yourself and in God. He will grant strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Today the Lord will perform a miracle for you. Receive the Holy Spirit and you shall be blessed. The Lord says, He will guide you continually and satisfy your souls in drought. He will strengthen your bones. You shall be like a well-watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord for teaching us through this message the importance of receiving the Holy Spirit. Pour upon us the water and quench our thirst and also help us to grow rich and flourishing. That we may have a plenteous yield and that our barns will be full. By dwelling in us allow the Holy Spirit to help us live a righteous and faithful life. May the Holy Spirit comfort us and support us particularly in times of trial.
