New International Version (NIV)
26 I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing.[a] I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.
What is your season today? Are you experiencing a season of drought? Are you being overcome with slanderous comments by friends and family? Are you unable to get to and fro because of fuel shortages? Are you not grateful about having just bread and some beans to eat? Are you not content with having a roof but all the utilities are off? Are you going through a season of great heaviness with dark clouds? Then that too is the season for showers. “Your strength will equal your days”( Deut. 33:25). “I will send…showers of blessing.” Notice that the word “showers” is plural.
God will send all kinds of blessings. And all His blessings go together like links in a golden chain. If He gives you saving grace, He will also give you comforting grace. God will send “showers of blessings.” Look up today, you who are dried and withered plants. Open your leaves and flowers and receive God’s heavenly watering. Last year my wife and I saw God’s word perform what we declared out of it in our life. We are living in the abundance of those blessings today. Our season is still being watered by the grace of God. Let your heart become a valley low, And God will rain on it till it will overflow.
You, O Lord, can transform my thorn into a flower. And I do want my thorn transformed into a flower. Job received sunshine after the rain, but was the rain all wasted? Job wants to know, and I want to know, if the rain is related to the sunshine. Only You can tell me–Your cross can tell me. You have crowned Your sorrow. Let this be my crown, O Lord. I will only triumph in You once I have learned the radiance of the rain.
The fruitful life seeks rain as well as sunshine The landscape, brown and dry beneath the sun, Needs but the cloud to lift it into life.
