Psalm 72:6 says "He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass".

The Lord does, indeed, fall upon us like rain on a thirsty land. He showers us with such blessings, so many things we don't deserve. He comes not once, not twice, but abides at all times with us, providing our nourishment, our strength, our every need.

In this day of financial mess, He stands waiting, right beside each one of us, those who know Him, those who do not. He waits beside the man who has lost his job. He waits beside the woman whose family has lost their home. He sees the tears of those who are distraught. He knows the pain of those who have lost everything they thought was their security. He hears the voices say, "I don't know what we're going to do!" He knows, and He waits to hear the earnest prayer for help from Him. His Word says, "Seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened unto you, Ask and it shall be given."

There is no security outside of the Lord. The earth will quake, the Rock stands. The world's financial systems may crumble, but God's supply is never ending. There may be long lines at the food pantry, but the Bread of Life is always available. Whatever the need, God has the answer in His Hand...ready to give, if only we'd ask. We deserve nothing, and yet, He's willing to give all that He has in His storehouses for our good and well being.

Yes...He shall come down like rain. Showers of blessings await us, if only we will ask. (and then...don't forget to THANK! )
