It is not raining where I am today, the 27th of August, as the sun rises and it is looking exceptionally nice. It is not that it was all that spectacular but more of a matter being so nice to see after a week or two of rainy days. Don’t get me wrong, I like the rain as well as the sunshine but too much of either becomes a bit disturbing.
I lived in the Philippines for awhile and went through monsoon seasons and did not find that to be disturbing at all. When in Guam, we had wet season and dry season, which I have to admit I preferred wet season over heavy monsoon. However, those seasons are like summer and winter on the mainland of the U.S.
Returning to where I currently live, we had an unusually long dry spell which has been followed up by a long wet spell. My little pond completely dried up. I learned that I had bass and catfish as well as lots of brim. I toyed with the idea of renting an excavator to essentially dredge the dried out pond out a little and put some of the fertile silt in my garden area since it had pretty much “given up the ghost” as well due to the drought. Then the rain started. The first few days it was all around me but not getting closer than a mile or two away.
Now I had already been thinking of 2nd Chronicles 7:14 back when my fish were dying, and the water was approaching “all gone” as my late wife would have put it. I had already been thinking about the somewhat different than normal weather patterns being reported all across the nation. I had already been thinking and praying for a “Great Awakening” to take place in our nation on the scale of the one which was instrumental in bringing the Unites States of America into existence. With the kakistocracy in Washington, D.C. it is no surprise that such is not yet happening nor is it a surprise that the “woke” ones are embracing the Climate Change mantra instead of acknowledging that God just might be trying to get their attention and especially the attention of those who are “awake.” After all, 2nd Chronicles 7:13-14 is addressed to the awake ones and calls us to a specified action.
My pond overfloweth:
Yes, the rain came, and it has been raining and raining … and raining. I stopped singing “Showers of Blessing” a week ago. I’m not complaining, and I do believe I am blessed, but I am carefully revisiting 2nd Chronicles 7:14 and making sure I am aligning myself with His call to action. Due, in part to Genesis 8:22 and Psalm 74, I do not fall for the Climate Change Hoax that is being perpetrated on us by the leftists. I know Who created the climate and His promises regarding it and the instructions to His people. Therefore, as I ponder 2nd Chronicles 7:13-14, I recognize that unusual weather patterns may very well be warning signals from Our Father in Heaven because we have strayed from His paths and He still loves us and wants to do something special through us, His awake ones.
2Ch 7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
14 If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
