Last night I dreamed I was with the body of Christ waiting with anticipation for Him to come. We were inside a building and people were prophesying to each other and encouraging each other. As the dream went on, we were outside in natural light in a place with granite boulders and brush like the chaparral where I grew up in the hills of southern California.
Then we were inside the building again, in a normal conference room, when it began to rain inside. But it wasn't normal rain. Each raindrop was filled with light. We could see thousands of light-filled drops forming on the ceiling, becoming heavy, and streaking down and splattering on people, on chairs, and on the floor. As the light-filled rain quickly became a downpour, everyone began shouting and cheering for Jesus as they were overcome by the glory of God.
I woke up to the sound of rain outside my window.
Lord, I pray You send Your rain and revive Your people to love You with all our might. As we wait on You with expectation and in one accord, let us have a tangible demonstration of Your presence. May we be a people brimming with the oil of gladness to demonstrate to a dark world that You are who You say You are, and that means there is hope.
“Be glad, O children of Zion,
and rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given the early rain for your vindication;
he has poured down for you abundant rain,
the early and the latter rain, as before.
- Joel 2:23
Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.”
- Hosea 6:3
he will give the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the later rain, that you may gather in your grain and your wine and your oil.
- Deuteronomy 11:14
