Are you a drinker? Huh? What are you drinking? If it’s not the Rain of Heaven, it may be time to give it a try…
Hey, do you remember the Aladdin movie? Who could forget it? The song that goes…
A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up here
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you
Now I’m in a whole new world with you…
This is what the Lord was trying to communicate to the Children of Israel. The Lord was saying, “Oh, you worked so hard in Egypt! I know it was a sweaty life, but where I’m taking you is a place that is so incredible! It’s going to be a whole new world! Don’t let anyone tell you it’s not real. When you finally see it you’ll look back and remember what I told you, for I will be there with you!”
Where the Lord is taking us in the Spirit is not a place of “sweat-ness”, but really a place of “sweet-ness”. Our number one job won’t be to WORK-WORK-WORK, but it will be DRINK-DRINK-DRINK! Notice what God says: “It is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven”. [Deuteronomy 11:11 KJV]. We must be those who drink-in the rain of Heaven! Why? Truly it is a preview of what we will be doing in Heaven! In Heaven we will be drinking-in the Goodness of God, the Mercy of God! Oh, it’s going to be a whole new world!! He will even teach us His ways [Isaiah 2:3], and we’ll be drinking that in! Why is this important? Remember Jesus talked about the rich man and Lazarus? The rich man went to hell when he died and was begging for just a sip of water, but it was impossible. Could it be that this lesson of Drinking-In the Rain of Heaven is so important now, because it demonstrates to God that we are truly desiring to drink-in His Love and Presence when we die and spend all eternity with Him.
Are you drinking?
What are you drinking?
If it’s not the Rain of Heaven, it’s time to receive today!
PRAY THIS PRAYER:
“Lord, open the windows of Heaven and pour out the Blessing of refreshing for me! Let Your mercy come down! Let Your Spirit be poured out on me today! Let the parched areas of my life receive a down-pour! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
