"Holy Spirit Rain Down." I cannot listen to this song or sing it without tears raining down my face. Such powerful, beautiful words and music by Russell Fragar. Would you rather be in a flood or a drought?
You'd probably answer, like me, NEITHER! There are terrible things about
both. Floods and droughts are dangerous, destructive and difficult. The
human body is 60% water and human blood is 92% water. We must have water to live, without it we will die.
The Bible says in Psalm 32:4 "For day and night thy hand was heavy upon
me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah." The
psalmist sounds like he's in a desperate place. I've lived through
droughts, physical and spiritual. I hate the "dry" feeling, swiveled up
without any liquid in my veins, dehydrated. Do you remember a drought in
I've been in some flash floods and seen some rising water on tv. The
thing about a flood is you can get out of its way, move to higher ground
or get in a boat. As I listen to Holy Spirit Rain Down, I don't want
the raining down of his Holy Spirit to stop! It's such a sweet Presence
like a cool glass of water when you're parched and thirsty. Isn't it
amazing that we can't produce water? God has to provide it or we don't get it. Water cleanses, refreshes and satisfies just like the Holy
Spirit. We should be begging for it to rain down on us and in us and
Let's close up our umbrellas we're shielding ourselves with and let His
Holiness rain down! Think about this...the surest place to get rained on
is inside the house, His House, the church.
Praying for rain,
