Here in California according to the media we are still experiencing a water shortage.  After prayer last week and speaking to the clouds and rocks, God sent us a reminder “shower” that He is still hearing us, but we need a lot more water how ever it comes.

In the Bible, The Children of Israel at times had a water shortage. You might enjoy these short words by Rod Parsley

Dig a Ditch

And the prophet said, thus says the Lord, Make this valley full of ditches. For thus says the Lord, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts. —2 Kings 3:16-17

The armies of Israel were dying of thirst when they received the prophet's words. God instructed them, through His prophet, to do something first in the natural:

Dig a ditch! It's too late to dig a ditch after the rains come. Get prepared. Stay ready. Be armed.

When God says to act, don't delay. Do exactly what He commands.

The man with the withered arm wasn't healed until he stretched forth his arm. Farmers don't expect a harvest until they sow seed. God will not send your increase until you have prepared to receive it. What will you do today to prepare to receive what God has for you?

God has something He wants to give you—so prepare for increase. If you want to make room for Him in your life, you have to dig a ditch.

Jesus, I want to receive all you have for me.
I am digging a ditch, preparing a place for all You have for me.
I am ready, Lord.
 Send Your living water. Amen.

  2. Your message is really resonating with me, Hazel. When you wrote: "God has something He wants to give you—so prepare for increase" - it spoke directly to my spirit - I needed this. Thank you!
