With the advent of 2017 we are already in the Hebrew calendar year of 5777 and prophetic words from seasoned, trusted voices are confirming that a third great awakening has begun and God is about to impact earth at a higher level than ever before. The word of the Lord to me for this year was Zachariah 10:1. Ask the Lord for rain in the time of the latter rain. The Lord will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone. This verse challenges us to ask for more of what God has already determined is in His timing to give – rain! Rain to Israel, an agricultural society, was not a luxury it was a necessity. Without it the crops failed, the grass withered, the livestock perished and ultimately the lives of the people were at stake. Rain is synonymous with the goodness of God and in Exodus 33 when Moses asked God to show him His glory God equated it with His goodness. Let’s expect greater glory! Let’s expect God’s goodness to break through this year like never before. It’s the time of the latter rain; let’s ask for more!
