Asking For The Rain By David Oyedepo

For I will pour out water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring. Isaiah 44:3
God’s will for you is that the dry places of your life become as a well-watered garden. He wants to see you “fat” and flourishing, to demonstrate His goodness in practical terms. But it will take His rainfall to accomplish that, God’s rainfall is for the thirsty. It is a basic requirement for enjoying all four kinds of rain in the kingdom of God. Without that genuine thirst, you may never encounter the showers.
The Four Kinds of Rain are:
1. The Rain of Righteousness
2. The Rain of the Spirit
3. The Rain of the Word
4. The Rain of Blessings

ASKING FOR THE RAIN
Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field. Zechariah 10:1
It is not enough to be thirsty for the rains of God, you need to ask for an outpouring upon you. It is he that asks that receives, and he that seeks that finds. You are a grass in the field, so you are entitled to a release of the showers. But you must ask for the rain, in order to get it. For instance, in Acts 4, the disciples prayed and the place where they were praying shook. They prayed down the rain of the Spirit. You must pray down the rains of God. Understand that God is eager to give showers of rain to everyone grass in the field. But you must be thirsty for the down pour, and express your thirst with a genuine call in prayer. You have access to the rains of God. Why don’t you open up right now with a genuine thirst and ask for the showers?
