The Rain of Blessings By David Oyedepo

Having Understood what the three rains are (Please read the previous articles if you don’t know what rains is being Discussed), We will be discussing the final rain which is the rain of Blessings. Everyone wants to be blessed but are not willing to take responsibility for the blessings.
Let us now look at how to get access to the rain of blessings.
The rain of Blessings
This is the fourth type of rain and it answers also to a thirst. Not a thirst for blessings, but for God!
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
Your delight in God, your thirst for Him, releases the rain of plenty upon you. As long as it is God you’re pursuing after, you will not lack any good thing (Ps. 34:10). It is your thirst for God that opens you up to the rain of His goodies! Job said:
Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Job 22:21
David was one of the most prosperous men in the Old Testament. A closer look reveals his dedication to God as the secret behind his rise. He loved God, sir! His heart panted after God, as a thirsty hart pants after the water brooks (Ps. 42:1). He was not thirsty for goods. No! He was thirsty for God, so good came his way. In Psalm 122 :1, David declared that he was glad to go into the house of the Lord. In verses 6 – 9, he lets us into his secret winning card: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good. This speaks of commitment, dedication, devotion and addiction to God. It was at the foundation, at the base of his prosperity.
This was what established David as a prosperous man.
Many, particularly in the charismatic circle, have left off seeking God and are seeking goods. That is why goods never come to them. David sought the Lord, so he never lacked any good thing (Ps. 34:10).
When Jesus arrived in the New Testament, He incorporated the same principle into the new covenant. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:30-33
God knows you have need of good things, but to encounter His unlimited rain of blessings, you must seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness. Once you seek the kingdom of God, God then releases the showers of blessings upon you. In September 1976, I entered into a covenant of total consecration to the Lord. I told the Lord then, “You are either Lord of all or not Lord at all.” So, I turned my back on everything else, to face Him. Over twenty years have come and gone and I have not known lack! Until your Christianity enters the realm of dedication, you cannot be free from frustrations!
Just get connected to God by a genuine thirst and not even the devil can stop the flow of blessings to you. When you become addicted to kingdom pursuits, divine additions become your portion! Friends, it works! I have said countless times, in secret and public places, that I have never prayed for money. Yet, I don’t lack an abundance of it! I have found what to seek for, that brings blessings in automatically. I hunger and thirst after God, so He guarantees that I never lack the good things of life.
