The Rain Of Righteousness By David Oyedepo

your access to the rains
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 rain of righteousness.
Consider the first type of rain,  Matthew 5:6 highlights what triggers it off:
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. So, what do you do to enjoy the rain of righteousness? You hunger and thirst for it! You cannot receive the rain of righteousness without a genuine thirst. Are you truly desirous?
But you must first yearn for the outpouring of the rain of righteousness.
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen in the sanctuary. Psalm 63:1-2
David yearned for it. He longed to see the rain of righteousness flow. Perhaps he was in a place dry of holiness, dry of God’s glory and honour. So he longed for an outpouring of the rain of righteousness.
If there’s no thirst, there’s no access. It takes your yearning desperately for the release of the rain of purity to encounter a deluge. Your strong desire is what leads to its accomplishment.
