There is the sound of the rushing of rain—
May your ears be blessed to hear it.
There is a miraculous outpouring on the horizon—
May your eyes be blessed to see it.
If you are in a season of drought, take heart.
A small cloud rises from the sea of God’s grace.
If you are in a season of plenty,
God’s grace knows no bounds.
Elijah was just as human as you are,
And God changed the whole atmosphere
Through his prayers.
Likewise, your prayers are unspeakably
Powerful and effective
Because when you are in Christ,
You are clothed with His righteousness.
May the heavens open and miracles rain down
Bringing glory to God
And blessing to many, in Jesus’ Name.

Blessing is powerful because it reframes your sense of identity into alignment with God’s vision for your life. Learn all about it my new book, The Power to Bless, releasing next week. Pre-order it today so you can get a free audiobook with it!
Today’s blessing is one that I spoke over my congregation, and I felt it an appropriate, powerful blessing to end this month. It’s rooted in the marvelous story of 1 Kings 19:1-44, a time of terrible drought. But Elijah prophesied that he heard the distant sound of rain in the middle of the famine. Life may feel dry, but God’s grace will rain down soon! And that’s the Gospel!
