Rain is a good thing

Often people complain about rain. They don’t want to get wet, they hate the gloomy weather. They instead just want constant sunshine. Unfortunately this isn’t a good thing.

Let’s imagine it was 365 sunshine. I bet there would be more people sun burnt, the grass would wither, the trees would die, some animals would probably die, crops wouldn’t grow… but people would be happy. I mean that is until it drastically effected their daily lives.

Seasons of rain is important. Not just physically but spiritually. Rain brings growth. The grass is greener, flowers brighter, and the depth of faith deeper.

When in life, we experience seasons of rain in our spiritual life, it makes us stand firmer on solid ground. The story of the man who builds his house on stone.

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”-Matthew 7:24-27

Here Jesus reminds us that if we remain solid on Him,if we build our lives on Him, our lives will not fail. However, if we build our live on the sand, when the rain comes, we’re going to fail.

The rains will come. We all have different seasons of rain as well, some of us experience floods while others only get a mist, but we all will experience rain at some point in our life.

Rain is a good thing. It makes things beautiful, it makes growth occur,and it makes us rely more on God.

So let the rain come, times may get tough, but rely on Jesus, build your life on Him.
