It's time to pray for the rain of the Spirit on all the spiritual seed that has been sown! This is the time of the spring rain, and the Lord instructs us to pray to the Lord of the Harvest for His showers.
Zech.10:1 --"Ask rain from the Lord at the time of the spring rain --the Lord who makes the storm clouds; and He will give them showers of rain, vegetation in the field to each man."
As we pray to Him for the rain, He WILL GIVE THE RAIN for the seed which we have sown, and it will be "rich and plenteous"!
Isa. 30:23 - "Then He will give you rain for the seed which you will sow in the ground, and bread from the yield of the ground, and it will be rich and plenteous. On that day your liestock will graze in a roomy pasture."
This is the time.. This is the season to reap a bountiful harvest. So pray to the Lord of the Harvest! This is an appointed time for harvest. Ask the Lord to send rain to your field, and watch as He quickly answers this prayer in ways you can't even imagine.
There was a vast field --it was completely bare except for a thin freezing blanket of white frost-- and above the ground, all over this blanket were thousands of tightly furled flowers that seemed to be like crocus buds --but they were not in bud and there was no sign of life.
As I watched --A warm wind blew and the Sun rose high above the field. And suddenly, from all four corners of the vast expanse-- thousands of the most incredibly beautiful flowers of all kinds and descriptions began to break forth at a rapid rate as though in some kind of intensely lit hothouse. The flowers and plants were beautiful beyond description --I felt a prompting-- that they were 'in the image or imprint of their gardener.'
I distinctly remember seeing the most amazingly beautiful lilac and pink hyacinths --over six feet tall, and there were lilies, tall and splendid, pure and brilliant. And then the Lord showed me some strange looking plants that seemed more cactus like in their appearance, they were not beautiful as the flowers seemed, yet the Lord Jesus gazed on these with great tenderness --and I knew that they were of exceeding worth to him. He said that these were the lives and ministries that had been birthed in the hard places where no man had tended the -- that so often they had been passed by and overlooked in place of those who to the outward eye were more seemly . Yet, even as I watched --I somehow knew-- that these were the lives and ministries that the Lord Himself had intimately tended.
Slowly, he reached down and I watched as He cut the stem of one such plant and immediately great gushing waters poured out, and I felt the Lord Jesus say that these who have stood through the arid times, when there was little encouragement --when they were bare and dry-- that as they had sought their praise and approval solely from him and The Father --so in turn now, because of their faithfulness they were to be the containers and the outpourers of flood --unending floods of living waters in this end time battle that would literally water families, towns, cities and communities and minister to the dry and thirsty with rivers of life from the source of Living Water [the Spirit of God] that would never be quenched.
