Hosea 6:3 (KJV), “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth”.

Hosea 6:3 (KJV), “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth”. 

“Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head” is a song written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach for the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song. 

Recently, as I walked from my car to the front doors of the church, I felt raindrops falling upon my head, ever so gently. That night in church, the Pastor stood up and said, “This week I have felt gentle raindrops from God, fall upon my head.” 

In our text for today, God pours out His rain over His people, however the rain this verse is taking about is Spiritual rain. God brings upon His people, rain from heaven, in the natural and in the Spiritual.  

In the natural, rain brings refreshing, it washes and makes clean, and then when the rain has fallen on the earth, it leaves a freshness and beautiful aroma. God’s rain from the Holy Spirit brings healing, restoration, cleansing and a freshness in our zeal for God that fills us with the beautiful aroma of Jesus.

Proverbs 16:15 (KJV), “In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favor is as a cloud of the latter rain”. 

My friend, today let the raindrops of God’s healing, His restoring and cleansing love, and wash over your life in a fresh and powerful way. May the raindrops of heaven fall upon you.

There is a beautiful song from Hillsong Australia called, ‘Holy Spirit rain down’ with these wonderful lyrics:

Holy Spirit rain down, rain down. Oh Comforter and Friend,
How we need Your touch again. Holy Spirit rain down, rain down,
Let Your power fall. Let Your voice be heard. Come and change our hearts,

As we stand on Your word, Holy Spirit rain down.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
