Look up today, O parched plant!

(Charles Spurgeon)

“I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26

Here is sovereign grace, “I will send down showers.” Is this not sovereign, divine mercy–for who can say, “I will send down showers,” except God? There is only one voice which can speak to the clouds, and bid them beget the rain. “Who sends down the rain upon the earth? Who scatters the showers upon the green herb? Do not I, the Lord?” 
Grace is the gift of God–and is not to be created by man. 

It is also needed grace. What would the ground do without showers? You may break the clods, you may sow your seeds–but what can you do without the rain? As absolutely needful is the divine blessing. In vain you labor, until God bestows the plenteous shower, and sends salvation down. 

Then, it is plenteous grace. “I will send down showers.” It does not say, “I will send them drops,” but “showers.” So it is with grace. If God gives a blessing, He usually gives it in such a measure that there is not room enough to receive it. Plenteous grace! Ah! we need plenteous grace . . .
  to keep us humble,
  to make us prayerful,
  to make us holy, 
  to make us zealous,
  to preserve us through this life,
  and at last to land us in Heaven! 
We cannot do without saturating showers of grace. 

Again, it is seasonable grace. “I will send down showers in season.” 
What is your season this morning? 
Is it the season of drought? Then that is the season for showers. 
Is it a season of great heaviness and black clouds? Then that is the season for showers. 
“As your days–so shall your strength be.” 

And here is a varied grace. “I will give you showers of blessing.” The word is in the plural. All kinds of blessings God will send. All God’s blessings go together, like links in a golden chain. If He gives converting grace–He will also give comforting grace. He will send “showers of blessing.” 

Look up today, O parched plant, and open your leaves and flowers for a heavenly watering!

  1. Sorry I haven’t been commenting lately, Steve. I haven’t deserted you, nor any of my other fellow bloggers … I’m going through a ‘time of drought’ at the moment. Your post this morning is perfect for me. Thank you!
