Praise Report

Praise Report

After my morning shift today, I took a short nap, got ready, and went out to buy some stuff. It has been raining for a couple of days now and my umbrella’s missing. Everyone went out before I left and the only umbrella I could find is broken. I had no choice but to use it.

I noticed that every time it would pour heavily, I was already inside a building downtown. I would automatically say “Thank You, Lord” every time. I am still awed thinking about it. God knew the umbrella I brought was not sturdy enough to protect me from heavy downpour so He made sure I was already safe before He let it rain heavily.

This doesn’t mean that God doesn’t care about those who got wet in the rain. I just remembered asking Him before I left to not let me get wet because I want to fully recover from my cough and cold (common cold). God showed me once again how kind He is.

I’ve been struggling with a spiritual slump recently (because of my crazy schedule but I’m intentionally working around it) but God reminded me that I am not forgotten and that He sees me. He continues to show me grace and mercy. God has been so, so kind to me.

Some might say it was just a coincidence but there’s no coincidence in God’s economy. Everything that happens, He has knowledge of. Each raindrop, He allows.

“…’Let us fear the Lord our God, who gives the rain in its season, the autumn rain and the spring rain, and keeps for us the weeks appointed for the harvest.’” Jeremiah 5:24 ESV

“He gives rain on the earth and sends waters on the fields…” Job 5:10 ESV

“I also withheld the rain from you when there were yet three months to the harvest; I would send rain on one city, and send no rain on another city; one field would have rain, and the field on which it did not rain would wither…” Amos 4:7 ESV

“He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.” Psalm 135:7 ESV
