Singing praises, rejoicing and extolling the Lord – is like casting up a highway – inviting Him in – bringing the reign/rain of His presence.

This is a good thing to do especially in the desert — for it’s only the Lord’s presence that brings rain into your desert.

Psalm 68:8-9 AMP
8The earth trembled, the heavens also poured down [rain] at the presence of God; yonder Sinai quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
9 You, O God, did send a plentiful rain; You did restore and confirm Your heritage when it languished and was weary.

Proverbs 16:15 AMP
15 In the light of the king’s countenance is life, and his favor is as a cloud bringing the spring rain.

He Has Made Me Glad

Fruit

February 24, 2011

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. … Apart from Me you can do nothing. -Jn 15:4-5

It may look like you are in a dry and weary land
where there is no water
where it looks like no fruit could ever grow.
It may look like all promises to you are void.

Do not give up! Things are not as they appear.
Sing O barren sing! -Isa 54:1
The fruit of your lips will soon be revealed
No weapon formed against you shall prosper. -Isa 54:17
Spring up oh well! Sing to it! -Num 21:17

 

There is no sweeter song than the song of faith sung in the desert where it looks as if nothing could ever bloom.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. -Heb 10:23

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess His name. -Heb 13:15

 

THE WILDERNESS and the dry land shall be glad; the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the rose and the autumn crocus. -Isa 35:1

***

Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Lift up a song for Him who rides through the deserts{upon the clouds}, Whose name is the LORD{YAH}, and exult before Him. … O God, when You went forth before Your people, When You marched through the wilderness, Selah. The earth quaked; The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God; Sinai itself quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel. You gave abundant showers, O God; You refreshed Your weary inheritance. -Ps 68:4,7-9

They will not hunger or thirst, nor will the scorching desert heat or sun strike them down; For He who has compassion on them will lead them and will guide them to springs of water. -Isa 49:10

The desert only needs one cloud burst to bloom.

Sing to Yah, sing praises to His name.
Exalt the One and Only who rides upon the clouds thru the desert
Rejoice before Him who drops His rain from the clouds
Be refreshed, showered in His presence
There are streams in the desert -Isa 35:6
Drink in His tender mercies

 

Against all odds the desert rose unfolds and blooms
Fruit is revealed.

His going forth is as certain as the dawn; And He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth. -Hos 6:3
