DAILY DEVOTIONAL
 
“…By the power of the Holy Spirit the moral image of God is to be perfected in the character. We are to be wholly transformed into the likeness of Christ.
 
The latter rain, ripening earth’s harvest, represents the spiritual grace that prepares the church for the coming of the Son of man. But unless the former rain has fallen, there will be no life; the green blade will not spring up. Unless the early showers have done their work, the latter rain can bring no seed to perfection.
 
Many have in a great measure failed to receive the former rain. They have not obtained all the benefits that God has thus provided for them. They expect that the lack will be supplied by the latter rain. When the richest abundance of grace shall be bestowed, they intend to open their hearts to receive it. They are making a terrible mistake.” 
 
~ Testimonies to Ministers, p. 506-507 (emphasis added)
 
 
If you haven’t had the early rain experience, pray for it!
If you’ve had the early rain experience, pray for the latter rain!
By ALL MEANS, PRAY FOR RAIN.
 
God will provide!
