While this amount is not enough to end our dry conditions or lift the risk of fires, it completely changed the atmosphere around us. The air is cool and has the fresh smell that follows a rain shower. The short rain burst settled the dust and rushed in new hope for new life.
This is what happens when a person lets the Holy Spirit rain on their life. Without the Holy Spirit, life gets dry, hard and shriveled. Emotions get tinder dry and risk erupting at the smallest spark. When the Holy Spirit is in a person’s life, new hope rushes in like a fresh fragrance. The entire atmosphere around you is changed by the Holy Spirit.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
If you are feeling dry and dusty, ask for the Holy Spirit to fill your life with a fresh shower.
