Faith-Building Verse-Zechariah 10:1

May 3rd, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verse is Zechariah 10:1.

Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone.

Spring is a season for warmer temperatures, planting of crops, and showers of blessing. This verse acknowledges rain as a blessing from God’s hand to provide nourishment for the land and food for the people. This verse also encourages us to turn to God for these blessings in the springtime.

Acts 14:17 says about God, “He has not left himself without testimony: He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provided you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.”

This faith-building verse inspires us to ask God for showers of blessings to provide for our daily needs in the Year of Relationship.
