Morning Thought: I woke up very early, long before dawn. As I sought the Lord I heard rolling thunder and gentle rains. The Lord spoke to me for Australia saying, “Just as it is storm season in Australia, so my people are experiencing a season of storms. Many have been battered by the winds and rains, and the thunder and lightning is startling you. But see my big picture. These are the spring rains which bring about my harvest. Without the storms, there will be no harvest. Let my presence rain down upon you in this time.” I was then reminded of this Scripture: “So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD. 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” (Hosea 6:3, NASB).
