Seems everywhere we look around here, we need rain. We will have a short shower, but not enough rain to make a difference. We have had showers or thunderstorms in the forecast for weeks, but they only hit spots, not a good rain!

Drought has also hit the Christian community. People have begun to relax in their church attendance. They no longer have the fervor that once was seen. I know it has been said that after the 9-11 tragedy, people began to come back to their first love - the Lord, and the churches began to fill up. But, that was then; this is now, and things aren't like they were.

Fullness Network's morning 'What the Lord Is Saying Today' was all about drought - how it has affected the church. Ras said that the Lord spoke to him today: "I alone am your water supply." How true! His Word says that He will "supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:19.

We, as Christians, need to pray for 'rain' in our lives, to water the Word within, that we might be able to withstand anything the enemy sends our way. Otherwise, we are going to become dry as a bone, and the enemy will keep beating us.

Not sure about your location, but we are getting a lot of rain south of Birmingham this afternoon. It is definitely needed in the northern area of the state, though.
