Daily Reading: Ezekiel 34-36

Ezekiel 34:26

And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.

Yes indeed! There shall be showers of blessings! Some take this chapter to speak of the church age, some consider it to be the millennial age (the 1,000-year reign of Christ on the earth). Some even other times and incidences, but whatever the exact time this passage is speaking of, for the child of God, born by the Spirit into the family of God through the new birth, every time is the time of showers of blessings!

In fact, in any age, in all ages, people of God have a specific promise of blessings so great that there will not be room enough to receive them in totality. Yes! Malachi 3:10 tells us about it: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Of course, this promise is conditional to ones giving. But the promise of showers of blessings in Ezekiel 34 has no conditions. It is an unconditional promise of God.

Given that, consider Heaven. Yes, heaven is obtained through faith, but even that faith is not of you, it is a gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). In heaven there will be so many blessings that if they could all be listed no number of computers in all the world would have enough memory to store all the blessings that could be recorded. Think about just one area. How about the blessings of visiting with every generation of your family? Your great-great-great-great-great grandparents. If they knew Christ in life, they will be there. For all eternity you will be able to visit with them. Hear their stories, learn their personalities, get an understanding of their hardships, discover their victories, and come to know how and when they received Christ. What a blessing. Yet, there is more! They will get to know you!

Couple those blessings with a mansion, clear and free, the angelic choir, gold streets, the river of the water of life, the tree of life, and of course, Jesus in His glory, God the Father on the throne, and perhaps the personification of the Spirit of God. What blessings await those in Christ!

Yes indeed! There shall be showers of blessings!

Until tomorrow, live for Christ today.
