Have you ever felt the changing of seasons in both your body and your soul? It's like a flood of emotion and excitement that fills us, as the earth is renewed with warm spring rain and fresh green life. That's how I feel right now...because the Spirit of God is hovering over the waters again in a new way and a fresh wave of glory and harvest is about to break out.
It is time to hope again. I know it's cold outside right now, but in the Spirit, it is Springtime already: the rain is falling in steady streams and the dormant seeds are coming to life. This is not a short-term renewal or a move of God that will come and go with little impact. We are entering into the full restoration of all things, beginning with our hearts and minds. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence. Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.” --Hosea 6:2-3
