Open the Floodgates

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

One of my all-time favorite songs is by Michael W. Smith, Let it Rain.   It almost always gives me chills…especially when they read Psalm 97.  Not surprising, since music does that too me.  Give it a listen:)

According to Pastor John, rain is far more significant.  In order to water crops in the Near East, water must come from above.

-Water will be carried in the sky from the Meditteranean, in clouds

-One inch of rain to fall on one square mile of land is 2,323,200 cubic feet of water, 17,377,536 gallons, 144,735,360 pounds.

-It arrives in the clouds through evaporation and gets down through condensation.  Water becomes water again by gathering up dust particles between .00001 and .0001 centimeters wide.

-The Mediterranean Sea is salt water, salt must be taken out, and the water moved 300 miles.

-If the water was dumped the crops would be ruined, it must be dribbled, big enough to fall and small enough to not crush.

-The specks get heavy enough through coalescence.  They join up, get bigger, and fall. 

Rain, a seemingly insignificant thing, really isn’t.  When I listen too this song, it reminds me of the storms that are raining down on me and when I am reminded of how sovereign God is over the rain, I find comfort in knowing that no matter how hard it rains, there is a purpose, He is bigger, and the rain will go away, in time.
