Showers from above

The Creator of heaven and earth usually displays a shower of glory every July/August from a constellation far away in space called Perseus. A cloud of particles are ejected by this comet as it travels on its 133-year orbit. Most of these particles have been part of this cloud for around a thousand years. This annual meteor shower - known as the "fireball champion" of meteors - happened this week to the joy of many star-gazers all over the globe.

But this ancient heavenly display is not just for show. It is a picture of the real showers the Ancient of Days sends occasionally to his beloved here below. Showers of his goodness, love and mercy. These He rains down like real rain. From His huge storehouse with big windows, He occasionally pours out His goodness in forms of showers of blessing - Eze 34:26. These showers can be heavy or light depending on the faith of the recipients on earth.

They hold the keys to these windows because the Bible says if they ask the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain - Zec_10:1. All they have to do is ask. The locks of windows above are in the lips of the saints below. Whatever they bind or loose on earth will be bound or loosed in heaven. This is the heritage they enjoy as children of the Most High – the privilege to ask and then receive. Where did they get this honour and privilege from?

They got it though the good offices of that great Star who came from above called The Bright and Morning star - JESUS CHRIST. By virtue of being His followers God has also made them to be stars -Dan_12:3. As the Father of Lights He has availed every good gift and perfect gift to His stars - Jas_1:17. Don’t miss out. Send some praise up today, and see if He will not open His windows and shower down a blessing too big for you to contain.
