Your ‘Rain’ Is Coming

21st October 2019

Scripture Reading: 1 Kings 18: 40-46


“And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.” (1 Kings 18: 44)

When Elijah’s servant went to check the sea at the seventh time, he saw a little cloud arising out of the sea, like a man’s hand. What the servant saw was obviously little; what he saw did not look like what should produce the abundance of rain that Elijah had spoken about; what he saw did not look like what would become the miracle that the entire Israel was waiting for; what he saw was little, but it later became a heavy rain.

Friend, what you see may be like that little hand that arose from the sea, but it is pregnant with heavy results. The little signs of success you see are pregnant with more and more results; the little you see that is working in your favour has the capacity to become more and birth more in a matter of time; the ‘little’ clients are messengers that will soon bring the big clients; the little clouds will soon yield your heavy rain.

That which is small will grow in a matter of time; your miracle is growing; your relevance and influence is growing; your resources are growing; your results are growing; your greatness is growing; your open door might be small at the moment, but it will lead to something greater in a matter of time; your breakthrough now might seem insignificant, but it has the capability to grow; from this level, you will advance to the next level.

God is not about to show you a sign that progress is imminent, only to turn around to take away the progress. If the sign has begun to show up, then get set: there shall be more in a matter of time. If the little hand has arisen from your sea, then your rain is about to fall mightily; if the positive signs of your progress have begun to show forth, then get ready for a big release that God Himself will orchestrate and deliver unto you.

Always remember that if there is any sign of goodness at all, it will certainly grow to the next level if Jehovah is involved; if there is something left, then there is certainly something that God can bless.


My clouds will soon bring my heavy rain, in Jesus’ name!
