May is the month in which everything bursts forth with the beginning of new life. Everything that has been hibernating raises its head in March and April, but in May these precious new lives are in full bloom. The old nursery rhyme, “April showers bring May flowers,” is still true. However, the only people who are interested in the rain are those who have planted seed in the ground! You have planted much-needed seed, and the rains of God’s providence and grace have watered that seed for a manifested harvest.
In Isaiah 55:10, we find this miraculous truth: “As the rain and snow come down from heaven…watering the earth and making it bud and flourish…so will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed.” It’s harvest time! Prayers that have gone before the throne and seeds which have been sown according to God’s promise must prosper in our lives. We must always remember the seasons will change. Our prayers and sowing will be rewarded. We will taste and see that God is good (Ps34:8)!
Thank you so very much for sowing your seeds of prayer and finance into the ground of ICM. May our God of new beginnings cause the rains of His Spirit to bring new life and new opportunities for you to grow and flourish. May your harvest in this season bring comfort and assurance of the Love of the Father towards you!
Blessings and peace,
