My family was looking forward to the nice sunny weather that had been forecast for our area for this entire week. But by noon yesterday, our sunny skies had become overcast. So we made the decision to prepare for coming rains. Shortly after sunset the rains arrived and the weather forcasts had been updated to call for heavy rains and winds through tonight. We are so glad that we prepared for the arrival of the rainy weather.
This morning during my prayer time, I was lead to Luke 12:
54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
The Lord is reminding us to be ever watchful and alert to clearly discern the time in which we live. Be not found sleeping or unfaithful at the return of the Master of the house for He shall surely come!!! Do not be deceived by the reports of man or how things may temporarily seem in the natural. Read and discern the signs of the times and move by the leading of the Holy Spirit!
