23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before.
24 And the [threshing] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape] and oil.
25 And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten—the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you.
26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame.
27 And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame.
I love how the LORD speaks in nature and other things in His world (some call them "signs"). Him speaking this way to us is part of His Glory, His goodness-- and He will speak this way to anyone who truly wants to see and know. You can ask Him to speak to you--and to help you make sure you know it is Him. He is good, and His mercy endures forever. He will help you!
Yesterday afternoon I was headed home from my position where I teach at a public school over a half hour away. As I admired the clouds along the way, I saw a slice of a rainbow, high in the sky. It delighted me. "Thank You for the Covenant!" I said. "You are so good!"
I enjoy driving (most moments), especially because I can get quiet and listen to Him, pray, worship, and enjoy His beautiful creation. As I quietly prayed and worshiped, I enjoyed His peace.
He loves to delight me with cool things, unusual things, and I am always ready to see them. As I drew near to the airport, which is right around the curve from my church, I saw two trains on the tracks--not a phenomenon in itself, but these were: both were moving; with lights on, they were pulling many loaded cars--and they were parallel to each other; both headed the same direction, at the same time, only one was a few cars behind the other!
I knew this was a sign from my dear Daddy God to me about how He has double Glory for me (and you and everyone else)--if we will just believe and receive it!
Truly, this is the time for the double Glory--including double restoration; the restoration of what we should have had, and the restoration of ourselves to His original intent for us! The LORD is pouring out His Glory--as He promises us in Joel chapter 2 (and several other places!). Ask Him to help you believe and perceive and receive the double Glory!
