The God Who Provides the Rain 

Read Zechariah 10:1
Today’s Truth

In a world where so much is naturalistic, materialistic focused on what we can see, focused on what science says. Not that this is going against science and how rain happens with clouds and this or that, but the whole point is, it’s not ultimately natural processes. It’s the season of the spring rain because it’s the time when God chooses to fill the clouds with rain.

Discussion Question
  1. God is the one who brings the rain. Do you believe that God is responsible for things like the rain? Explain your answer.
  2. Why do you think that Jesus asks us to pray for daily bread? Why is dependance on God so important?
  3. Do you pray for God’s daily provision? Why or why not?
Life Application

Everything around us, in creation, is happening because of the sovereign Lord of creation. He’s the one who commands storm clouds to form, who commands storm clouds to bring water to the earth, to bring showers of rain. Zechariah 10:1, that cause crops in the field to grow. God does it all, which means it is right, not just to assume rain, but to pray for rain. It’s right, not just to assume food. Like why does Jesus teach us to pray? Give us this day, our daily bread? Well, that makes a lot of sense in a time, a place, where you’re not guaranteed food tomorrow.
