A Dark Cloud Is Often The Announcement Of Favor To Come

In review of Proverbs 16:15 it says, “In the light of the king’s face is life, and his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain.”

Bottom Line:
When the king is happy and pleased with you, his favor will be much like a refreshing rain.

What this means to me:
Having faith and continually doing the right things will result in the favor, much like a rain cloud in the spring that brings forth the harvest.

Today’s verse comes from Proverbs 16. This chapter is filled with tips of wisdom regarding finding and doing what would be considered a righteous life and the good results that come from it.

In ancient Israel the latter rain was the rain that brought forth the fall harvest.  A could announced the rain and guaranteed what was to come, but the rain actually produced the harvest, and the blessing.

When a dark cloud appears in my life, I should not consider it a cloud of despair and disappointment, but rather one sent by God announcing that the latter rain is on the way. The harvest I’ve been awaiting is closer than I think. So I can lift my head and rejoice!  God the Almighty is about to bless me with an abundance that I’ll have a hard time containing.

I can stop doubting that good things can come my way because of my past, because of what others around my may say or because of what the enemy has put into my heart. I just need to believe that God can and will bring the latter rain into my life and soak me to the bone with His divine blessings. It will happen in Jesus’ name!
