Date: Thursday 6 October
Theme: When Heaven Cooperates With You
Memorise: The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of His bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. – Deuteronomy 28:12
Please Read: Deuteronomy 28:11-12
28:11 And the Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
28:12 The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
Bible In One Year: Numbers 4:1-5:10; 2 Corinthians 1:1-11
Without a doubt, God wants all His children blessed (Psalm 35:27). Any farmer will tell you how important it is for rain to fall in the right time. Too early-crops destroyed, too late-crops don’t grow properly. While Joshua was in a crucial battle and the sun was about to set, he commanded both sun and moon to stay until he finished and they did (Joshua 10:12-14).
Many years ago, just five of us started a Bible study meeting at Professor Aboaba’s house at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Soon, the number of professors attending grew that we had to be using the backyard. As we were about to start one day, it started raining. They wanted to leave but I lifted my hand saying “rain, you cannot fall now”. On that day, it rained everywhere else apart from Professor Aboaba’s house. You need to be blessed of God and nature will favour you.
