The Blessing of God's Spiritual Influence

Perhaps today you are honestly doing all you know to do, but it seems like you are in this season of drought.  God's blessing has seemingly dried up in your life.

Let me point you to 2 Samuel 21:1-3,

Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year; and David inquired of the LORD.  And the LORD answered, "It is because of Saul and his bloodthirsty house, because he killed the Gibeonites."  So the king called the Gibeonites and spoke to them.  Now the Gibeonites were not of the children of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites; the children of Israel had sworn protection to them, but Saul had sought to kill them in his zeal for the children of Israel and Judah.  Therefore David said to the Gibeonites, "What shall I do for you?  And with what shall I make atonement, that you may bless the inheritance of the LORD?"

There was a famine in the land because there had been no rain for three years.  So David inquired of the Lord, and God spoke to him.  If you read to the end of the story, you see the rain finally did fall, the drought was broken, and the famine was over.

But here is the point.  It says, David inquired of the Lord, and the Lord answered him.

If there is a drought in your life, ask God why.  God will talk to you.  Jesus said, "My sheep hear My voice."  If you in earnestness will seek God and ask Him why, God will speak to you.

Be willing to take responsibility for whatever He shows you.  There just may be something in the past that needs to be corrected.

Just ask. Then act on what He reveals.
