A Short Study of Ezekiel 34:26

“There shall be showers of blessing.”
(Ezekiel 34:26)

The other day I was feeling so down, so full of sorrow, doubt, fear, worry. . . with my head hanging down. Then I lifted up my head and looked outside . . . the gentle rain was falling, the blessed water of this life was coming down, watering the earth, filling the pools; sweet, refreshing rain . . . while I was mourning and worrying.

Scripture says, “He (Christ) shall come down like rain upon the mown grass, as showers that water the earth” (Psalm 72:6). Yes, He came, the blessed Water of life, He heard the cries of His people by reason of their captivity, sins, and sorrow, and “He came down to deliver them out . . . to bring them up out of the land unto a good land.” (Exodus 3:7-8)

Scripture says, “There shall be showers of BLESSING” . . . singular . . . Blessing, the One thing needful . . . the One we need, Christ the LORD. There has been, is now (while we sorrow and worry), and shall forever be, showers of blessing . . . gospel promise after promise of His love, mercy, grace, salvation, peace, protection, preservation, provisions and sure hope in Christ.

So, let us lift up our heads and bless the LORD, Who reigns and rules over all, “Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Yes, lift up our heads . . . in spite of all our doubts and fears, His tender mercies are falling and, bless His Name, our “redemption draweth nigh” . . . it’s almost over . . . it’s all over but the shouting!

P. Mahan
