"Ask rain from the Lord during the season of the latter spring rains. And the Lord will make the storm winds; and He will give them showers of rain; all will have vegetation in the field" (Zech. 10:1).
Ask for rain. Ask for more rain. And then ask again for, "More, Lord!" When the rain of God's presence begins to fall in a manifested manner, you don't just stop there, do you? No! You must persist and ask for more.
How much of the Holy Spirit do you want? How much of His presence can you handle? How hungry are you? The depth of your hunger is the length of your reach to God. Ask for rain.
One of the primary Scriptures prayed throughout the revival pages of history is this particular passage from Zechariah 10:1. This scripture urges us—no, it compels us—to believe God for something bigger than we have ever dreamed or conceived. God has a big dream in his heart. He wants to the see the earth filled with the "knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the seas" (Hab. 2:14).
Many of us have pushed some of the greatest prophetic promises of God into the millennial age or even the eternal hereafter. But the Holy Spirit is urging some of us to think big, ask big and plan big. Some of us are being rearranged in some of our thinking and we are crying out to the Lord to bring some of what we projected only for the future into our now.
