Joel 2:28-32a, “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on [My] menservants and on [My] maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD. And it shall come to pass [That] whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.”
I was in prayer with a friend this morning, as we do every Friday, and the Lord laid on my heart these words from the prophet Joel.
Its been quite a year here in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. Not only have we had to contend with the pandemic the whole world is dealing with, but we also had the worst forest fire season on record. We almost lost our home.
Then, we had terrible rains which meteorologists called “an atmospheric river”. We got so much rain along with higher temperatures which melted the snow pack in the mountains and flooding occurred in much of the southern part of British Columbia. Major roads were destroyed, houses lost, and communities evacuated.
I pray that 2022 will be a year of renewal and that the Lord would provide for the world, and for the church, an atmospheric river of grace, mercy, and peace with power, signs, and wonders. May the Holy Spirit be poured out on all who call on the name of the Lord and be saved. God bless.
