His going forth is prepared as the morning; and He shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth. (Hosea 6:3)

End Time Rain Devotion

Psalms 100:4 (KJV)
“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.”

Psalm 100 provides believers with everything we need to cultivate an attitude of thankfulness. We are invited to have a relationship with God and to be in his very presence. When we approach him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, we must follow the kingdom protocol: clothed in garments of thanksgiving - that will enable us to effortlessly enter into his gates. Once we have passed through the gates of his kingdom as we approach his courts and seek to enter his presence then we are to praise him, be thankful and bless his name.

We are to show to the world and to all the heavenly intelligences that we appreciate the wonderful love of God for fallen humanity... our joy in the Lord and our efficiency in His service would be greatly increased by recounting His goodness and His wonderful works in behalf of His children. These exercises drive back the power of Satan. They expel the spirit of murmuring and complaint, and the tempter loses ground. Christ's Object Lessons, 299, 300.

Thanksgiving, praise and blessings towards God are not only acts of worship, but they are weapons of spiritual warfare. When we thank God for what he does for us and praise him for who he is we are saying to the enemy that he has no power over us, and he is a defeated foe. By acknowledging God as Creator and recognising his unconditional love for us we place ourselves in the centre of his will where we understand our purpose. Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:10 “we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.” What then are these good works? We find the answer in 1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. Our unconditional worship of God is a witness to both heaven and earth dwellers of our allegiance and love for God despite our circumstances.

Father in Psalms 95:1-2 you invite us to worship and bow down and kneel before the you as our maker. For you are our God; and we are the people of your pasture, and the sheep of your hand. Give us the strength to overcome every obstacle, temptation and test so that we can be spectacle to the world of our indefatigable adoration and devotion to you always. to give us the desire and ability to please you and live our life in accordance with your will. May you hide your word in our hearts so that we do not sin against you Not only that, bring us to a place where we will hunger and thirst for righteousness and hate sin.
