In those times, when life feels dry and without the moisture of hope, when you are walking through what seems like an endless desert, a reminder of your true condition is important. The following is a portion of a blessing Jan wrote titled, “Blessing of a Sign.” It is condensed from Scripture found in Isaiah 37:30-32, Leviticus 25:21, and Zechariah 8:12-13. Stand in the middle of your dry place and declare these words.
Hear God’s heart for you:
The seed will be prosperous,
the vine will give its fruit,
and the ground will give increase,
watered by the Dew of Heaven.
So, I will save you,
and you will be a blessing.
May you be saturated from the Dew of Heaven;
may you have peaceful, secure growing
conditions in order to take root
and to yield its fruit of prosperity.
I bless you with seeds of peace—
the grapevine heavy with fruit—
a vintage, triple crop.
You have confirmation that God’s hand
is upon you:
you are the heir of His blessings—
you are both a symbol
and a source of blessing.
