Verse of the Day for Monday, September 20, 2021


Verse of the Day
Monday, September 20, 2021

Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
Rather than using rivers like the neighboring Egyptians (the Nile) and Mesopotamians (the Tigris and Euphrates), Israel depended on rain to provide water to irrigate its fields (Lev 26:4). The early autumn rains in September–October softened the soil for plowing after the summer dry season, while the later spring rains allowed spring and summer crops to mature. They both are God’s blessing (Jer 5:24).
