The Headlines Read – Wells Drying Up


Water from a Rock

Our Lake Oroville, the main water source for Southern California is very low.  A sobering thought is that there was not sufficient rain and a good snow pack to fill it.

A couple months ago, I suggested NOT to pray for rain, but to speak to the rain clouds to come and bring rain.  Yes God did send some rain, but not enough.  Then we all relaxed.  Many are thinking "maybe next year will be a better season."

The alarm and cries of the media and newspapers are; “We are in a draught – the crops will fail, we need water for our animals and for the people.
I am reminded when Jesus told his disciples to SAY (not pray) - Mark 11:23

For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Consider another scripture story about Moses - - - God gave him specific instructions to SPEAK and sadly he did not obey and SAY as he was told.

Numbers 20:7, 8  Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together.  Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.”

Just for a moment let us expand our thinking and our believing and understand that God does cause water to flow out of rocks.  This is evidenced by tiny springs that bubble up from rocks and turn into creeks and by huge water falls that cascade into rivers.  It is a fact that water does come from rocks.

May I suggest not to pray for rain, but to SAY to the ROCKS in our mountains to crack open and pour out water to fill our lake.

What I am asking is for you to open your mouth and with your voice to speak to the mountain rocks to rip open and to flow forth water.

To some this may seem silly or foolish, but I am reminded that Jesus did many things that seemed irrational, and he was called all sorts of crazy names. 

If you are embarrassed to SAY in public, just SAY with me now, and continue to SAY:  “Rocks split open and gush out water into our Lake.” 

Not prayen but just SAYEN !! 

"If two or three agree as touching anything on earth, it shall be done."

  1. I prayed that prayer you gave us; I live in California too and this is a drought indeed. The effects are magnified by too many people living here, and if our population was what is was 10 years or 20 years ago the water would be much more sufficient.

  2. Amen, Hazel. The Word of God was used to speak all things into existence and He allows us to call on His name and power for times such as these. Thanks for the reminder.
