The Lord showed me a group of people in an village, celebrating the end of a very intense monsoon season. The clouds slowly dissipated and the sun shone, big and bright.
I heard The Lord say:
Your monsoon season is coming to a end. The strong winds, and heavy rains are slowely decreasing, and you will see the light shining through once again. The strong winds that threatened to blow your place of safety away, will only become a gentle breeze, the turbulent water that shook your foundations, making you lose your footing, will recede and fill your reservoirs. The dark, menacing clouds will dissipate, revealing blue, clear skies! You see, without the monsoon, you would have no way of sustaining the crops that have been growing during the rainy season. You would have no water stored to irrigate your fields, during the dry season, and no way of fueling your hydroelectric energy plants. Because you have not given up, given in, or lost hope during this turbulent season, you have been filled, and equipped with new strength, new energy, new anointing, and new wine. These are what will help you sustain the new assignment, new doors and opportunities that I will present you with. You cannot grow in your calling, or influence, if you don't know what it means to completely, and solely depend on Me! I Am your source of life, I Am your everything, and without me you cannot do anything, but with Me you can do all things!
(From World Atlas)
Since many developing countries and regions do not have modern irrigation systems, they are heavily reliant on monsoon seasons to provide moisture for their crops at the right times. These countries utilize basins where the rain accumulates for adequate water supply for the year. Some of the most consumed products in North America, such as the rice from China and tea in India, rely on the summer monsoons in the producing country.
Among other countries, India depends on the wet monsoons to produce electricity through hydroelectric energy. The seasonal rainfall also gets stored in basins to keep providing electricity throughout the dry seasons. The monsoons are so important to the economy of this country that former president Pranab Mukherjee referred to the season as "India's true finance minister." monsoons are true economic drivers in this country, as they are responsible for running most industries.
Without going through trying times, we will never know what it means to depend on God for our every need! Oil is produced through the crushing. We can only be filled if we are completely emptied from all that is of the flesh. Fruit comes from the death of a seed. The rainy season, cleanses us, fills up all the empty, depleted places. It gives us renewed energy, strength and drive! We become equipped with what we need to sustain the new anointing and assignment. It gives us time to rest, reflect and shed what is unnecessary. Our reservoirs get refilled, our new wine skins get filled with new wine. New assignment, new territory, new influence, need new wine! We cannot operate in a new capacity by using the old wine, no one puts new wine in old wine skins! The testing becomes our greatest source of wealth! Don't resist it, don't despise it! The process is necessary to become who we are meant to be! Trust in The Lord, He Is creating, molding, refining you! Let go, fall into His loving arms; the monsoon season is coming to and end! Your storehouses will be full, your promises are going to manifest. The sun will shine and the birds will be singing over you again. You will see the goodness of God in the land of the living!
Mark 2:22 NKJV
And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.”
Romans 8:18 NKJV
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
James 1:2-3 NKJV
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
1 Peter 5:10 NKJV
10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths
