Rain speaks of times of refreshing, providence, abundance, victories, blessings, breakthroughs, whichever you need in your current time of need. The Bible says He has given us the former rain faithfully, that speaks of the ‘first fruits’ of blessings – past victories, blessings and breakthroughs. But you got to understand that that is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s just appetizer. The teaser of the banquet spread. God says I will bring the latter rain. That means God is not a one hit wonder. This is important because when we understand God’s character and intent, that helps give us a framework at how to do life and how that life will work out.

Most importantly, the latter rain speaks of fulfillment (of the promise). In the context of those days, farmers needed rain for their crops to grow. Hence all the talk about rain. The farmers plant their crops, the ‘former’ rain came, they reaped a bountiful harvest, but they then prepare the ground for another time of sowing – and reaping! They don’t ask if the ‘latter’ rain wouldn’t come. They have full assurance that the rain will come. Likewise, have the assurance that God will come true for you. His latter rain will come. But you need to make preparations for it too. Add God into the equation.
