“I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city”
According to Job 37:16, the balancings of the clouds belongs to God. Because of His goodness, He allows it to rain upon the just and the unjust alike. However, there is a principle in this passage of scripture we must understand.
God can give rain or withhold rain according to the determinate counsel of His own will. He has the sovereign power and ability to give to some that which He withholds from others. Not everyone is going to be directly blessed by Him beyond the common blessings experienced by all.
“Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed” was the prayer of Jabez. More of us should long for the uncommon blessings of God in our lives. Though many are spiritually barren, we can “be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit”
– Jeremiah 17:8
