Why? 3 Possible Reasons We Experience Spiritual & Writing Drought

1.) We disobey God…An example from the Israelites – Deuteronomy 28:22-23 – “The Lord will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. The skies above will be as unyielding as bronze, and the earth beneath will be as hard as iron.”

2.) We may be lacking nourishment in God’s Word and prayer – Psalm 63:1 – “O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.”

3.) We might be going from one season to another – 1 Kings 17:5-9 – “So Elijah did as the Lord told him and camped beside Kerith Brook, east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat each morning and evening, and he drank from the brook. But after a while the brook dried up, for there was no rainfall anywhere in the land. Then the Lord said to Elijah, “Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you.”

Elijah was being prepared for his grand showdown with the priests of Baal on Mount Carmel.

• 2 Chronicles 7:13-14 Talking to King Solomon – “At times I might shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or command grasshoppers to devour your crops, or send plagues among you. Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”

• Acts 3:19-20 (The Message) - “Now it’s time to change your ways! Turn to face God so he can wipe away your sins, pour out showers of blessing to refresh you, and send you the Messiah he prepared for you, namely, Jesus”
