The Dew of Resurrection:
Israel is an arid land, with very little rain throughout the year especially from May through to October, rain is virtually unheard of. Because Israel was an Agrarian Culture, with an economy that was based on its ability to produce and maintain crops and farmland, dew is a vital weather phenomenon, which brings new life to the plants of this otherwise dry environment, all plant life would just wither up and die.
Dew became a reminder of how God works in each of our lives as we see drops of water that forms on a blade of grass brings life where otherwise there would be death. Hosea describes it most eloquently in a prophetic word given in Hosea 14:4-5 when he proclaims “I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine, anger is turned away from him. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily and cast forth his roots as Lebanon”.
It’s only because of the death and resurrection of Jesus when we have accepted Him into our lives; He becomes the Dew on the Blade of grass we call self, Jesus the Dew of heaven renews our lives, we were once dead but know we are alive. Romans 8:11 “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” Another example is the story of the prodigal son Luke 15:32 “thy brother was dead, and is alive again, and was lost, and is found.”
Let the refreshing dew of the resurrection lead you from the lost to the found!
