“Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass” (Deuteronomy 32:1, 2).
Listening to God’s voice when He speaks to us brings life-saving sustenance, similar to the rain bringing life to the trees, plants, and flowers. But unlike ordinary rain, His Word brings eternal life.
