Isaiah 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
The rain and snow descend to water the earth and continuously waters it until it produces a yield. Thus, until watering is done and fruits become evident, watering does not cease. That is the word of the Lord.
Any and every achievement can be linked to the principle of ‘keeping at it’: pressing on till one’s goal is realised.
On the way to the cross, Jesus fell and even had to receive help with the cross. Yet, for the fruit of that sacrifice and the necessity of completing that difficult walk, He persevered until the end. As as we approach Easter, the only reason we have anything to celebrate is because the price He paid, gives us the reason to. His perseverance won for us an eternal victory.
The reason rain keeps on watering is because it is inherently aware that the earth on which it falls, has potential to produce a yield. That has been true because from the very beginning of creation, it brought forth yield. The reason why some individuals are pushed to reach beyond their current status or exhibited ability is because of their potential for bigger yield.
To which end, they need to stay watered: watered with encouragement and knowledge of the Word, with measured-praise and correction where necessary; even rebuke in love when appropriate. We ought to leave our taps open and allow the stream of water to soften even the toughest of grounds. For then, shoots will sprout and yield become evident. So keep watering
