New Wine


Give us new wine. We come here with nothing. Give us what we need. Fill us up to overflowing. Empty out what we don’t need and fill us up with what we do need. And what we need is you!

O Lord. Much has been lost. Yes. Much has been lost. Lives, business, jobs, hopes and dreams, freedoms. America and her people have suffered great loss. Our President has suffered untold, unimaginable and unending criticism and accusations. We cry out to you! Have pity on your people. Jealously guard our land. Give us your precious promise of restoration. Guard us! Protect us! Cover us!

You said you will send us grain, new wine and olive oil to satisfy our needs. We will no longer be an object of mockery among the surrounding nations. You will drive away these armies that surround us. Drive them away! Drive them into the ground! Send them into the parched wastelands to waste away. We will declare! Surely the Lord has done great things! He has not forsaken us! You will hear our cries for help and you will come. Yes! You will come and heal our land. So be it!

We do not fear! Oh no! We declare! These barren wilderness pastures will soon be turned to lush green. And we will dance among the flowers of the field. The trees will again be filled with fruit. Fig trees and grapevines will be loaded down once more. And we will rejoice! We will rejoice in the Lord our God! For he has done great things for us. For the rain he sends demonstrates his faithfulness.

Once more the autumn rains will come as well as the restoring rains of spring. The Lord will restore! We declare it. The Lord says. I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. We say again! The Lord will restore! The Lord will repay our enemies. Oh yes! You are the Lord and you will repay our enemies.

Then after doing all these things. I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Oh yes! You will! Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants. On men and women alike. So says the Word of the Lord! O Hallelujah!

Come Lord! Come and pour out your Spirit. Come and fill us with your new wine!

In Jesus name. Amen.
