That Dew Fall in the Morning

The Old Testament has a pattern when speaking about prophets and the chosen people. God makes a covenant, God delivers, People follow and Rebel, God restores and calls his people back into covenant. It’s Yahweh’s manner of never growing tired of compassion.

When God’s people complained of their hunger and wandering the in the desert, God sent his spirit like the dew fall and from there came manna from heaven.

I was always unsure of the word dew fall, until it really caught my attention in the Eucharistic Prayer when Father asks the Holy Spirit to come upon the gifts of bread and wine like the dew fall.

The post popular image of the Spirit of God is fire or a roaring wind. This concept of the Spirit coming as the dew fall implies a very gentle and subtle coming of God’s Spirit. This presence demands a deep sense of wonder and awe.

In our lives, we must be aware of God’s coming to us …. even in our moments of grumbling like God’s chosen people in the desert. He may come in the roaring fire and wind, making his presence clear as day. Other times, and even most of the time, God comes in gentleness and calmness. We must always be attentive so that he can transform us perfectly.
