The Dew In The Morning

Snow. Sleet. Rain. Dew.


God created many types of precipitation, each with a different purpose. He masterfully fashioned each to nourish and cleanse the earth. In taking a few minutes to bask in the now moment, my eyes landed on a spider web and I marveled at how droplets of water could cling and hold on to such a thin surface and it got me to thinking about those small yet mighty droplet of water; dew.


Dew On Web



What is dew?


Dew is the formation of water droplets that form at night as water condenses. As thin exposed objects lose heat their surface cools. When the surface cools and winds are calm or light, the condensed water vapor rests on the cooled surfaces. As the dew covers live surfaces, it provides nourishment.


May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness— an abundance of grain and new wine. Genesis 27:28


And I thought to myself, “Lord as I release the heat (frustration, worry, stress, anxiety, turmoil, warfare) and my surface (flesh) cools, allow your dew to fall on me. Lord, let your droplets nourish and cleanse me. Just as your dew clings to the thinnest of spider webs, let me cling just as desperately onto you. Come NOW dew of Hermon and sit and rest upon me.


God’s dew represents blessing, growth, abundance and prosperity. So how do we receive the dew?


Receive The Word

Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants. Deuteronomy 32:2


Be Rooted In Him

When we are rooted in him, the dew comes.

My roots will reach to the water, and the dew will lie all night on my branches. Job 29:19



Psalm 133:3 The dew of Hermon was said to have been so plentiful that is appeared as if a heavy rain had fallen. God wants to make His dew rain and rest on you.


When the children of Israel were in the wilderness, God sent dew in the morning. There was a layer of dew AROUND the camp. God will surround you with blessing and favor.

That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp.



When the dew comes, so does the blessing. When the dew came, the manna came also.

When the dew settled on the camp at night, the manna also came down. Numbers 11:9


Dew is life giving and can resurrect dead things in your life.

But your dead will live, Lord; their bodies will rise— let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy— your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead. Isaiah 26:19


I pray these words collect in your spirit and rest there just as the dew rests on the grass. May you be cooled, nourished and refreshed by the dew in the morning.


As always, it is my prayer that you’ve been Inspired To Live Fully!

    Oh, perspective is such a funny thing! I was just complaining to myself about what a pain it is that the morning dew is making my dogs track in wet paws all over my house :). I can always count on you for a beautiful attitude adjustment, Tyra! This: “When the dew comes, so does the blessing. When the dew came, the manna came also.” What an important reminder. Many blessings to you, my sweet friend!
