Spiritual Drought by Apostle Santiago Lastra – ISBN: 978-1-792071591 : Although there is no universally accepted definition of drought, since it depends on the usual circumstances of each place, we can understand it as, “a transitory anomaly in a period of time when the amount of water available falls below the requirements to sustain life in that area. The water isn’t sufficient to support the needs of the plants, animals, and humans” (Wikipedia). When the demand for water is greater than the quantity available, it’s called a shortage. Drought causes problems in the development of crops, as well as disease in plants. Moving to the spiritual plane, we can define drought as “a transitory period in which the level of God’s blessings poured out on his people falls below the level of need,” Which causes discouragement, lack of spiritual development, and disease, both physical and spiritual.
