17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours [with the same physical, mental, and spiritual limitations and shortcomings], and he prayed [a]intensely for it not to rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.
When you study the life of Elijah you’ll find a man who got his feelings hurt, he got angry, sad, depressed (even to the point of death), he was fearful, had times of confusion, felt abandoned by his peers and God, he got burned out in ministry, and faced temptation to fold and quit daily. This person was exactly like us. Yet he seen great and mighty works of God that most Christians today can’t even imagine. What set him apart? 3 things come to mind. #1 he trusted in God’s ability to do all things, nothing was impossible with God in his eyes. He never questioned if God could come through. #2 he trusted in God’s willingness to work on his behalf in the midst of his troubles, he never questioned if God would come through. #3 he was bold yet humble enough to ASK GOD TO MOVE!
If you ever wanna see the mountain of troubles that hinder you move we must be willing, bold, and humble enough to ASK GOD to move on our behalf believing He can, will, and is moving as we PRAY! PRAY CHURCH PRAY!
6 But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.
