Day 21 1 King 18:42-44

“Can You Hear The Thunder?”

“Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and fell to the ground and prayed. Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.” The servant went and looked, but he returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.” Seven times Elijah told him to go and look, and seven times he went. Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a hand rising from the sea.” Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, `Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’ ” (1 Kings 18:42-44)

“Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and fell to the ground and prayed.” There is a place in our lives where the Lord wants us to get to. I have noticed that nothing comes easy with this walk with the Lord. For Elijah, it was to the top of Mount Carmel , for some it may be a position at work, school or life in general. We are a people powered by movement. When Elijah made it to the top of the mountain he fell down to his knees and prayed unto the Lord. “Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.” The servant went and looked, but he returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.”  I always think to myself if faith was truly in seeing, would we still believe? Sometimes you pray so hard for something to come to pass that if it doesn’t come to pass, we are let down.

“Seven times Elijah told him to go and look, and seven times he went. Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a hand rising from the sea.” I know everyone of us is pressing into our destinies at some point. For many of us it may be just a hand size cloud, but I am here to tell you believe and it shall rain! It is by faith that you can take the little you have and believe in the harvest that will over flow. I don’t know if you have ever seen a mustard seed, but from this little seed, comes a huge plant. We are all little mustard seeds when compared to the size of this world, but there is a harvest inside of you that is waiting to be birthed and it shall be blessing to all.
