Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have [with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months.
And [then] he prayed again and the heavens supplied rain and the land produced its crops [as usual].
Have you ever felt like GOD had no reason to answer you because of your weak and faltering nature? Feeling like your prayers may just be going no where beyond the ceiling. Well, Elijah did exploits! He prayed and we tend to feel, oh those super faith giants of Bible times. They must have been super human and holy untouchables to get such results in their prayer lives.
Well, there was even a rumor at some point that Elijah might have been an angel after-all he didn’t even die, he was transported by a whirlwind to heaven. How more super holy can you be to defy the force of gravity and the all conquering grave?
Elijah prayed and the heavens obeyed him for three years, they withheld rain. Again he prayed and rain came. Well, it is so uplifting to discover he was a man of like passions. The struggles and temptations we face, he faced too.
You don’t have to be superman before you can have an audience with GOD.
Take courage! Pray today, Now! And expect great results.
