For the Dry Season is Over “We Receive Your Rain”

For the Dry Season is Over “We Receive Your Rain”

–There is a Cloud

Hear the word, roaring as thunder

With a new, future to tell

For the dry, season is over

There is a cloud, beginning to swell

Through the skies, heavy with blessing

Lift your eyes, offer your heart

Jesus Christ opened the Heavens

Now we receive, the Spirit of God

–We receive your rain!

 

 

How Long Will You Hesitate Between Two Opinions!

How Long Will You Hesitate Between Two Opinions!

1 Kings 18:29  Midday passed, and they continued their frantic prophesying until the time for the evening sacrifice.  But there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention.

A Place Where Fear Has to Face the God You Know!

A Place Where Fear Has to Face the God You Know!

 

God is inviting us all to walk in Faith not Fear today.

1 Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.

Come Alive!

Come Alive!

1 Kings 17.17-24

Did you know?

  • Hope raised then suddenly shattered is incredibly painful.
  • It is not what happens to you but your response to that shapes your life.

The Widow’s Response

It is easy when we suffer to quickly forget the goodness of our friends, our family, our church, and God.

Elijah’s Response

  • Elijah did not try to justify himself
  • He totally identified with her pain & loss.
  • He said very little.
  • He wanted her to know and accept God.
  • Elijah extended himself until Revival came.

God, very God, alive, alert, active, at work in this man by his own presence and Spirit, had not only made the boy alive, but he had brought her alive too, to the living Lord. At last she had accepted not only Elijah, but even more important Elijah’s God.

 

Elijah- Trusting God in Difficult Times

Elijah- Trusting God in Difficult Times

I Kings 17:8-16

  1. The Cutting Places of Life Have Their Benefit.
  2. At Zarephath Elijah was to be tested and toughened in a deep moral and spiritual dimension.

Zarephath means “the place of refining.”

Three things would refine Elijah

  • The distance he was to travel.
  • The place he was going.
  • The person he was sent to be with.
  1. The secret to strength and serenity in human relationships is to shift our immediate attention from ourselves and our suffering to that of another.
  2. Elijah took his cue from God not from his contemporaries and therefore became a channel through which God could do a miracle.
  3. God honors those who honor him.

1 Kings 17:14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’”
