Our Elijah

1sam-2-2James chapter 2. verse 14-29.
Reminds us that faith without works are very much like a person that enters a race. Then waits for the starting gun, if it is not heard then they stay at the start. Then they never move and everybody else has gone

We can all do this sometimes when the Lord is moving us out of our comfort zones. You know the one, this is for somebody else!. Well God would not let Elijah alone. Nor would Elisha let Elijah put him off.

I think Elijah knew from his own experience that the life of a prophet could be very hard. but Elisha had heard that voice and he knew he had to do something.

We ask God to use us in mighty way, could be that God is wanting us to smite the waters of the river of abuse that comes against Christians. Food for thought and that includes me. Notice that the command is to smite the waters. To smite is to do it with all of our might. If we want that double portion, then we need to go all the way. There is a river that flows from the throne of grace, so go ahead and smite it!.

When we do that God will never sell us short. He is prepared to use us as much as we want. Just hold on because it is quite a ride!.

  1. My husband and i were absolutely relieved that Chris could finish up his preliminary research out of the ideas he received from your own web site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply always be giving out facts that the others have been trying to sell. And now we do know we need the writer to be grateful to for that. The most important explanations you have made, the straightforward site menu, the friendships your site help to foster – it’s many great, and it is facilitating our son in addition to the family reckon that that issue is pleasurable, which is wonderfully pressing. Thank you for the whole lot!
