2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
1 kings 17
*when we give despite how little we have, it unlocks our blessings, so remember when your in drought don't doubt, the rain is coming!
1 Kings 18
*notice in the story the people got hooked up with the man of god. they followed his commands and trusted him and ran everyday looking for the rain clouds during the time of drought. And when he saw the small cloud the size of a mans hand in the sky his faith amplified and he said, Believe! Get ready because the rain is coming! the people did not doubt. they waited on god. and i want you to know elijah sent his servant out 7 times before they even saw that tiny little cloud in the sky! but that little cloud was just enough to boost their faith. and let me tell you that rain came! and it came! and it came! so much so that the drought had ended and all the glory was give to god.
But what about you, are you believing despite what you see? what runs through your mind when you see the little cloud on the horizon?
