1st King 18:41-44
“Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees. Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea.” The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything.” Seven times Elijah told him to go and look”.
Perhaps, you are yet to see all those things you’ve been praying to God for from the beginning of this year. I bring you good news. This new month will deliver those blessings to your doorstep.
God is bringing satisfaction to your relationship, finances, career, and ministry!
Just like Elijah’s servant, you might have looked at the sea six times without any sign of rain. The situation might be looking hopeless, but, be rest assured that God’s word can never fall to the ground. You might not see it, but your cloud of joy is forming, that mighty rain of marital settlement is falling, doors are being opened up to you, your deliverance is coming this month.
Finally, the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea. “Then Elijah shouted, Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘climb into your chariot and go home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!” (1 Kings 18:44).
Every mighty rain starts with a cloud. The cloud is a symbol of God’s assurance. As long as you can see the cloud, don’t give up on God’s promises. it may look intangible, it will surely come big.
All you need to do is to spend some more time praying. Give God more worship. Separate yourself in fasting. Don’t stop giving. Stop every habitual sin. Give yourself to the ministry of the word…because after the clouds comes the rain.
“And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm” … (1 Kings 18:45).
This August, the rain is coming your way. That issue in your heart, it is coming to pass according to God’s word.
