“He giveth power to the faint; and to those who have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall. But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their streangth; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint;” Isaiah 40:29 – 31
“….And Ahab rode,and went to Jezreel. And the hand of the Lord was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins; and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.” 1 Kings18:45 – 46
Dont you think that this is a physical proof of that passage in Isaiah ? …. Elijah ran faster than a horse for (how many ?) miles…. Elijah was an ordinary human being just like any of us…. but the reason he could do these amazing things is given in the passage “AND THE HAND OF THE LORD WAS ON ELIJAH”.
God wrought spectacular supernatural miracles and signs through Elijah because that was His choice…. but even if your miracles are less spectacular, the important thing you need to know is that GOD can do ANYTHING…. you have to have the right frame of mind towards GOD…. you have to BELIEVE that NOTHING is impossible even if “science” and “common sense” tells you otherwise… but that is not enough… why ?
Suppose you go and jump off a cliff and say…. I strongly believe that God can make me fly… you will end up dead and everybody will say that you were a lunatic.
FAITH is simply not enough…. the other most important condition is OBEDIENCE to GOD’S WILL…
God would never tell you to go and jump off a cliff just to prove His power (or amaze yourself or your friends)…. but satan and his demons might give you that idea to help you to an early death.
So you need to TRUST and OBEY… for there is no other way…
God’s WILL for you may not include any spectacular miracles at all…. and you will just have to accept that (if you want to be happy)…. the most important thing is…. finding out HIS WILL at all times (I will give you more guidelines on this in future posts)…. and being OBEDIENT to HIM..
Prayer for Today:
Loving Heavenly Father, may we surrender to Your Will…. and please keep and protect us from being deceived…. deliver us from evil and we thank You for Your many blessings today… in Jesus Name. Amen
