James 5:17-18 (NASB) Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. Then he prayed again, and the sky poured rain and the earth produced its fruit.
Many people use the above verse as an excuse that they are just an ‘ordinary man’ like Elijah. However, when Elijah experienced the work of God’s Word and Spirit, he no longer becomes ordinary; Elijah became POWERFUL! Through Elijah, nature and man were aligned to the agenda of the Kingdom of Heaven. Elijah the Tishbite could face Ahab the king of Israel to deliver God’s voice!
The same goes for us. When we experience the work of God’s Word and Spirit, we no longer become ordinary people; we become a POWERFUL person just like Elijah! We’ll also have the same potential to face ‘kings’ on earth, carrying the authority of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Our natural condition doesn’t matter. Whether we are educated or not, ‘village people’ or someone famous, it doesn’t matter. Our ‘social stature’ also doesn’t matter. If the work of the Word and Spirit rules over us, we will exceed all of those natural limitations!
We’ll no longer live in the ‘portion/standard of this world’; we’ll live in the PORTION OF FAITH. By that faith, we will overcome this world! Our part right now is to earnestly pursue and seek God more than anything else.
Don’t let the world mold and shape us to be ‘skillful in pursuing money’, but hesitant to seek God. Don’t follow the ordinary flow of man who pursue money in order to survive. Remember: we are dead to sin, and we live for God alone (Rom 6:11)!
Persevere to experience the work of God’s Word and Spirit more and more. Because it is the reason God will use our lives to create the new heaven and earth – the restoration of all things – through our mouth!
Isaiah 40:28-31 (NKJV)
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 44:24 (NKJV) Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;
Isaiah 51:16 (NKJV) And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’ ”
Focus on Him; bind ourselves with the reality of His presence; live in His throne room; serve Him as the Living God; and you will receive the same power to recreate heaven and earth through the proceeding word He puts in your mouth.
I believe that God is raising up the generation of Elijah! Through this generation, everything under heaven and earth will align themselves according to the word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord! Kings and the whole universe will submit themselves under the power of the Kingdom of Heaven!
We are the generation who lives only from His word and reality. We’ll partner with God to create the new heaven and earth. The restoration of all things will come through this generation! This is the generation that all creations are longing for! #ILoveGod
