DEVO. 05.03.24

"Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.” ‭ (James‬ ‭5:17-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

- Here is the prophet Elijah who the Bible says is just “as we are”.

- This may be shocking when you see it but it says that He is just like you and me!

- Not different, He’s the same.

- It’s easy to look at prophets like Elijah and some of the great people in the Bible and think of them as, “special” or different.

- But James clearly says, “as we are”.

- So, what made him different?

- His prayer life!

- His prayer life that was connected to faith! Not faith in what he could do but faith connected to who His God was and what God could do!

- What does your prayer life say about you?

- When Elijah saw difficulties, he prayed.

- But not just when he had difficulties.

- His prayer life was already established so that when difficulties hit, that was his “knee jerk reaction”

- He saw prayer as an opportunity to tap into Gods power.

- To Him, prayer was a privilege.

- Prayer was about seeing what God sees, not what his limited eyesight could see.

- Prayer was about trusting in an unseen God while encountering very visible problems.

- Prayer is about inviting God into the middle of a problem and allowing Him to reveal the solution.

- Elijah prayed!

- That was the difference!

- Today, have you prayed?

- If not, it’s time to start!

- If you pray, it matters and if you don’t pray, it matters!

- Your prayer life is what will set you apart!

- Establish a prayer life today and make it essential so that you don’t go another day without it!

- Have a great Weekend!
