“Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have [with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain, and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months… And [then] he prayed again and the heavens supplied rain and the land produced its crops.” –I Kings 18:42-45.
An ordinary person can achieve extraordinary things through prayer. Elijah was a man with the same nature of flaws and frailties just like us. But he was able to change the course of a whole city through effective prayer. He sometimes lost his temper and got a little overboard just like us, but those deficiencies did not stop him from engaging God to produce significant change wherever it was necessary.
Do away with all those excuses you come up with for not praying and humbly approach God. He’s the One you should be running to and not running from. Your refusal to pray especially when you know how to is a subtle sign of arrogance – you don’t have it all figured out. Get all the help and support you need from the almighty God and get extraordinary in your life!
Confession: I choose God in spite of my frailties. I don’t choose condemnation. I boldly seek Him and obtain grace in time of need.
