THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
GOD SAYS, WE CAN ASK FOR THINGS THAT SEEM IMPOSSIBLE
I think most of us see many people in the Bible as SUPERHUMAN. When we read about someone like the prophet Elijah and the MIRACLES he did, we think he had so much more FAITH than us, and God favored HIM because he was so SPECIAL. Yet James says that “Elijah was as completely HUMAN as we are.” Of course, we KNOW he was human, not an alien. But God was REMINDING us that Elijah was just like you and ME–an ORDINARY person who was filled with the Spirit of the Most High GOD. He didn’t walk around with a supernatural GLOW. The reason you’re reading about Elijah TODAY is that he dared to pray BOLD prayers. He dared to ask for the IMPOSSIBLE. That’s what made him stand OUT, and we can do the SAME.
Quit DISCOUNTING yourself. Quit thinking you can’t PRAY for something BIG, that you don’t have the FAITH. The requirement is that you are a HUMAN. Since you ARE, God says you can ask for things that seem IMPOSSIBLE.
James 5:17, TLB
Elijah was as completely human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next three and a half years!
