1 Kings 17:8 “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying”

…From yesterday…

God loves us too much to leave us to ourselves. He saw the plight of his servant Elijah and promptly move in on a rescue mission but His action was probably not what many of us expected.

He didn’t drop cash, he didn’t create another river nor send an angel, neither did He send another bird; He sent His word. In a moment of crisis, we don’t need handouts, we need the Word of the LORD.

The problem of many people is that once the challenges of life shows up, which happens sometimes, they rely on their wisdom to bail them out. They phone a friend, they ask around and do so many other things rather than listen for His Voice.

I discovered that what many people do is to try every other thing and only decide to listen to God when everything else has failed. We normally do last what we were supposed to do first.

Let us take a critical look at our focal scripture once again:

1 Kings 17:8 “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying”

Hear me, the word of the LORD didn’t just come to Elijah, there was a “saying”. The word saying as used here is translated to mean: give commandment, commune, answer and intention.

It is instructive to know that any time the word of God comes to us, we must “listen for what it is saying”. God doesn’t just speak, He gives a commandment; He drops an answer to the puzzle and shows us His intention.

If we miss this critical part, we miss our solution. In every word of God, there is an instruction and an action to be taken. You must know and master this as a believer.

Know that whatever you say at the place of prayer is never going to be as important as what He will say! It doesn’t matter for how long you talk, until He speaks you must keep the communication channel open.

To be continued…
