I once watched a group of energetic ants trying to build a sand house. It was amazing to see them gather pieces, sand, anything they could find and slowly but steadily their house began to take shape. When I passed by the same spot a few weeks lately, an ant hill was in place.
Today’s Passage: “And Elijah said to Ahab, “Get thee up and eat, for I hear the sound of abundance of rain (v.41)..then he said to his servant “Go up now, look toward the sea, and he went and looked and there was nothing. And he said, go again, seven times. On the 7th time the servant said “behold there ariseth a cloud from the sea, like the palm of a man’s hand. And he said, go unto Ahab and say to him” Prepare thy chariot and go down quickly, that the rain stop thee not” (1Kgs 18: 43-44)
Maybe you’re thinking it’s day 7 into the new year and there are no clouds in the sky. Elijah could smell and hear the sound of abundance of rain by faith long before it rained. Six times his servant went out to check, but no results.
Is there a goal you’re planning to achieve this year? take it one step at a time. Is there a expectation in your heart? Now is the time to push it forth, one giant step at a time.
Small beginnings usually precede big accomplishments. So “get thee up and eat. Start to prepare your carriage, lest the rains stop you”…It’s coming, surely it is coming!!!
Have a fruitful day.
