Audacious faith

apbewsafmanstandsaloneOne man stands alone against 750 false prophets, against a despot and against his power-hungry wife who runs death squads.

Elijah challenges virtually an entire nation when he calls down fire from Heaven upon a water-saturated sacrifice that gets incinerated. Seeing this, the Israelites remember God Jehovah and turn back to their roots.

Where did such faith come from? Everything was against him. I want this kind of audacious faith. Procure in prayer and Bible study a faith that:

  • never cowers
  • always hopes
  • always loves
  • never complains
  • accomplishes the impossible
  • whips the devil
  • never wavers no matter the storm’s intensity
  • does not let fear creep in

Some of my favorite faith-filling verses are:

  1. James 5:16 NIV Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly…
  2. Matt. 17:20 NIV if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
  3. Matt. 9:29 NIV According to your faith let it be done to you
  4. Matt. 21:22 NIV If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
  5. Heb. 11:1 NIV Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

    God bless you brother…

  10. Like you, I would like to have Elijah’s faith! But once, when I was in a terrible situation, Father encouraged me by the fact that Elijah RAN AWAY IN FEAR from Jezebel. That he was human like me lifted me more than the fire from Heaven. Recently, a friend of mine was telling me he was going to fix his motorbike he’d had in his back yard for 23 years! It was in the Mad Max movie. I knew he never would, so prayed. Soon after he tells me he’s working 2 jobs to pay for the bike as it’s at a restorers! I’ve known the bike and the man for all that time but never thought to pray for such a thing. Next, I’m going to try walking on water!!
