Motivated by Faith or Fear?

No matter how crazy it might be – When God calls us to do something we need to be motivated out of faith not fear. The provision will always be there.

In 1 Kings 17 – 19 you will read the historical account of the prophet Elijah. Every time God called him to do something he was provided for. He was fed by Ravens with bread and meat 2 times a day in the desert. A poor Widow who God kept her bin and jar full of flour and oil to feed her son, Elijah and herself till the drought was over. Then Elijah had the world’s best wilderness room service, an Angel waking him up 2 times to eat the food it had prepared for him. That meal gave him enough strength to go 40 days and nights with nothing.

In between all of that were incredible signs of God’s miraculous power and miracles. Fire from heaven to consume an altar, raising the Widow’s son from the dead, declaring a drought has ended, God’s revelation to him on Mount Horeb after he ran from a queen who wanted to take his life.

He definitely did not have a boring life but one that required complete trust and faith in the one true God. Elijah was 100% human. And just like you and me he had a call on his life. He had a gifting, just like we all do. God asked him to do things that were crazy and required faith. Elijah obeyed and God came through. God never let him down and he will never let us down.

We are human but if we have received Christ as our savior and have been filled with the Holy Spirit – we have received HIS power and anointing inside of us! That is what equips us for everything he has called us to do.

Are you ready to do this with Him?
Read 1 Kings 17-19 and let your faith rise in our awesome God!
