Here's the deal. Elijah, while yes he was a prophet of the living God, was and is still just a man; an ordinary man, just like you and me. James, Jesus' brother, said of Elijah in his letter to those Jewish Christians who most probably lived beyond Palestine, that Elijah was just an ordinary man, very much no different than you and me.
I'd have to guess that none of us is going to be called upon to call down fire on a bull sacrifice anytime soon. But how did Elijah have such confidence and boldness in his request of God?
Last week we looked at prayer, not as rote repetition, but as real conversation. For Elijah, his conversations with our Living God were not only real, but they were frequent. His boldness, his courage, and his follow-through were all tremendously affected by the fact that he had personally seen our God act many times before.
Pray for real. Have real heart to hearts with the Lord. And do it often. Let's listen to this week's message.
