Do you present yourself or flee from the practical faith?
Hello to all the cybernauts. Are you prepared today?
I would like to know a little about you who are participating in the Campaign, as well as you, who have heard the audios and are following what we have spoken.
I cannot speak with you personally, but you can write here on the Blog!
“And it came to pass after many days that the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, saying, “Go, present yourself to Ahab, and I will send rain on the earth.” So Elijah went to present himself to Ahab; and there was a severe famine in Samaria. (I Kings 18: 1-2).[/floatquote]
You, who have been following from the beginning in regards to Elijah, know that the first time he presented himself to Ahab was to tell him that it would no longer rain. Now after three years, after the multiplication of the flour and the oil, after bringing back to life the widow’s son, and after so much time has passed by, God told him to present himself in front of Ahab again.
And what do I understand with this? That we act out our faith, confront the problem and hate sin and what is evil or is of the work of the devil, but maybe we are afraid to go back to present ourselves to whom we “hate”. Because that dark atmosphere, that “black cloud” stands between the individual and us. But you can see that our God, the God of Israel, encourages and teaches us, works and invests in us when He tells us to face the problems. He does not allow us to be accommodated! He makes it so that inside of us there exists a need to depend on Him.
And that’s how it happened … Elijah went to present himself to Ahab, and the famine was severe. The problem that Elijah provoked was huge; it worsened, because the hunger had become extreme in Samaria.
You can see that what was prophesied to King Ahab happened! His word was said and done, because it had Spirit. And what calls my attention is that our word has to be firm. Because you see: We speak and we can prophesy, just as we can “play” and not take it seriously, we don’t commit ourselves; we are not a person of word. And so our “reputation” is put in question, not because of pride, but because we must protect and preserve what is serious.
We must “watch our step” because we women usually talk a lot and even say things without thinking, much of which the heart is full. That is why there is a need to have constant vigilance, so that when we confront the problems, we will resolve them within, being firm in our words.
Do not run away from your commitments, of your word; let this one be “yes, yes, no, no.” Anything beyond this is not from God but from the evil one. Present yourself, do not flee, but solve it, as this is the Spirit of God and this is what He asks of us!
A big hug to you and see you until Friday!
