James 5:17 Elijah was a human being like us, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth.
Not too long ago, we had a function here at Christianityworks to launch my latest book - Unlocking the Power of Prayer. One of our supporters has an office on the 42nd floor of an office tower that looks right down Sydney harbour - the harbour bridge, the Opera House. It's a stunning view on a good day. And he generously allowed us to use his boardroom and foyer to have the event.
But when we arrived about an hour before the event was to start, it was raining so heavily, you couldn't see out the windows.
He said "Oh well, looks like the rain's set in". I smiled and said, "We have an hour to go". So I prayed - just a quick prayer mind you. By the time the first guest arrived sure enough, we had the view back.
Sometimes, I think we get this idea that we can't go to God with the little things. Hmm - well I think it's time to think again.
No job's too big, no job's too small.
So many people yearn for a better life, which is why "self-improvement" is a multi-billion dollar industry. But the truth is, it doesn’t work, because the big changes, the truly important changes, are impossible to achieve on your own. That’s why Jesus came. So if you want to lay hold of the “super-abundant” life that He promised (John 10:10) download this free eBooklet, because that’s what it’s all about. The change you’ve been looking for!
