How then can we know what God’s plans are for us? God places desires, dreams in your heart all the time, but often we are to distracted by other things.
One problem that plagues people today is the plague of “Selective Hearing”. In other words, we hear only the part of a message that agrees with our own point of view and we discard anything that doesn’t agree with us.
God reversed Elijah’s emotional burnout by meeting his basic needs. God wants us to slow down. He wants us to reach out to Him so that He can adjust the speed of our lives.
Elijah knew what we must know; a drought has a beginning and it has an ending. It won’t always be dry. It won’t always be dusty and barren. If you are in a drought, listen out with ears of faith – there is an abundance of rain coming in your direction.
I wonder if there are times when we treat God that way. Every time something bad happens, God is right there with us, getting us through the rough spots, holding us up, giving us strength. But instead of appreciating it, we sometimes tend to blame God when bad things happen.
Who are you? Really, who are you? You can fool the pastor, the Sunday school teachers, counsellors, and the people you work and live around, but your disguise that covers the sins that no one knows about is seen by the one that really matters, God.
