1 Kings 18:1-46; Acts 11:1-30; Psalm 135:1-21; Proverbs 17:12-13
God honors big prayers! Have you allowed your situation to stifle your prayers—so instead of praying miraculous prayers, you are praying measly prayers? Elijah knew how to pray big prayers! He called all the false prophets of Baal together for a showdown!
He allowed them to build an altar and put a sacrifice. But their god could not answer. Elijah, bold in faith, dug a trench around his altar, and poured water on it 3 times so that the sacrifice, altar and trench were soaking wet. Elijah called on God to answer by fire– and that is exactly what He did. You see, God will not be mocked.
God knows who He is and He is waiting for his children to acknowledge His power. There is no Biblical prayer that you can pray that God won’t answer! There is no godly dream that you can have that God won’t bring to pass! Don’t let the pressures of life cause you to question if God is able to hear and answer your big prayers! He most certainly will! Start asking God for big miracles today. He can do it! He will prove Himself to be God!
