God’s Kingdom Mission – Walking Our Talk - Wednesday, April 18th

Then Elijah said to the people, “I alone am left a prophet of the Lord, but Baal’s prophets are 450 men. Now let them give us two oxen; and let them choose one ox for themselves and cut it up, and place it on the wood, but put no fire under it; and I will prepare the other ox and lay it on the wood, and I will not put a fire under it. Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord, and the God who answers by fire, He is God.” And all the people said, “That is a good idea.” So Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one ox for yourselves and prepare it first for you are many, and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under it.” Then they took the ox which was given them and they prepared it and called on the name of Baal from morning until noon saying, “O Baal, answer us.” But there was no voice and no one answered. And they leaped about the altar which they made. It came about at noon, that Elijah mocked them and said, “Call out with a loud voice, for he is a god; either he is occupied or gone aside, or is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and needs to be awakened.” So they cried with a loud voice and cut themselves according to their custom with swords and lances until the blood gushed out on them. When midday was past, they raved until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice; but there was no voice, no one answered, and no one paid attention. 1 Kings 18:22-29

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Matthew 5:45 tells us that that our Heavenly Father “sends rain on the righteous and unrighteous.” Conversely, when he withholds rain, it is from both the righteous and unrighteous. While our part includes helping others in ways that encourage them to make the choice between the one true God and false gods, it always includes much more. How we handle the absence or presence of provision (rain) in our own lives says a whole lot to those who observe us. We might not have the miracle of Mount Carmel to convince others, but the miracle of our own changed lives can be very convincing as others see that our “talk” about choosing God is backed up by a “walk” that consistently trusts the God we say we have chosen. When this happens we will be caught up in specialness of what God is doing in our dry time and not in grumbling about why it is happening and when is it going to end?

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, forgive me for all my grumbling. I am so prone to being more focused on my own comfort and my desire not to be inconvenienced, that I miss what you are seeking to do through the conditions of life you allow to take place. Thank you that you are real and never missing in action. I am learning that if you choose not to act on my behalf in ways that I want, it is always because you know better and are at work accomplishing greater things. Help me to align my life with you and your ways more than ever before. Amen!

Many thanks!

Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work?
I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a
daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my
personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
