Elijah was an ambassador for God. He prayed and God withheld the rain for three and a half years. Then Elijah prayed again, and God sent the rain. In 1 Kings 18, Elijah challenged the prophets of Baal to see whose god was the real God. They built an altar and called to their gods, but nothing happened. Then Elijah built an altar and even poured water all over it. Then He asked God to bring down fire from heaven. The Lord did this and consumed the entire sacrifice.
Sometimes we find it hard to ask for what we need. Perhaps it is because we are independent and too proud. We want to be self-reliant. We want to do things our way or we don’t want to do it at all. However, there comes a time when we have to say: “God, I see no way around this without your help. Lord, please undertake for me.” When you attempt big things for God, then you have to ask Him for what you need. When you come to the end of yourself It is a good place to be, because then when you see movement, God receives the glory. Our part is to come to Him in prayer and ask and wait in faith with an open heart and mind, trusting that He will make a way.
