WHEN THE BROOK DRIES UP
What is faith?
Faith is God’s currency in heaven
Activate your faith – Example: the woman with the issue of blood
Faith in reality is putting one’s weight upon.
Example: the four brothers who lied on one another without any chair
1 Kings 17:1-24(NIV)
The story of Elijah – you are walking in abundant blessings and suddenly the brook dries up
1. When the brook dries up, the heart of faith needs to know that God is up to something great.
Look at the indication of God’s past.
The past indicator of what God has done in your life is what He is going to do in your future.
David relied on the track record of God
Faith is putting your entire weight on who God is, on God’s character, on what He has done in the past, present and the future!
God wants us to grow up.
So that when the brook dries up, Elijah has to get moving – God moment.
The heart of faith knows that God is up to something great because He is pushing us out of our comfort zone.
2. When the brook dries up, the ears of faith must hear from God for a miracle
For a breakthrough.
When the brook dries up, the prophetic word of God comes
It is God’s nature to communicate with us regardless if we have sinned or not
The ability to hear God’s voice has to do with your proximity with God.
God is not going to compete with your distractions.
You have to get into the place of proximity.
The place of proximity is the place of intimacy and revelation
3. When the brook dries up, the walk of faith takes us to the blessing
Zarephath – the place of evil: requires a lot of faith!!
The walk of faith usually takes you to unlikely places
God’s track record is an indication of what He will do
Faith is putting your entire faith on who God is.
Faith operates on God’s economy (not subjected to the world’s economy)
4. When the brook dries up, the eyes of faith sees the accomplished before it happens
1 Kings 17:13
Elijah saw the cake even before it happens.
The eyes of faith sees the accomplished work of God before it happens.
The eyes of faith see what you have, and not what you do not have.
The eyes of faith sees what you wish for.
The eyes of faith see what we have in God.
