1 KINGS 17:8-16
“And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water. And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus”. Matthew 14:28, 29
With unwavering faith in God, every believer can do exploits in life and ministry. We shall consider some exploits by Elijah and Peter. The just shall be supernaturally sustained by faith.
Elijah and the widow of Zarephath were sustained by the little flour and the oil of the widow throughout the famine period.
Elijah said to that woman, This is what the Lord is saying, the oil and the flour shall not finish until the time that God sends rain back on the earth. The woman believed God and she saw the miracle of God.
Joshua told the sun to stand still and the sun stood still.
The word of the just carries enough power that can reverse the course of nature.
By the word of Elijah, the earth withdrew its rain for a period of three-and-a-half years and by the same word, the rain returned back to the earth again.
What a power that God has bestowed upon the mortal man and woman of faith!
When the word of God comes to you that you will complete your schooling; nothing can stop you from finishing that program. Those who have the revelation of the word of God are always lifted to a higher realm.
Peter and the other disciples of Jesus were in the boat on the sea. They saw Jesus walking on the water.
Peter already knew the power in the Word of God. He knew that if the Word of God was released, it carried with it a complete package of power to accomplish the will of God. Peter, having known the power behind the word said, Lord, if You are the one, invite me to come.
Peter knew he would not survive if he jumped into the river on his own, so he waited for a word from the Lord. Jesus spoke just a word, “Come.” That one word carried all the power of the Godhead. That word carried all miracle power. That one word turned the water into a solid ground for Peter to walk upon.
The just will truly do the miraculous by faith.
Thought for The Day:
Faith can move mountain of problems.
Song for The Day:
With the comprehensive faith in the blood of Jesus, We can move mountain.
