The Look Of Faith

Key Verse

“And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand.” 1 Kings 18:44

Text — 1 Kings 18:41-45


Look, according to the Oxford dictionary is an act of directing one’s gaze in order to see someone or something. On who is your gaze? Are you gazing on Jesus with Whom all things are possible or you are gazing on your problems? The more you look up to Jesus in faith, the less weighty your problems and challenges become. Faith means an unfailing trust in God to do all things. Elijah the prophet of God had said “…. there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” (1 Kings 17:1b) So there was no rain for three and half years.

After the draught, it was time for God to send down the rain and Elijah waited on God in prayers. He sent his servant to go and look towards the sea for a sign of answers to his prayers, but no good news until the seventh time. Cheer up and look up to Jesus by:

L – Lifting up your voice in prayer to Him daily;
O – Only believing what the word of God says concerning you;
O – Obeying all His commandments;
K – Knocking constantly on the door of heaven for answers to your prayer.
